The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday questioned Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty for the first time in connection with the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Accompanied by her father, Rhea, 28, reached the DRDO-IAF guest house in the suburbs after the Supreme Court transferred the case to the CBI and it launched its probe on August 6.
Among other things, the CBI team is likely to get her version of Sushant’s mental condition; their Europe trip on which she has made several claims of his health, etc.; corroborate her statements with those given by the others questioned so far in the case, including her brother Showik.
This comes a day after Sushant’s father Krishna Kishore Singh made the sensational allegation that she had administered poison to kill his son, and demanded her arrest.
Earlier, Sushant’s kin have blamed the Rhea and her family for his death and allegedly swindling off Rs 15 crore from his bank account, but Rhea has denied all the accusations.
34-year-old Sushant was found dead in his apartment building in Mumbai’s Bandra West on June 14, sparking a furore in Bollywood and political circles with multiple agencies entering the fray.
