Bollywood superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were amongst the many high profile names which figured in the Panama Papers expose. While the expose per say does not imply criminal conspiracy, the probe into the revelations has begun and in this context, the two Hindi film icons submitted the documents with the Enforcement Directorate, as sources claimed through their representatives.
The Bachchans submitted their documents through their representatives. Earlier, they were summoned by the ED and asked them to submit the documents. The Income tax department has launched 33 prosecutions linked to the names revealed in the Panama Papers and is probing others.
Previously, the ED received replies from Bachchan and his family members to notices issued to them in connection with its probe in the Panama Papers case. Along with them, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ajay Devgn would also receive summons from the ED under Section 37 of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), reports stated.
