As per reports, money was directly transferred from Sushant Singh Rajput’s bank account to Rhea Chakraborty ‘s brother, Showik Chakraborty’s account. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) will be investigating a money-laundering angle in the case.
It’s been almost two month since Sushant left for the heavenly abode but no justice has been provided in the case as of now. The investigation is getting murkier day by day. Yesterday Rhea was interrogated by the ED for 8 and a half hours and she was not able to give straight answers and it has also been reported that she refused to cooperate. ED has been interrogating her in the money laundering angle of the case and was hence summoned with respect to the Prevention of Money Laundering Act Case.
As per the reports of a news channel, Showik Chakraborty’s bank statements clearly state that the money was transferred to his account from that of Sushant’s. According to News18.com, this money was transferred from Sushant’s Kotak Mahindra Bank account.
The source has also mentioned that about Rs. 40,000 were transferred from Sushant’s account on June 10 2019 with an additional Rs. 10,000 transferred in December 2019. Also, there was a transfer of Rs. 1 lakh to his account as well and the same will be investigated if that traces back to the late actor’s account as well.
Mumbai Police had already ruled Sushant Rajput’s death as a case of suicide but fans have been rooting for a CBI inquiry for the actor ever since the tragic event of his demise. Everyone believes that it was not a case of suicide but murder. Finally, a few days ago the Central Government has transferred the case to CBI and there are rays of hope for the fans that justice will be served. Sushant’s case was recently handed over by the CBI to the Anti Corruption Unit’s Special Investigative Team.
