The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has sought the FIR filed by Sushant Singh Rajput's father to examine his complaint against Rhea Chakraborty over siphoning off Rs 15 crore.

A source has confirmed to Moneycontrol that the central agency has sought for a copy of the FIR filed by Sushant's father against Rhea Chakraborty.

The late actor's father KK Singh had, on July 28, lodged an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and six others, including her family members, under various sections of the IPC including abetment to suicide, wrongful confinement, theft, criminal breach of trust, etc.

Following this, Chakraborty had moved the Supreme Court, seeking the transfer of investigation from Patna to Mumbai.

Citing the FIR filed by Sushant's father, the source told Moneycontrol, that there are allegations of Rs 15-17 crores being siphoned off by Rhea Chakraborty and her family members from the late actor's bank accounts. The FIR added that the money was transferred to anonymous bank accounts by Rhea, her family members and her accomplices, over a period of time.


ED would look into the money laundering aspect mentioned in the FIR. The agency can take up the case as Rhea has also been booked under Section 420 of the IPC, in which ED has jurisdiction to investigate. The section deals with cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property.

Sushant Singh Rajput was the owner of three start-up companies, of which two were co-owned by Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, as per details provided by Mumbai Police in their investigation.

While Sushant alone was the Dirctor of Innsaei Ventures, Vividrage Rhealityx had Sushant, Rhea and Showik as directors; and  Front India for World Foundation had Sushant and Showik as directors.

Besides, two companies had addresses of a flat in Ulwe, Panvel, which reportedly belongs to Rhea's father.
