The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday recorded an illegal tax avoidance case based on a Bihar Police FIR in which Sushant Singh Rajput’s dad has charged on-screen character Rhea Chakraborty and her family of abetting the Bollywood on-screen character’s self destruction.
The central probe agency had recently called for the Bihar police first investigatrion report (FIR) and in the wake of contemplating it, the ED chose to slap charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), authorities said.
They said an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) has been documented against the denounced named in the Bihar Police FIR that incorporates Chakraborty, her family and six others.
A high-level meeting was held earlier at Bihar DGP’s office in Patna over the investigation being conducted by Bihar Police team in Mumbai regarding the case.
The Bihar police case was registered under various IPC sections including 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 380 (theft in dwelling house), 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 306 (abetment of suicide).
Moreover, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh recently said Mumbai Police are capable of handling the matter and that there was no need for a CBI probe into the case.
Mumbai police have recorded statements of Bollywood personalities including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, film critic Rajeev Masand, actress Sanjana Sanghi, the actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, casting director Shanoo Sharma, filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra, and Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films.
