Bollywood comedian Rajpal Yadav was questioned by EOW after a probe into Speak Asia scam a multi-level marketing fraud. EOW suggested that two brothers might have partly funded the actor’s yet-to-be released film, authorities said today.
Yadav was quizzed for a minimum of an hour by city police’s Economic Offence Wing (EOW), probing the Rs 1,300 crore fraud on Monday, a policeman stated.
Detectives presume that absconding Speak Asia official Ram Niwas Pal and his brother Ram Sumrin Pal, presumably invested Rs 2.5 crore of the fraud cash in the small-budget comedy movie “Jiyo Raja Phantom” starring Yadav.
“Yadav’s statement has actually been recorded as we suspect that the film was funded by Pal brothers, besides additional financiers,” the officer said.
