Mithun returns Rs 1.23 crore

Prominent actor and Trinamool Congress MP Mithun Chakraborty returned to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) the money he received from the scam-tainted Saradha Group, just like he had assured around a month ago.

While his lawyers had said earlier that the actor would return the money, and that a demand draft (DD) has been drawn, a draft reached the Central agency on Tuesday.
Sources said Chakraborty issued the demand draft of Rs 1.23 crore, the amount he had received from the Saradha Group after tax deductions, which was paid to the Income-Tax Department.

Sources said he chose June 16 to return the money as it happens to be his birthday.
“The DD has been given to the investigating officer of the Saradha scam case. The Central agency is satisfied with the action of the actor and the statement he recorded regarding his role in the operations of the group,” said an official.
