Investigation of the Panama Papers by The Indian Express shows the existence of one offshore entity owned by corporate lobbyist Niira Radia known as an International Business Company (IBC) registered in the British Virgin Islands by Mossack Fonseka in 1994.

Radia is shown as a British citizen in these documents and, interestingly, it is publicly known that Radia had a company by the name of Crownmart International (India) Pvt Ltd when in London which has been described as a “general business” enterprise set up by her. Both companies, it now turns out, were family enterprises with Radia herself being the primary shareholder.
