The Enforcement Directorate (ED) today said it had written to the Bihar Police for a copy of the FIR filed against actress Rhea Chakraborty and others to look into the possible money laundering angle in the finances of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who allegedly died by suicide recently.

Officials in the ED said the agency would study the FIR to assess if it merits a probe under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

SC rules out CBI probe

New Delhi: The SC on Thursday dismissed a PIL seeking transfer of probe into Sushant Rajput’s death from the Mumbai Police to the CBI. A Bench headed by CJI SA Bobde said the Mumbai Police should be allowed to do their job and if there was something, a plea could be filed in the Bombay HC. The Bihar Government too filed a caveat in Rhea’s petition to oppose her plea for transfer of case filed in Patna to Mumbai. TNS

Rajput’s father Krishna Kumar Singh (74) had on Tuesday lodged an FIR against Chakraborty, her family members and six others on the charges of abetment to suicide of his son. In the FIR, he alleged that Chakraborty befriended his son with an aim to further her own career.

The ED officials said the agency’s interest was limited to the allegations of mishandling of Rajput’s money and his bank accounts. It would investigate if anyone used his finances for money laundering and creating illegal assets.

According to reports, the late actor owned two firms — Vividrage Rhealityx and Front India for World Foundation. Incidentally, besides Rajput, other directors in the first firm are Chakraborty and her brother Showik. Showik also happens to be a director in the second company. The Bihar Police team today started the process of scrutinising financial transactions and bank account details of Rajput.
