By The SATimes News Service

New Delhi/Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which registered a case of money laundering in connection with the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, is soon likely to register another case on the basis of the findings of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

The ED has registered a case of money laundering on July 31 on the basis of an FIR filed by the Bihar Police on the complaint of Sushant’s father K. K.Singh.

Singh in his complaint to the Bihar Police had alleged that Rs 15 crore was withdrawn from the account of the late actor to other bank accounts of which the family has no connection. A top ED official said that the agency is looking at all the angles to register a fresh case of money laundering on the basis of the findings of the NCB.

The official said that the financial probe agency is taking legal assistance to understand the legality for registering a fresh case as the case of NCB has been registered under the NDPS Act.

The official said, “Earlier we registered a case on the basis of Singh’s complaint, which dealt with the money laundering in relation to Sushant’s bank account. While the new case will be based on the findings of the NCB, as it has made several arrests.”

The official further said that the ED will also look after the angle of money generated through the drug trafficking and drug procurement.
