“Since the government had already given, on June 27, the entire list to the (apex court appointed) SIT (Special Investigation Team), it has no difficulty in giving it to the court and the entire list will be placed before it tomorrow (Wednesday morning),” Jaitley said.

In an affidavit Monday, the government disclosed the names of three people, including industrialist Pradeep Burman, who have bank accounts in foreign countries and are now under the lens of Income Tax authorities.

Jaitley had earlier said the names would be disclosed as and when the cases are filed in court.
