Sushant Singh Rajput case: Rhea Chakraborty likely to appear before ED today

Mumbai: Rhea Chakraborty is expected to appear before Enforcement Directorate on Friday in connection with a money laundering probe related to late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s case. The central probe agency had lodged a money laundering case against Rhea and her family members on the complaint of Rajput’s family. The ED on August 4 had grilled Rhea’s chartered accountant Ritesh Shah. It had also questioned Sushant’s CA Sandeep Sridhar on August 3.

Sushant’s father Krishna Kumar Singh had filed a complaint against Rhea accusing her of taking Rs 15 crore from the last actor. The deceased’s father has claimed that there was Rs 17 crore in his son’s account in 2019, and later Rs 15 crore was transferred to the accounts not linked to him.

ED filed a complaint on the basis of the FIR registered with Bihar Police.

Bihar Police have booked Rhea and five others under IPC Section 306 (Abetment of suicide), Sec 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint), Sec 342 (Punishment for wrongful confinement), Sec 380 (Theft in dwelling house), Sec 406 (Punishment for criminal breach of trust), and Sec 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property).

The Patna police had registered a case against Chakraborty, her parents Indrajit Chakraborty and Sandhya Chakraborty, brother Showik Chakraborty, and common friends Samuel Miranda and Shruti Modi.

Rajput was found hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14.

The CBI on Thursday took over the investigation into the Sushant Singh Rajput death case and re-registered the Patna police FIR. The CBI registered a case against six persons, including Rhea and her family members, on the basis of the FIR filed by Bihar Police on his family’s complaint.

Rhea has also moved the top court after the Sushant’s father Krishna Kishore Singh filed the FIR with the Bihar Police.
