He told reporters that the government probe into the leaked documents from a Bermuda-based global offshore law firm, detailing financial holdings overseas of over 714 Indian entities and individuals, will follow the process similar to the one undertaken in "Panama Papers" investigation "It will be found out that who are those people with totally illegal accounts and who have plausible defence...."
