And finally, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has started interrogating accused Rhea Chakraborty in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. Both Rhea Chakraborty and her brother, co-accused in the case, have reached DRDO’s guest house.
The family of deceased actor Sushant Singh Rajput had alleged that Rhea Chakraborty and her family mentally harassed Sushant Singh and robbed him of Rs 15 crore.
Eventually, on Thursday, August 27, in her interview with TV journalists, Rhea Chakraborty said she is not afraid of facing CBI as she has not done any wrong to Sushant Singh Rajput. On Friday, August 28, CBI called Rhea Chakraborty for questioning.
CBI’s SP Nupur Prasad is questioning Rhea Chakraborty. Another team of CBI is questioning Showik Chakraborty. CBI had interrogated Showik on Thursday, August 27 for 14 hours until midnight.
The CBI began its probe after the Supreme Court formally transferred the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case from Mumbai Police to CBI on August 19. CBI made the FIR filed with Bihar Police as its base for the investigation. Sushant’s family had filed FIR with the Bihar Police where it named Rhea Chakraborty, her parents, and brother Showik as the prime accused.
Along with CBI, the Enforcement Directorate is also investigating the matter. The ED is investigating the money laundering angle in this case. It questioned Rhea’s father Indrajit Chakraborty on Thursday, August 27. Earlier, it had questioned Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty as well.
Apparently, it was ED only that retrieved the deleted WhatsApp messages from Rhea’s mobile that revealed the angle of drugs in the matter. ED shared the details with CBI which, later requested the Narcotics Control Bureau to investigate the drug dealing angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
