The Mumbai police Friday filed a chargesheet in the money siphoning case in which actor Raveena Tandon’s husband Anil Thadani was a victim.

The over 632-page chargesheet against alleged mastermind Muzammil Tazdar and eight of his accomplices contains details about nearly 40 accounts that Tazdar allegedly opened using forged documents.

In April this year,the police had received a complaint from Thadani,saying Rs 12.5 lakh had been transferred from his account to an account in the name of one Sumit Gupta.

Investigations revealed the money had been transferred using a cheque from Thadani’s chequebook,which had gone missing from his office. It was also found that Sumit Gupta was one of the many aliases used by Tazdar.
