After Prosenjit, ED summons Rituparna

Bengali film actor Rituparna Sengupta has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) next week in connection with the investigation into the Rose Valley ponzi scam, a day after it summoned superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee in the same case.

According to the sources, Sengupta allegedly accompanied Rose Valley group chairman Gautam Kundu on several foreign trips and helped him in the sale and production of films.

Chatterjee, meanwhile, had been asked to depose before the ED officials at the CGO Complex office in Salt Lake on July 19. The Tollywood actor’s statement will be recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The sources said the agency wanted to question Chatterjee about Rs 2.75 crore received by his company, Idea Locations and Production Pvt Ltd, from the Rose Valley group between 2010 and 2011. Of this, Chatterjee is suspected to have received about Rs 23.5 lakh.
