The CBI will be asking her about her relationship with her boyfriend and late actor Sushant Singh Rajput – like how he was behaving during the much-talked-about Europe trip last year. The agency will ask questions based on the alleged drug angle and the financial transactions from his account.
Rhea was in a live-in relationship with Sushant. On June 8, a few days before his death, she left the late actor’s flat. Sushant was found hanging at his Mumbai flat on June 14.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani, house manager Samuel Miranda, personal staff Neeraj Singh have also been questioned.
The CBI started the investigation in the case after August 19, when the Supreme Court allowed them. The CBI’S SIT started its investigation the next day. The agency is currently probing the case in Mumbai. Several people pivotal to the case have been grilled by the CBI.
Besides the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are also probing the various angles into the case. The ED registered a case of money laundering against Rhea and others on July 31, while the NCB registered a case on Wednesday on the request of the financial probe agency.
