Vijan debuted as a film director with “Raabta”. Sushant starred opposite Keerthi Sanon in “Raabta”, which was released in 2017. Vijan was also a co-producer of the film. The film exploded at the box office.
The ED had registered a case of money laundering on July 31 on the basis of an FIR lodged by the Bihar Police on the complaint of Sushant’s father KK Singh.
In the FIR, Singh had alleged that an amount of Rs 15 crore was transferred from his son’s Kotak Mahindra bank account to other bank accounts with which he had no connection.
The ED has questioned many people, including Sushant’s girlfriend Riya Chakraborty, her brother Shovik and father Indrajit.
Sushant was found dead in his Bandra flat on 14 June.
