Panama Papers scam: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gets mobbed as she leaves ED office after 6 hours

Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was questioned for about six hours on Monday by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) at its office in central Delhi in a case linked to the 2016 ‘Panama Papers’ global tax leaks case, official sources said.

The quizzing of the 48-year-old 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 emerging from the same set of papers linked to the offshore leaks case, they said.

The ED 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). 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, IANS sources said.
