Dino Morea, DJ Aqeel gets ED citations

NEW DELHI: The Execution Directorate has summoned the actor Dino Morea and to question them here later this week, after the details of the alleged cash payments of Sterling Biotech, under investigation for money laundering, arose. The promoters of Nitin and Chetan Sandesara are running away and have been accused of laundering more than 14,500 million rupees taken as loans from government-owned banks.

The ED last week had attached assets valued at more than 9,700 rupees, including four oil rigs, ships and aircraft belonging to the defendant.

Like Dino Morea and DJ Aqueel, the Delhi-based lawyer had received several cash payments from the accused in the Sterling Biotech case and had used the proceeds to purchase farmhouses in Delhi. Three I-T officials have also been accused along with the lawyer in this case. A top Congress leader and his son-in-law have also been associated with the Sandesara brothers.
