Bajoria has been named in connection with the Panama Papers.[9] He has, however, clarified that he has not, nor has ever, owned Haptic BVI Ltd, the company of which Bajoria is listed as a beneficial owner. First Names Group, which along with Mossack Fonseca & Co, set up Haptic BVI Ltd issued a clarification through its representative stating that they made an administrative error on a form which they sent to Mossack Fonseca. The erroneous beneficial owner information on the form was entirely the firm's fault, as was the enclosure of the copy verification document.[10]
