Aishwarya Rai Bachchan left the Enforcement Directorate’s Delhi offices on Monday night after being questioned for over five hours in connection to alleged forex violations related to the Panama Papers case.
The probe agency has recorded Aishwarya’s statement in the case as she is facing allegations of stashing wealth abroad in violation of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). As per reports, it is alleged that the actress parked her money in a company based in the British Virgin Islands.
Aishwarya was summoned by ED earlier twice but she sought more time. The Enforcement Directorate started investigating the case in 2017. It issued notices to the Bachchan family asking them to explain foreign remittances since 2004 under the Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS) of the Reserve Bank of India.
Reportedly, Aishwarya has submitted foreign payments records received over the past 15 years.
