ED summons Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in panama papers leak case

Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for questioning in the Panama Papers leak case for allegedly violating FEMA.

The probe agency wants to question the actor over allegations of stashing wealth abroad, the sources said. She was also summoned earlier for questioning, but she had twice sought more time.

A top ED official confirmed that she was summoned to join the probe by Monday.

“We summoned her for December 20. As of now we haven’t got any reply from her side. The summon was sent to her Mumbai residence,” said an ED official.

If she doesn’t join the probe, the ED will think of further legal action. They might seek legal opinion from the experts to decide the future course of action, added the official.

“The Panama Papers” case is a sprawling investigation spanning millions of documents stolen and leaked to the media in 2016, which involve allegations that the world’s rich and powerful set up offshore accounts or shell companies to avoid taxes.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and others are named in the case.

According to ANI, the ED has registered a money-laundering case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA) in the matter.
