Sushant Singh Rajput’s death: Enforcement Directorate files money laundering case
Sushant’s father had recently filed an FIR accusing Rhea Chakraborty and others of illegally transferring money from Sushant’s account
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a money laundering case in relation to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Earlier this week, Sushant’s father had filed an FIR in Patna accusing Rhea Chakraborty and others of illegally transferring money from Sushant’s account and abetting his suicide.
After probing the FIR, the ED today filed a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) over suspicious transactions of Rs 15 crore, reports claim.
Sushant died by suicide at his Mumbai home on June 14. While the Mumbai Police is probing angles of professional rivalry in the case, the Bihar Police has been on the money trail of the cheating allegations. Earlier, former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis had urged the ED to register an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) in connection to the matter.
Meanwhile, Rhea, who was in a live-in relationship with Sushant, has told the Supreme Court that she has been falsely implicated in the FIR. Rhea had moved the apex court seeking transfer of the investigation to Mumbai.
