Kochi, May 8: Former Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan today termed as "baseless" allegations that he and his relatives possessed blackmoney, saying he did not even have a "single paise" of ill-gotten money.
Asked by reporters here about Director General of Income Tax (Investigation) E T Lukose's recent statement that three of Balakrishnan's relatives were found to be having blackmoney, he said it was a "serious" allegation against his relatives, which was "baseless".
Reacting for the first time on the top IT official's remarks, the NHRC Chairman said his statement was "incorrect".
"Neither I nor my relatives have even a single paise of black money.
"I do not have any blackmoney. From me or my relatives no black money has been found," he said, adding he had no objection to disclose income tax returns filed by him from 2005-2010. PTI
