New Delhi: The latest development in Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case happens to be the involvement of Enforcement Directorate (ED) which has reportedly registered a money laundering case against late actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and some of her family members on the basis of an FIR lodged by Sushant’s father KK Singh.
According to the reports, ED sources have shared Rhea Chakraborty’s finance details to India Today, revealing that actress’s net worth saw an increase from Rs 10 lakh to 12 lakh and then Rs 14 lakh in the last few years.
The report states that Rhea allegedly bought two properties recently despite a meager net worth. One of the properties is in the name of the actress only, while the other one in her family member’s name. However, there’s no mention of who paid for both these properties.
Going by the reports, ED has asked for the property papers. The agency has summoned Chakraborty on Friday for questioning in connection with a money laundering probe. It has asked the ‘Jalebi’ actress to present herself at its Mumbai office to get her statement recorded in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) case.
The action comes in the wake of a case registered by the ED against Rhea and her family members. The ED’s money laundering case pertains to transactions involving Rs 15 crore and allegedly related to the ‘suicide’ of Sushant Singh.
So far, ED has questioned three persons in connections with the Bollywood actor’s alleged suicide. These include, Sushant’s CA Sandeep Sridhar, actor’s house manager Samuel Miranda; and Ritesh Shah, the CA of Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
Sushant’s father KK Singh had filed an FIR in Patna on July 25, accusing Rhea, Indrajit Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty, Showik Chakraborty, Samuel Miranda and Shruti Modi of abetment to suicide, fraud and holding Sushant hostage.
