As mentioned in on Times Now, it is reported that during her eight hours of questioning, Rhea did not really cooperate with the agency and kept reiterating vague answers. When SSR’s family’s lawyer Vikas Singh was asked by the channel to comment on the same, he mentioned that if Rhea is not cooperating in the questioning process, she might be summoned once again or she can also get arrested by the ED. “Now that she has decided to finally come forward in the interrogation, if she answers questions properly then probably she may be allowed to go. If she evades answers today, then she can also be arrested,” Singh told Times Now.
