Centre says it will investigate Pandora Papers cases

New Delhi: The government will investigate every Indian name appearing in an unprecedented leak of financial records, known as the ‘Pandora Papers’, which alleged that many world leaders have secret offshore stores of wealth.

A Multi-Agency Group made up of the tax department, Enforcement Directorate, RBI and FIU, will probe the names and the government will seek from foreign jurisdictions information about Indians in the list, CBDT said in a statement.

The statement neither named any individual it would investigate nor gave a timeline for completing the probe.
