ED to investigate possible money laundering angle in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case

In a latest development, after late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father filed FIR against Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakarborty, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has stepped in the investigation and have asked Bihar Police to submit a copy of First Information Report (FIR) that was filed in Patna on Sunday.

Times Now reports suggest, ED is looking into the investigation for a possible angle of money laundering after Sushant’s father, KK Singh alleged that over Rs 15 crore was transferred from Sushant’s bank account.

The ED is also closely observing the two companies, Vividrage RhealityX Pvt. and Front India for World Foundation, in the investigation as they named Rhea Chakraborty as and her brother Showik Chakraborty as the directors of both the firms. Reports suggest that the address of both these companies are registered on a home address owned by Rhea and Showik’s father Indrajit Chakraborty in Navi Mumbai.

BJP leader Dr Subramanian Swamy has also been actively demanding a CBI probe into the case and has now addressed the ED investigation on Twitter. Take a look at the tweet here:

The FIR was registered in Patna, Bihar and gave Bihar Police wild-card entry into the investigation which was previously solely handled by Mumbai Police. On Thursday, a team of Bihar Police visited the late actor’s bank branch in Mumbai’s Bandra to collect details of his account transactions that are being brought up again and again.

In another set of developments in the case, the Supreme Court has dismissed a plea for CBI investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case. Sharad Arvind Bobde,Chief Justice of India have asked the petitioner, Alka Priya to approach the Bombay High Court if she had something concrete in the case.
