On Monday, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned DJ Aqeel and Bollywood Actor Dino Morea for interrogating in the Sterling Biotech bank fraud and money laundering scam, reports an official.
The popular Disc Jockey (DJ) and the Bollywood Actor have been urged to overturn before the ED as it has got clear evidence, which the two were paid some amount earlier by the Gujarat-based pharmaceutical group, it said.
Both will be interrogated about the conditions of these payments made out of the profit of crime identified in the scam and their statement will be recorded under PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act), added the official.
Dino Morea as a popular model has also worked in a number of Bollywood film, and Aqeel is a popular DJ. However, the two couldn’t be immediately reached for reaction.
Last week, the probe agency had made one its largest PMLA attachment and seized assets amounted 9778 crores of Sterling Biotech in India and in foreign.
The reported Rs. 8100 crore bank loan scam is being alleged to have been performed by the Vadodara-based Pharma firm along with its main promoters Chetan Sandesara, Nitin Sandesara, and Deepti Sandesara, all of whom have escaped.
The Sandesaras are under investigation for their reported nexus with some high-profile politician by the probe agency, ED, the IT Department, and CBI under criminal sections, which deal with tax evasion and corruption.
