Ranbir Kapoor summoned by Enforcement Directorate on October 6 in online betting case.
Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor, summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in an online betting case, has requested a two-week extension to appear in person. The ED had initially called him to its Raipur office on October 6, following which Kapoor sought additional time.
Sources within the ED reveal that Kapoor endorsed a subsidiary app promoted by the Mahadev Book app promoters and received cash for his promotion. He is currently under investigation for allegedly receiving hawala money from Mahadev Book promoters Sourabh Chandrakar and Ravi Uppal.
Previously, India Today reported that several actors and singers, including Tiger Shroff, Sunny Leone, and Neha Kakkar, attended Chandrakar’s wedding in UAE earlier this year. The ED is scrutinizing Mahadev Book, an online betting platform, and has found digital evidence indicating substantial cash transactions.
The ED has frozen assets worth Rs 417 crore related to the Mahadev online betting case, which operated from Dubai, using benami bank accounts for money laundering. It also uncovered large-scale hawala operations and cash expenditures for advertising illegal betting websites in India. The promoters of Mahadev Online Book Betting are based in Chhattisgarh and have facilitated various illegal betting websites.
