The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday said it had written to Bihar Police asking to provide it with the case details in the FIR against actress Rhea Chakraborty and others with the aim to look into possible money laundering angle in the finances of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who allegedly died by suicide.

Officials in the ED said the agency had written to the Bihar police in the context that it would look into the case with a possibility of investigation under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Sushant Singh’s father Krishna Kumar Singh (74) had, on Tuesday, lodged an FIR under various sections of the IPC against Chakraborty, her family members and six others on the charges of alleged abetment to suicide of his son.

In his FIR, Sushant’s father alleged that Chakraborty befriended his son with the aim to further her own film and television career.

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

According to reports, the late actor owned two companies — Vividrage Rhealityx and Front India for World Foundation. Incidentally, besides Sushant, other directors are Chakraborty and her brother Showik in the first company. Showik also happens to be a director of the second company.

The Mumbai police are already probing death of Sushant Singh Rajput (34), who was found hanging in his apartment in Mumbai’s Bandra area on June 14.
