Arvind Kejriwal targets HSBC, Ambani brothers
(PTI) In his latest round of allegations, Arvind Kejriwal today targeted multinational HSBC Bank accusing it of indulging in money laundering and claimed Ambani brothers, Naresh Goyal and Congress MP Annu Tandon had parked their blackmoney in its Geneva branch.
Addressing a press conference, Kejriwal and lawyer Prashant Bhushan alleged around Rs 6,000 crore blackmoney was lying in 700 accounts of the Geneva branch of the bank.
They claimed that people who had deposited "small amounts of money" in the bank were raided but "big fish" like Mukesh and Anil Ambani, Naresh Goyal (Jet Airways), Tandon and Burmans (Anand, Pradeep and Ratan) of Dabur were "let off" at the behest of the government.
The activists claimed that the Ambani brothers had Rs 100 crore each, Reliance Group's Motech Software Rs 2,100 crore, late Sandeep and Annu Tandon Rs 125 crore each, Naresh Goyal Rs 80 crore and Dabur's Burman brothers Rs 25 crore in the list of around 700 people having accounts in HSBC as of 2006.
Spokesmen for HSBC and Burman brothers declined to comment while Tandon called the allegations "utterly baseless and motivated".
Rejecting the allegations, Mukesh Ambani-headed Reliance Industries Ltd said neither RIL or Mukesh have or had any "illegitimate" accounts anywhere in the world.
"As part of normal business, international subsidiaries of RIL deal with several global banks including HSBC. These accounts are fully complain with all regulations and are disclosed in their appropriate jurisdictions and in India.
