New Delhi, Feb 16: A latest statement by the spokesperson of Swiss embassy on Thursday, Feb 16 created confusion among the Indians. The official claimed that the statement recently given by investigative agency - Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) was "uncorroborated".

Swiss Embassy on Thursday issued a statement saying, "It wishes to make a clarification in view of unsubstantiated media reports that have been recently published about Switzerland and Swiss Banks."

"There have been several speculations about the amount of wealth held by Indians in Swiss Banks...Such estimates and statistics lack of evidence and are uncorroborated," adds the issued statement.

Media reports quoted Mr Singh as saying, "India has suffered due of illegal flow of funds. Nearly 500 billions dollars of illegal money is abroad."

"Maximum number of account holders in Swiss banks are believed to be Indians," said Mr Singh.
