Mumbai, Nov 9 (IBNS) Private carrier Jet Airways on Friday trashed the report that its chairman Naresh Goyal has an account in HSBC Bank's Geneva branch to keep black money after India Against Corruption (IAC) leader Arvind Kejriwal made the allegation in his fourth sensational "expose" on corruption.
Jet Airways in a statement said: "There is no account in the name Mr Naresh Goyal in the Swiss bank as has been alleged. Besides, Mr Naresh Goyal has been an NRI since January 1991. He is entitled to have bank accounts outside India.
"The suggestion that there has been any unaccounted money stashed away in Swiss accounts is entirely false," the statement said.
According to Kejriwal, the purported account of Goyal had Rs 80 crore in Dec 2006.
Jet Airways said Goyal had received a routine enquiry letter from the Income Tax Department regarding a bank account at HSBC Geneva in the name of M/S Tailwinds Ltd, a company based in the Isle of Man.
