Former Miss World actress Aishwarya Rai has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in connection with the Panama case.
According to Indian media reports, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been asked by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) investigating the Panama Papers case to come to the ED’s Delhi office today and record her statement. However, the actress has requested to adjourn the hearing.
Earlier, the actress was also sent a notice on November 9, 2021, according to which she had to submit a reply within 15 days, while Aishwarya had twice asked for extra time to submit a reply.
Indian media say Aishwarya Rai has been charged under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002 (PMLA).
It should be noted that the names of actors Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn, including Aishwarya Rai, also came to light in the Panama Papers case.
