Last year a document containing the names of many several world leaders and celebrities who had allegedly stashed away money in offshore companies had surfaced.
Now news just coming in that The Mumbai team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) has started giving fresh summons to celebrities involved in Panama Papers Case. The next round of interrogation is scheduled for next month.
According to some reports celebs like Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ajay Devgn are amongst the names against whom summons would be issued shortly from the agency under Section 37 of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).
The ED has not yet revealed the exact date on which the celebs will be summoned for interrogation at the Mumbai office.
Amitabh Bachchan came out publically and said “I do not know any of the companies referred i.e. Sea Bulk Shipping Company Ltd, Lady Shipping Ltd, Treasure Shipping Ltd, and Tramp Shipping Ltd. I have never been a director of any of the above-stated companies. It is possible that my name has been misused. I have paid all my taxes including on monies spent by me overseas. Monies that I have remitted overseas have been in compliance with the law, including remittances through LRS, after paying Indian taxes.”
