Bollywood giant Amitabh Bachchan and daughter-in-law and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in response to a summon by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) have submitted documents of their financial dealings. The papers submitted through their representatives are in connection with the ongoing Panama Papers probe.
The Panama Papers are 11.5 million leaked documents that detail financial and attorney-client information for more than 214,488 offshore entities. The documents, which were leaked in 2015 by an anonymous source dated back to the 1970s, belonged to the Panamanian law firm and corporate service provider Mossack Fonseca. The Income tax department has launched 33 prosecutions linked to the names revealed in the Panama Papers and is probing others.
