Last week, the central agency had registered a case under the Personal Money Laundering Act (PMLA) for what it called "suspicious transactions."
Times Now reports that the ED is also looking at two high-end property purchases that Chakraborty , who was in a relationship with Rajput, had made in the recent past.
Earlier today, the apex court has directed the states of Maharashtra and Bihar, and Rajput's father, K K Singh, to file replies on Chakraborty's plea. In her plea, she had sought the transfer of an FIR lodged in Patna by Rajput's father who had accused her of abetting his suicide. The septuagenarian had also accused her of financial misappropriations, following which the Bihar Police had pressed the demand for a probe by the ED.

If cbi is the go to agency for investigating all high profile cases, why don't we bring a law towards that. Given the Local CID and police track record should stick to managing traffic.

All the classic phases are fitting and ending with the murder of Disha and Sushant. There is no doubt about this. But Rhea was not alone in this heinous crime. There are biggies. I hope they are unable to escape. I am marveling at remarkable the story of how a sweet-faced prostitute pulled a heist, killed a considerably talented upcoming artist, and influenced the Mumbai Police and Siv Sena !

A proper investigation will only reveal this to be a murder which was declared a suicide with no proper investigation and this murderer and accomplice needs to be mercilessly tried with iron fist of law.
