New Delhi August 10th
Rhea Chakraborty has reached the Enforcement Directorate’s office in Mumbai again today (August 10) with her family members. Earlier, she was grilled for eight-and-a-half hours by the ED on Friday (August 7) in a money laundering case registered against her after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Her brother, Showik Chakraborty, and parents accompanied the actress to the agency office. On Saturday, Showik was questioned for 18 hours in connection with the case. Indrajit Chakraborty, Rhea’s father will also be questioned.
On Friday, Rhea Chakraborty requested the ED to postpone her questioning till the Supreme Court’s next hearing. However, as the probe agency denied her request Rhea came to record her statements with her family members. Her brother will be questioned for the third time today. The actress’s business manager Shruti Modi will also be questioned today.
According to sources, Rhea will be asked about details of the investment in last 2 years linked to her. ED believes that some investments of her are not known to investigative agencies. The sources add that Rhea has been asked to provide supporting documents regarding the expenses she incurred for which money was transferred from Sushant’s account.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s friend Siddharth Pithani is expected to join Enforcement Directorate (ED) probe today. Siddharth was also Sushant’s manager and used to live with him for some time. The ED got involved in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case after the late actor’s father, KK Singh, lodged an FIR at Rajiv Nagar Police Station in Patna in July. In his FIR, he alleged that Rhea and her family pocketed Rs 15 crore from the late actor’s account, harassed him and pushed him to kill himself.
After speaking to KK Singh, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar recommended a CBI probe into the case. The Centre on August 5 told the Supreme Court that the case has been transferred to the CBI. The agency, however, will begin investigation after the SC’s next hearing, which will be held on Tuesday (August 11).
