The Enforcement Directorate has summoned actor Ranbir Kapoor to a hearing about an issue involving the Mahadev online betting app.
Ranbir Kapoor must appear before the organization on October 6. A money laundering inquiry involving Sourabh Chandrakar and Ravi Uppal, the developers of the Mahadev betting software, is the subject of the case. The ED seized illegal earnings worth 417 crore in a prior money laundering case.
According to reports, Ranbir Kapoor received cash in return for endorsing and engaging in promotional activities for the Mahadev betting app.
The ED is reportedly looking into several Indian and Pakistani celebrities, in addition to Ranbir Kapoor, for attending Sourabh Chandrakar’s wedding in Dubai, including Tiger Shroff, Sunny Leone, Neha Kakkar, Atif Aslam, and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
Earlier ED searches targeted the Mahadev betting app and its alleged money-laundering networks in a number of locations, including Mumbai, Kolkata, and Bhopal. The central agency has seized illicit profits worth 417 crore during its inquiry.
Sourabh Chandrakar and Ravi Uppal introduced the software and website for practices like those seen in online casinos and betting platforms that are outlawed in India. The team continues to operate in a number of other countries even if the app is illegal in India.
Despite the fact that the federal agency and the Chhattisgarh police issued Look Out Circulars against both of the accused in August, Sourabh Chandrakar and Ravi Uppal are now in the United Arab Emirates. Last month, the pair’s application for entry to Australia was denied due to the money laundering probe in India.
