Sushant Singh Rajput Death case: Rhea Chakraborty questioned by NCB

Sushant Singh Rajput's family lawyer Vikas Singh on Monday said actress Rhea Chakraborty's complaint is a ploy to derail ongoing CBI investigation and keep the role of state police alive in the matter. Rhea has filed a complaint in Bandra Police Station accusing Rajput's sister Priyanka Singh and a Delhi-based doctor of forgery and preparing a "fake" prescription of medicines for anxiety.

NCB continued questioning Rhea Chakraborty for the second day today. As the investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput's mysterious death, NCB claims that the officials are not satisfied with Rhea's answers and will confront her with her younger brother Showik Chakraborty, Rajput's house manager Samuel Miranda and his house staffer Dipesh Sawant in order to ascertain their individual roles in this alleged drug racket after it obtained mobile phone chat records and other electronic data that suggested some banned drugs were allegedly procured by these people.
