In fresh trouble for Punjab Congress president Capt Amarinder Singh, his son Raninder Singh was Saturday issued summons by Chief Judicial Magistrate, Ludhiana, Ranjeet Sharma following a complaint filed by the Income Tax department. The complaint claims that Raninder lied on oath to the IT department about trusts allegedly owned by him in British Virgin Islands as well as about money in Switzerland-based accounts.

Raninder has been asked to appear in court on the next date of hearing, July 26.


The complaint, filed by Amit Dua, deputy director, IT (investigations), under section 277 of the IT Act, 1961 and sections 177 and 181 of the IPC, stated that the accused is a beneficiary of foreign assets maintained and controlled through foreign business entities. The complaint alleges that the accused had denied it by submitting a “wrong” affidavit in April last year.
