Sandeep Sridhar, the chartered accountant of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, was interrogated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday (August 3) in the money laundering case. An official confirmed the news to a News Channel. The ED had registered a money laundering case on Friday (July 31) in connection with the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
In its complaint, the Central Investigation Agency has taken cognizance of an FIR lodged by Bihar Police against actress Rhea Chakraborty and some others for making criminal charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMAL). An Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) has been filed against the accused named in the Bihar Police FIR.
It is believed that the ED took up the matter after studying the FIR and collecting independent information about Rajput’s income, bank accounts, and companies.
Rajput’s father Krishna Kumar Singh (74) filed a police complaint on Tuesday (July 28) against Rhea Chakraborty, her family members, and six others for abetting his son to suicide. Singh alleged that Rhea, the budding film actress, befriended her son in May 2019 to further help her career.
