New Delhi: Former Union minister in the UPA government Preneet Kaur on Monday said that she did not have any foreign bank account.
The clarification came on a day when the government submitted names of three individuals having black money in foreign bank accounts to the Supreme Court.
Though Preneet Kaur's name was not in this list of three names, media reports suggested that she could be one of the names of foreign bank account holders which have not yet been disclosed by the centre.
Praneet Kaur, wife of former Punjab chief minister and now deputy leader of the Congress party in the Lok Sabha, Amarinder Singh, admitted that she had received a notice from the income tax (IT) department for the foreign bank account in 2011.
"In this regard, I can confirm receiving such a notice in 2011, and having replied it wherein I have strongly denied any such allegations," she said in a statement issued in Chandigarh on Monday.
"In keeping with my reply to the IT department, I should like to state that I never have had, and do not have any bank account(s) overseas in my name in any foreign bank," Preneet Kaur, who is now a Congress legislator in Punjab, said.
