The actor has been asked by the agency to bring along with him all the relevant documents with regard to the said transaction that was made by the Saradha group to him few years back.

Mithun could not be contacted for his comments. Sources, however, said the statement of Mithun was necessary to corroborate and build a sequence of events in the “interest of investigation”. They said the summons sent to him under money laundering laws do not pertain to any ‘criminal’ intent on the actor’s part per se.

“He has been summoned to appear on June 19 in Kolkata. An amount of few crores from Saradha group accounts have gone to the actor’s account and answers related to this and few others are supposed to be put to him by the ED investigators,” the sources said. They said Mithun was reportedly sent the amount for being the brand ambassador of a media platform floated by the group.
