New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) can file another case based on NCB’s findings in the death of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. While the ED is already investigating the case of money laundering. The case was registered by the ED following a complaint made by Sushant’s father to the Bihar Police, in which he has been accused of transferring Rs 15 crore from the deceased actor’s account to other bank accounts.
ED official said
At the same time, the NCB is arresting the late actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and questioning him. A top ED official has said that the Financial Investigation Agency is seeking legal advice to file a new case based on the findings of the NCB, as the NCB case has been registered under the NDPS Act. The officer said, ‘Earlier we had registered a case based on the complaint of KK Singh, which was related to withdrawing money from Sushant’s bank account. While the new case will be based on the findings of the NCB, because many arrests have also taken place in it.
Drug sale, purchase and smuggling
He further said that the ED will also look at the angle of money earned through drug smuggling and drug procurement. Another official said that the money that came through the sale, purchase and smuggling of drugs would be considered criminal proceeds in the new case. The officer also said, ‘We will take a copy of his inquiry from NCB and then study it. After that, we will decide to register a new case.
