Swiss Govt Issues Notices To Congress Leader Bishnoi And His Wife

Mumbai: Congress' Kuldeep Bishnoi, son of Haryana Chief Minister Bhajan Lal, is facing a probe by multiple agencies. Switzerland government has issued public notices for sharing of details with India about Swiss bank accounts and other financial assets of him and his wife Renuka following receipt of an 'administrative assistance' request from the Indian authorities.

The Bishnois have been asked to reply within ten days to exercise their right to appeal against sharing of information as per the Swiss laws, according to two separate notices published in Switzerland's latest federal gazette, dated July 7, in Bern. Similar notices have also been issued for Grande Maison Ltd and Hollyport Ltd - two British Virgin Islands-based companies suspected to have links with the Bishnoi family.

Both the companies were incorporated on the same day on July 19, 1996 and also figured in 'Panama Papers', a leaked list of entities based in various tax havens. As per official records, both the companies were struck off from the registry of companies in April 2016 after remaining inactive since August 2014.

The tax department had also attached a five-star hotel in a prime business area of Gurugram, while designating that as a 'benami' or unaccounted property of the Bishnoi family. It was alleged at that time that the shareholding in the hotel was routed through a front entity registered in the British Virgin Islands.
