NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate on Thursday summoned actor Prakash Raj for questioning in connection with a money laundering case linked, official sources said Thursday.

The case pertains to an alleged Rs 100 crore ponzi and fraud scheme by a Tiruchirapalli-based jewellery group.

According to a PTI report, ED conducted raids against Pranav Jewellers, a partnership firm based in Tiruchirapalli, and seized “unexplained” cash of Rs 23.70 lakh and some gold jewellery.

Raj (58) has been a brand ambassador of this company.

The actor has been asked to depose before the federal agency in Chennai next week.

Raj, who has played various roles in Hindi and South Indian movies, has been an outspoken critic of the BJP and PM Modi.

The ED case stems from an FIR of the Tamil Nadu Police Economic Offences Wing.

According to the police complaint, Pranav Jewellers and others collected Rs 100 crore from the public under the guise of a gold investment scheme with the promise of high returns, the federal agency said in a statement on Wednesday.
