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”.
