Aishwarya Rai grilled by ED for six hours in Panama Papers case

The ED recorded Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's statement under the provisions of the Foreign Exchange Management Act

Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was questioned for about six hours on Monday by the Enforcement Directorate at its office in central Delhi. She was summoned in a case linked to the 2016 'Panama Papers' global tax leaks case.

The quizzing of the daughter-in-law of superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan comes weeks after her husband Abhishek Bachchan was questioned by the agency in another case related to the Panama Papers leak.

The ED recorded Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's statement under the provisions of the Foreign Exchange Management Act.

The former Miss World left the agency's office located in Jam Nagar house in the Capital shortly after 7 PM.

The actor was moved out in a white car from the back door of the ED office even as a huge posse of media personnel waited at the front gate to get her comment.

The actor, sources said, has submitted some documents to the investigators with regard to the case.

Reports quoting sources said that Aishwarya Rai has submitted foreign payments records received over the past 15 years.

Said she had been reportedly named Director of an offshore company - Amic Partners - set up in the British Virgin Islands in 2004.

Dubbed 'Panama Papers', an investigation of a stockpile of records from Panamanian legal firm Mossack Fonseca by the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) in 2016 had named several world leaders and celebrities who allegedly stashed away money abroad in offshore companies.

Some of them are stated to be holding valid overseas accounts.

The leaked tranche had a total of 426 India-linked cases.

The ED has been probing the case linked to the Bachchans since 2016-17.

It had issued notices to the Bachchan family asking them to explain their foreign remittances since 2004 under the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS) and regulated under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).

Some documents were submitted by the Bachchans to the agency then.

Some other instances of alleged irregularities linked to the family are also under the scanner of the federal probe agency, the sources said.
