On Friday, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has lodged a money laundering case in connection with the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Reportedly, the case has been filed for "suspicious transactions" worth Rs 15 crore which was transacted from the actor's account and proceeds from the alleged crime, as claimed by his family.
The agency has taken note of an FIR by Bihar Police, registered against actress Rhea Chakraborty and some others to slap criminal charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in its complaint.
An NDTV report quoted a source revealed that the probe agency had registered an ECIR (Enforcement Case Information Report) on Friday and that it would "look into the allegation of suspicious transactions in the bank account of the actor. Suspected persons will be issued summons early next week to join the probe".
On Tuesday, Sushant's father KK Singh lodged an FIR against his rumored girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty at the Rajiv Nagar Police station in Patna. Now, a team from Bihar police has arrived in Mumbai to investigate the actor’s death by suicide.
The ED had recently sought the FIR copy from the Bihar Police post the FIR was lodged on Tuesday.
A four-member team of Bihar police is running a parallel investigation in Mumbai and they recently spoke to Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Mitu Singh who revealed that she stayed with the actor for a few days when Rhea left his home on June 8.
