Mithun Chakraborty surrenders Rs 1.2 crores


KOLKATA: Actor Mithun Chakraborty on Tuesday surrendered to Enforcement Directorate (ED) an amount of about Rs 1.2 crore that he had received from scam-hit Saradha group of companies for being its brand ambassador.


Sources said a team of lawyers and other representatives of the actor reached the probe agency’s office at Salt Lake here and handed over a Demand Draft (DD) to the investigating officer (IO) of the case.

“This was part of Chakraborty’s earlier commitment that he would return the funds that he had received from the group. The DD has been given to the IO of the Saradha scam probe case,” sources said.
