Actress Rakul Preet Singh was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a money laundering case involving a drug racket that was busted in Hyderabad in July 2017.
The 30 year old actress appeared before the ED in Hyderabad yesterday an hour before the scheduled time of 10.30 to avoid media chaos but was in for a surprise to see the media personnel waiting for her at the ED office. Reports say that the actress made a special request to the central agency and appeared three days before her scheduled summons due to her busy shooting schedule.
The actress was questioned on her alleged links with the drug racket and the case that was registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. She was asked to produce her bank statements to question the alleged suspicious transaction.
The actress was also questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau, Mumbai last year in September regarding an alleged drugs nexus in Bollywood. She was questioned about a reference to a word ‘doob’ that appeared in her WhatsApp conversations with actress Rhea Chakraborty.
