Maharashtra BJP seeks ED, CBI probe in Sushant case




The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party in Maharashtra on Friday demanded a probe by the Enforcement Directorate and Central Bureau of Investigation into the alleged suicide of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis said that since the misappropriation (of funds) and money-laundering angle has emerged, the ED can register an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) to take the probe ahead.

“There is a huge public sentiment about handing over the case to the CBI, but looking at the reluctance of the state government, at least the ED can register an ECIR since misappropriation and money-laundering angle has come out,” said Fadnavis.

Making a plea for a ‘holistic’ probe by the CBI, senior BJP leader Ashish Shelar said that the separate investigations conducted by the Mumbai Police and the Bihar Police are heading in altogether different directions.

“The Mumbai Police is also not taking cognisance of people who are being named on social media. The police are calling some film directors and summoning the secretaries of other directors for investigation, so even the probe in the Bollywood angle does not appear to be done properly,” alleged Shelar.

He said that in order to cover all aspects and give justice to the late actor, the probe must be taken over by the CBI which can conduct a holistic investigation into all aspects.

However, State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Wednesday categorically ruled out handing over the investigation to the CBI saying the Mumbai Police probe is heading in the right direction.

Interestingly, Sushant’s ex-girlfriend and actress Ankita Lokhande has also sought a CBI probe, but the late actor’s former companion Rhea Chakraborty moved the Supreme Court demanding that the case registered against her by Bihar Police should be transferred to Mumbai Police.

Several other Bollywood personalities have also expressed views that the CBI should be entrusted with the probe in the past few days after the actor was found dead at his Mumbai residence on June 14.


ED summons Rhea Chakraborty for quizzing on Friday in PMLA case



Enforcement Directorate

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty on Friday for questioning in connection with a money laundering probe related to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, officials said on Wednesday.

A senior ED official told IANS: “The agency has asked her to present herself at our Mumbai office to get her statement recorded in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) case.”

Earlier in the day, the ED questioned Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda in the case. Miranda is the third person to be questioned by the agency in the matter.

The ED had on Tuesday grilled Rhea’s chartered accountant Ritesh Shah. On Monday, the agency had questioned Sushant’s CA Sandeep Sridhar.

The action comes in the wake of a case registered by the ED on Friday last against Rhea and her family members.

The ED’s money laundering case pertains to transactions involving Rs 15 crore and allegedly related to the ‘suicide’ of Sushant Singh.

The development comes after an FIR was lodged by Sushant’s father KK Singh in Patna against Rhea, accusing her of cheating and threatening his son. Sushant’s family has also accused her of keeping him away from his family.

The ED named Rhea and her family members in the case on the basis of the police FIR.

The official said that the central agency will summon a number of people for questioning in the case in the coming days.

The Central Bureau of Investigation has since received a notification from the government to register a case.
