ED registers case against Rhea Chakraborty


The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has lodged a money laundering case against Rhea Chakraborty in connection with actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.

Top officials of the probe agency said Rhea and her family members have been booked by ED. They have been booked under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The Enforcement Directorate on Thursday had sought details from the police about the FIR registered in the actor’s death. In the complaint filed by Sushant’s father KK Singh, Rhea and her family members have been charged with committing a fraud of Rs 15 crore.

An ED official said that after going through the details, ED has lodged the case. In the coming days, Rhea, along with others, will be summoned for questioning, the official added.

ED sources said that their probe will be focused on the allegations of Rs 15 crore fraud among other things. Bihar police on Thursday sought details from Sushant’s bank.
