The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Tuesday said that no summon has been issued to any Member of Parliament (MP) in connection with investigation of black money cases.
"It has also been reported (in sections of press) that summons have been issued to some Members of Parliament. This information is factually incorrect and is therefore denied", CBDT said in a press release.
The CBDT was responding to media reports that summons were issued to three MPs from Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Kerala to appear for questioning at the Delhi office of I-T department's recently-set up Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) and explain source of funds parked in Geneva accounts.
According to reports, some investigations relating to banking information received from overseas were referred to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation by the CBDT for prosecution.
