NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has registered a case of Rs 31 crore money laundering against movie producer Prerna Arora, who was arrested by the Economic Offence Wing (EOW) in 2018.
An ED source said that a case of money laundering was registered against Arora and she was asked to appear today at its Mumbai office for questioning.
However, Arora skipped the ED summons and informed the financial probe agency through her lawyers that she was out of town due to some work.
Arora is known for producing films like Akshay Kumar-starrer Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Padman, Sara Ali Khan and late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s Kedarnath, Akshay and Ileana D’Cruz’s Rustom, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-starrer Fanney Khan, among others.
The EOW had arrested Arora for allegedly cheating film producer Vashu Bhagnani of Rs 31.6 crore. She was charged under IPC section 420 (cheating) and IPC section 120B (criminal conspiracy).
