Actor Rhea Chakraborty was on Friday questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for the first time since it took over the probe into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
Chakraborty was summoned by the central agency to appear before its probe team on Friday around 10.30am. Chakraborty, Rajput’s girlfriend, left her residence around 10am to reach the DRDO guest house in suburban Santacruz, where the probe team is stationed, news agency PTI reported.
Chakraborty reached the DRDO guesthouse in Mumbai’s Santacruz East area along with her brother Shovik where she will be questioned by the central agency.
Before Chakraborty’s arrival, Rajput’s friend and flatmate Siddharth Pithani and manager Samual Miranda had reached the DRDO guest house to join the investigation.
The CBI team, which is in the city since the last eight days to investigate the case, on Thursday recorded Shovik’s statement for more than eight hours. Chakraborty’s father has also been questioned by several investigators.
The CBI has so far questioned the late actor’s flatmate Pithani, cook Neeraj Singh and domestic help Deepesh Sawant, among others, as part of its probe in the high-profile case.
The Supreme Court last week upheld the transfer of the first information report (FIR), lodged by Rajput’s father in Bihar’s Patna against Rhea Chakraborty and others for allegedly abetting his son’s suicide and misappropriating his money, to the central agency.
Rajput was found dead at his Bandra home on June 14.
