Actor Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide case investigation has gained momentum with ED and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish KUmar stepping in. Talking to India TV, Bihar CM said that the state government is willing to order a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death if his family requests the state to do so. Sushant Singh Rajput's family had filed a cheating case against his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty in a 6-page long FIR.

With new revelations, twists and turns daily, the case has turned murkier and the demand for a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has gained more strength. Not just fans, but many leaders from the political parties have also demanded a CBI probe in the case. After Sushant's father filed an FIR on Rhea Chakraborty accusing her of abetment to suicide, the actress reacted to the allegations on Friday and claimed that 'truth shall prevail." She also gave clarification about her viral video doing rounds on the internet in which she is seen talking about being a 'don' and controlling the boyfriend. Her reaction came after Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a money laundering case on the basis of a Bihar Police FIR.

The investigation has blown into a tug of war between the Bihar and the Mumbai Police. Actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showick's statements are yet to be recorded. "The Chief Minister will definitely act if demand for a CBI inquiry comes from the family of Rajput," said Bihar minister Sanjay Kumar Jha, who's a close aide of Nitish Kumar, according to PTI. Bihar Police visited Cooper Hospital seeking the actor's postmortem report.

    ED launches investigation into money laundering case in Sushant Singh Rajput case

    ED has registered a case of money laundering in the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case and has started the investigation. The ED has registered a case against Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty. ED's Mumbai branch will carry on its investigation at certain points. Finance records of the last few months of both the companies of Rhea Chakraborty and her brother are being tracked. Rhea and her brother started two companies between September 2019 and January 2020. Surprisingly, since then to date there has been no exchange of money in these companies. 

    ED is also ascertaining whether these two companies were opened for the purpose of Shell Company. Additionally, the ED team will also investigate the bank accounts of Rhea Chakraborty and her family. Investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput's bank account has also started. The ED team suspects that about Rs 14 crore has been withdrawn from Sushant's account and invested in a shell company, so the ED team is also investigating from this angle. Sushant Singh Rajput formed one of his company Innsaei Ventures in 2018 and its record is also being investigated.

    According to sources, in the next few days, ED may summon Rhea Chakraborty and her brother to join the investigation. The ED will not only investigate the personal bank accounts and corporate accounts of Rhea, her brother, and her close ones but will also try to know from Rhea about her source of income despite not having big projects.

The list includes his plans to practice transcendental meditation daily from June 29. Other instructions include "make your bed" after waking up, "read books, watch content movies/series, learn guitar and workout" among other things.

    "Bhai's White Board where he was planning to start his workout and transcendental meditation from 29th June daily. So he was planning ahead. #justiceforsushantsinghrajput," Shweta wrote.

    She also wrote, "“Your branches may twist and turn as you flex toward the light, yet your unwavering intentions will ensure that no faint wind will sway you from your mission” #JusticeforSushantSingRajput #Seekingstrengthandunity #biharpolice"
