Bollywood actor Dino Morea and DJ Aqeel have been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in the Sterling Biotech alleged bank fraud and money laundering probe case, officials said on Monday. As per a PTI report, the actor and the disco jockey have both been summoned just after evidence was found that they were paid money by the Gujarat based pharmaceutical group in the past.
Dino Morea and DJ Aqeel will be questioned by the ED about the circumstances of these summons made out of the proceeds of crime identified in the case and their statements will be recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), the officials said. The two have not been able to provide a reaction on this case as of now.
The agency last week had made one of its largest PMLA attachments and frozen assets worth 9,778 crore of the group in India and abroad.
The alleged Rs. 8,100 crore bank loan fraud is being alleged to have been perpetrated by the Vadodara-based pharma firm and its main promoters Nitin Sandesara, Chetan Sandesara and Deepti Sandesara, all of whom are absconding.
Dino Morea has acted in several movies in the past such as Raaz, Ishq Hai Tumse, Baaz: A Bird in Danger, Aksar, Gumnaan- The Mystery, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna among others. DJ Aqeel is a successful disc jockey known for his famous remixes and is also a music composer.
