CBI grills Rhea Chakraborty for 3rd day in Sushant Singh case


Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty was questioned by the CBI’s Special Investigation Team for eight hours on Sunday.

She was asked questions on issues including the medical treatment and medicines administered to Sushant Singh Rajput and mention of drugs in her chats.

Sources said the actress is likely to be questioned again as her answers were “not satisfactory”.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) of India has been questioning Rhea daily since the last three days.

CBI Grills Rhea: How It Went

Rhea, accompanied by brother Showik, arrived at the DRDO guest house around 10:15 am and left at 7 pm, according to the CBI officials.

An official said the CBI questioned Rhea about the expenses made by her from Sushant’s credit card and his medical treatment.

He said the investigators were keen on getting more details on the treatment of Sushant Singh. They wanted to know what medicines were being given to him and for how long he was getting treatment.

But Rhea Chakraborty was reportedly evasive to the questions about his medical treatment and medicines were asked.

She was also not “comfortable” when asked about the problems of Sushant and why she was talking about drugs in her chats, according to the source.

The source said that she was also questioned about the reasons for replacing the personal staff at Sushant Singh’s residence and reportedly keeping the deceased actor away from his family.

The CBI officials also probed Rhea about the financial transactions and plans of investments. But her responses did not satisfy the investigators and they plan to summon her again.

Until now, the CBI has questioned the actress for over 25 hours. She was questioned for over 10 hours on Friday and seven hours on Saturday.

The CBI also grilled her brother separately on Friday and Saturday, besides questioning Sushant’s personal staff Neeraj Singh and Dipesh Sawant, flatmate Siddharth Pithani and others.

The federal agency investigators had arrived in Mumbai along with the forensic team last Thursday, a day after the top court of the country gave the nod for a probe by the CBI.

The team has twice visited the Cooper Hospital, Sushant’s Bandra flat and Waterstone resort. It has also collected all the documents related to the case from the Mumbai Police.

The CBI registered a case on the orders of the Central government that came on a request from the Bihar government.

Sushant’s father KK Singh had filed a case with the Bihar Police against Rhea, her father Indrajit, mother Sandhya, brother Showik, Sushant’s ex-manager Shruti Modi, house manager Samuel Miranda, Pithani and others.
