The Sushant Singh Rajput death case has taken a new turn after a "suspicious transaction" worth Rs15 crore came under the lens of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) of India.
The development comes after Sushant's father KK Singh has lodged an FIR against his actress girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty alleging that Sushant's money was being used by her. Now she has quoted about how Sushant's father had in his initial statement mentioned that the late actor was feeling low due to the ongoing tension in the film industry.
The FIR has been filed under IPC Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 380 (theft in dwelling house), 406 (criminal breach of trust) and 420 (cheating). The police are investigating the case.
No Prevention of Money Laundering Act case has been registered by ED yet.
Earlier in the day, the Indian Supreme Court dismissed an appeal for transferring the probe into Sushant Singh Rajput's death to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). "It would be just and expedient, if the transfer of the case is directed from Patna to Mumbai", the plea said. In the bank detail it was found that Sushant's sister Priyanka Singh was the nominee of his bank account and some transactions revealed that Sushant Singh also used to bear the expenses of flights and hotels of Rhea Chakraborty and his brother Shovik Chakraborty.
"He committed suicide on the morning of June 14 at his Bandra residence by hanging himself".
Mumbai Police has recorded statements of over 40 people including Aditya Chopra, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Mahesh Bhatt, Rhea Chakraborty, among others in relation to Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
