Sushant Singh Rajput case: Rhea Chakraborty to be summoned next week for money laundering
The actress will be questioned in conjunction with Sushant's case
According to reports, the Enforcement Directorate will summon Rhea Chakraborty next week in conjunction with Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.
The Bihar police are continuing to look into the circumstances surrounding Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14. Since the late actor’s parents filed a FIR against Sushant’s ex-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty of involvement in his suicide, the police have cast a spotlight on her possible connection. According to a report by Times Now, the actress will be summoned for questioning next week for money laundering.
Several reports have said the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a money laundering case with potential charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Rhea Chakraborty and her family and six others.
This comes after the FIR filed by Sushant’s father alleged that Rs 15 crore is missing from the late actor’s account. The ED is set question those involved with the ‘suspected illegal money transactions’. In addition, the ED will be investigating Sushant's two companies, Vividrage RhealityX Pvt. and Front India for World Foundation, of which girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty are directors of both the firms.
Rhea has spoken through her lawyers saying ‘the truth will prevail'. In a video statement released by her lawyers, the actress said, “I believe that I will get justice. Even though a lot of horrible things are being said about me on the electronic media, I refrain from commenting on the advice of my lawyers as the matter is sub judice. Satyamev Jayate, the truth shall prevail,” her statement read.
