The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Ranbir Kapoor to understand the source of the funds he received for promoting a betting app called Mahadev. He is not summoned as an accused but as a key witness that can help ED get some insights into the functioning of the betting business. His cooperation could reveal the intention of those who promoted this particular app.

The Mahadev app allowed people to gamble on various online games, which were run by individuals based in Dubai, where gambling is legal but against Indian laws. In its investigation pertaining to Bollywood celebrities linked with events related to operators of the said app, the ED has been examining many bigwigs, including Shraddha Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, and Sonakshi Sinha.

These celebrities are said to have gotten huge amounts of money instead of their presence at a wedding and a company success party. The funds are considered gains from illegal activities, and so the respective celebrities will be liable.

The ED has zoomed in on various Bollywood stars over the Mahadev money-laundering case, but Ranbir Kapoor is pivotal in decoding all the financial sources linked with app promotion. His statement will disclose all details pertaining to this scam.

The ED is all set to probe the activities of the app, which allows poker, card games, badminton, tennis, football, and cricket betting. The Dubai operators are suspected of their involvement in this illegal betting.

Summons to Ranbir Kapoor is a great headway in the Mahadev money-laundering case, as only with his cooperation will they be able to find out about various financial transactions conducted during that time.
