SC moved to bring back 'Rajiv money'

The petitioner, Manohar Lal Sharma, claimed that the money was lying dormant in the Swiss bank and, if unclaimed, would go to the Swiss government.

Sharma based his information on Swiss magazines “SI 46/1991 - Fluchtgelder - Seiten 40/41,” and  “SI 46/1991— flight capital—pages 40/41,” which he said carried details of the amount held by politicians of different countries, including Rajiv Gandhi.

He said the journals disclosed a list of politician-account holders along with their photos. One of the accounts belonged to the late Gandhi, having a balance of Swiss franc 2.5 billion since 1989, which had grown to 8.06 billion Swiss franc.
