Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate on Monday, August 3 questioned the chartered accountant (CA) of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in connection with a money-laundering probe that stemmed from a complaint lodged by Rajput’s father with the Bihar police, officials said.

They said that Sandeep Shridhar has been questioned in Mumbai by the central probe agency and his statement recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The CA is understood to be handling the actor’s finances for about a year and the ED wants to understand his financial dealings in order to take the probe forward. Rajput, 34, was found dead inside his apartment in Mumbai’s Bandra area on June 14.

The questioning is linked to the money laundering case that was registered by the ED last week on the basis of a Bihar Police FIR in which Sushant Singh Rajput’s father has accused actress Rhea Chakraborty and her family of abetting the Bollywood actor’s suicide. At least two companies linked to Rajput and some financial deals involving Chakraborty and her brother Showik are under the ED scanner.

Chakraborty, her bother and others are expected to be summoned by the agency for questioning soon. The ED case has been filed against the accused named in the Bihar Police FIR that includes Chakraborty, her family and six others.

Rajput’s father Krishna Kumar Singh (74), who resides in Patna, had last month lodged a complaint with the Bihar Police against Chakraborty, her family members, and six others for abetment to suicide of his son and fraud. Singh has accused Chakraborty, the purported girlfriend of Rajput, of having befriended his son in May 2019 with the intention of furthering her own career.

He also wanted a police investigation to ascertain where the Rs 15 crore deposited in a bank account held by Rajput was transferred. The Mumbai police are also probing the alleged suicide case and has questioned several top Bollywood producers and directors in this case.
