A day back, the Supreme Court handed over Sushant Singh Rajput’s case to the CBI after hearing Rhea Chakraborty’s petition seeking transfer of FIR from Bihar to Mumbai. The Enforcement Directorate has been probing Sushant’s case from the money laundering angle and several people have been quizzed. Now, as per reports, filmmaker Rumi Jaffery also was called by the ED for questioning today. The filmmaker arrived at the ED office for a probe related to the money laundering angle alleged in Sushant’s case. 

The filmmaker had earlier revealed in certain interviews that Sushant was all set to work with Rhea Chakraborty in a film that he was backing. However, before things could start, the actor passed away on June 14. Reports had come in this morning that Rumi was to appear before ED as they had summoned the filmmaker. Now, as per ANI, Rumi arrived for questioning in Sushant’s case. As per earlier reports, it was revealed that the ED may probe the filmmaker about any kind of advance payment that he may have done to Sushant or Rhea with regards to his film.
