The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday summoned Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for questioning in the Panama Papers leak case, according to the Economic Times. The agency asked the actress to come to his office for questioning and record her statement. However, Aishwarya has reportedly asked for another date for questioning.
ANI confirmed the development in a tweet as he tweeted, “Enforcement Directorate summons Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a case being investigated by the agency: Sources.” According to the news agency, the ED had registered a case against the actress for money laundering under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002 (PMLA). In fact, Aishwarya was allegedly summoned twice but was asked to appear before the ED.

The Panama Papers came to light in 2016 when they were leaked by John Doe, a Whistleblower. He leaked the documents to Bastian Obermayer, a German journalist. The Panama Papers includes financial details of approximately 214,488 offshore companies, accounting for approximately 11.5 million leaked documents.
A few major names from around the world were named in the hole. These included current or previous world pioneers, public authorities, legislators, superstars and corporate individuals. The Panamanian seaward law office and corporate specialist organization Mossack Fonseca was liable for making these reports. In March 2018, the organization Mossack Fonseca expressed that it would stop tasks toward the finish of that month because of “irreversible harm” to their picture as an immediate aftereffect of the Panama Papers.
