Sushant Singh Rajput case: Late star's family's 'money laundering' allegations against Rhea Chakraborty was "based on a misconception"

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) probing the ‘money laundering’ angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, has reportedly found “nothing suspicious or irregular” in alleged money transactions with Rhea Chakraborty.

The central financial agency, that has been probing the matter for about 2 months, investigated all aspects of the late finances, including his bank accounts, professional deals and businesses. In a report on Mumbai Mirror, the agency has reportedly found that late SSR’s family may not have had an idea about his finances and hence made allegations of misappropriation of funds to the tune of Rs 15 crore.

An ED source told Mirror, “It appears there were some misconceptions on their part. [Rajput’s] family had no idea about his finances or how he conducted his financial activities. For instance, he made payments, including taxes, through his chartered accountant/s and of course the family would not have known about such things.”

According to the source, investigators have found that Rs 2.78 crore from the account went towards paying taxes, including the Goods and Services Tax.

While stating that the probe into the actor’s finances is still on, the report also states that nothing ‘suspicious or irregular’ has been found. The ED is still scrutinising certain small transfers from the late actor’s bank accounts.
