RIL dismisses Kejriwal allegations

Mumbai, Nov 9 (IANS) Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) Friday denied all allegations levelled by India Against Corruption (IAC) activist Arvind Kejriwal against the company and its chief Mukesh Ambani.

"Neither Reliance Industries Limited nor Mukesh Ambani have or had any illegitimate accounts anywhere in the world," an official spokesman said here, shortly after Kejriwal made the allegations earlier in the day.

The spokesman pointed out that RIL had business interests in several countries with turnover running into thousands of crores of rupees.

"As a part of their normal business, these international subsidiaries of RIL deal with several global banks, including HSBC. These accounts are fully compliant with all regulations and are disclosed in their appropriate jurisdictions and in India," the spokesman said.

He said the continued tirade of baseless allegations being made by Kejriwal and IAC against RIL appear "to be instigated by vested interests".
