The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is currently investigating 17 celebrities, including Bollywood actors, singers, and comedians — Tiger Shroff, Neha Kakkar, Elli AvrRam, Bharti Singh, Bhagyashree, Kriti, Kharbanda, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Krushna Abhishek, Atif Aslam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Ali Asgar, Vishal Dadlani, Raghav Sachar, Manish Paul, Karan Kundrra, Tejasswi Prakash, Akansha Puri, Paras Chhabra and Mahira Sharma for their attendance at a lavish Dubai wedding. This event was allegedly funded by an online betting platform called Mahadev Online Book (MOB) app. The ED is also examining allegations that MOB collaborated with a Pakistan-based associate to launch a betting app. It has been revealed that cash was delivered through hawala channels, and private jets were hired for the wedding.
Assets totaling ₹417 crore ($55.8 million) linked to the platform have been seized and frozen. Some of the celebrities may be summoned as witnesses in the money laundering case against the platform. Additionally, there are allegations that MOB spent ₹200 crore on the wedding, and the agency is tracing the money trail to identify the end-beneficiaries.
The investigation also unveiled that celebrities received hefty fees through dubious transactions for their performances at the wedding. Private jets were used to transport family members from Nagpur to the UAE, and various services like event planning, dancing, and decoration were sourced from Mumbai. The probe further revealed that cash amounting to ₹112 crore was delivered through hawala channels to an events management company, and ₹42 crore was paid in cash for hotel bookings in UAE currency (AED).
The ED has conducted searches in multiple cities, retrieving documents and freezing/seizing proceeds of crime worth ₹417 crore associated with the MOB app. Kolkata-based Vikash Chhaparia was identified as handling hawala-related operations for MOB, and assets worth crores have been frozen as a result of these investigations
