Indian star summoned in money-laundering probe

As part of a continuing investigation into allegations that major Indian crime figures had laundered money through film producers in Bollywood, film star Salman Khan was questioned by authorities in Mumbai Wednesday, presumably about the payments he received for appearing in the film Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, which police say was financed by an Indian crime lord now living in Pakistan. Bharat Shah, a diamond merchant who says that he alone financed the film, and Nasim Rizvi, the producer, have remained in custody since their arrests last month after police recorded telephone conversations between them and Karachi-based Indian mob figure, Nasim Rizvi.
