Sushant Singh Rajput case is now under a CBI probe, and one of the prime suspects, Rhea Chakraborty was grilled by The Enforcement Directorate (ED) yesterday. A source requesting secret identity revealed what went on for more than eight hours where Rhea was seeming ‘evasive.’
Sushant Singh Rajput case: ED asks Rhea Chakraborty about finances
Rhea Chakraborty was bought into questioning along with her brother, Showik, her CA Ritesh Shah and her former manager Shruti Modi. The main focus of ED’s questioning to Rhea Chakraborty revolved around money laundering.
She was asked over 20 questions about the transactions she had with Sushant Singh Rajput, her various assets and stakeholders. She was further asked to supplement information on her mode of income, bank details and other account details. Throughout this investigation, she claimed to be innocent and maintained an evasive stance. She was also asked to give out ITR details to which she responded saying that it will be communicated later via her legal team. Since, Sushant’s father accused her of taking a lot of money from Sushant Singh Rajput’s Kotak Mahindra, the ED also asked her to present documents of all these transactions.
In order to get every required information for Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, ED asked her to further give out details about the two companies that she, her brother and Sushant are stakeholders of. She replied saying that she is the director of ‘Vividrage Rhealityx’ and her brother is the director of ‘Front India For World.’
From money, the line of questioning then shifted to her personal relations with Sushant. ED asked Rhea Chakraborty about how she met him, how long they’ve known each other and the nature of their relationship.
The ED has identified a mismatch between her stated income and the expenditure. Her Khar property is also under probe. She states that her income is around fourteen lakhs but the investments are relatively higher. Now the ED has asked Rhea and Sushant’s flatmate, Siddharth Pithani to appear for questioning today. In fact, they are being questioned as we speak. They’re both at the ED’s office
Stay tuned for more updates on the case that has much more to it than meets the eyes.
