Manna Dey's daughter Sumita has alleged that Rs. 30 lakh and valuables have been siphoned off from a joint bank account and a locker the singer had with his nephew. Sumita has filed a complaint with the police regarding the same.
    
Last week the Girish Park police in Kolkata received a letter from Sumita accusing the singer's nephew, police sources said on Monday.
    
According to the letter sent by post from Bengaluru, where Dey resided with his daughter and her husband, the joint account with the nephew was for the renovation of the singer's ancestral house in Kolkata, which he seldom visited due to ill health.
    
The money was taken out without the knowledge of Dey or his family members, the letter stated.
    
"We have started an investigation. Although a joint account holder can operate the account, we are verifying all aspects. We have not arrested anybody so far," DC (central) DP Singh said.
