Rhea Chakraborty leaves from DRDO guest house | Sushant Death case UPDATES

Rhea Chakraborty grilled by the CBI for more than 10 hours today, summoned again in connection with actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death

Rhea Chakraborty has been summoned again by the CBI after questioning today. She reached DRDO office for interrogation along with her brother Showik in the morning. Rhea and lawyer prepared the docket including medical files, chats file and accounts details. On Thursday, Showik Chakraborty was questioned for 14 hours by the CBI. Rhea Chakraborty's deleted WhatsApp chat has put the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in action. The team began their investigation on Thursday and reached Goa in search of Gaurav Arya, who was in contact with Sushant Singh Rajput's girlfriend Rhea in connection to buying and selling drugs. The move came after NCB filed an FIR against the actress and two others. On the other hand, Rhea Chakraborty's claims that Sushant's family didn't love him and he hadn't met his father in five years received a sharp reply from Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti.

In a series of tweets, Shweta slammed Rhea for tarnishing her 'pure brother's image on national television. She tweeted, "You have guts to come on National Media and tarnish the image of my pure brother after his death!! You think God is not watching for what you have done! I believe in God and I have faith, now I really want to see what he will do to you. #Godiswithus #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput" In a separate tweet, Shweta demanded that Rhea should be arrested for allegedly drugging Sushant without his consent and manipulating his mind.

On Friday, CBI continues to probe the death case. Sushant's house manager Samuel Miranda reached the DRDO guesthouse. On the other hand, CBI also summoned Rhea Chakraborty to appear for questioning. The actress with her brother Showik reached the guesthouse for interrogation. CBI will seek details about her relationship with Sushant as well as their Europe trip.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, CBI questioned Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik at the DRDO guesthouse where they have been staying. Also, The ED summoned the actress' father Indrajit for questioning.  Indrajit's interrogation was carried at Axis Bank for five hours. Transaction details were investigated inside the bank and lockers were checked. Inderjit Chakraborty was spotted with a bag in his hand as he exited the bank.

Sushant was found dead in his Bandra flat on June 14. While the CBI is investigating the death, on Thursday morning Sushant's father KK Singh issued a video stating the late actor's girlfriend, actress Rhea Chakraborty, was giving poison to his son for a long time and was his murderer. In the 15-second video, Singh, speaking in Hindi, demanded the CBI arrest Rhea and her associates.

Till now, the CBI has grilled Siddharth Pithani, cook Neeraj, Showik Chakraborty, Dipesh Sawant, his CA Sandeep Shridhar, accountant Rajat Mewati, doctors at Cooper hospital and the Mumbai Police personnel present on duty on June 14.

    Actor's ex-assistant Sabir Ahmed: If Sir consumed drugs, I'd have known

    "I worked with Sushant Sir off and on, taking breaks in between. My last stint with him was from December 2018 to around January or February 2019. I took leave in February. I worked as his personal assistant when he was promoting ‘Sonchiriya' and shooting for ‘Dil Bechara'. I used to assist him on photoshoots, film promotions and shooting. At that time I stayed with Sir in his 16th floor apartment. If Sir consumed drugs at the time I worked with him, I would surely have known. I was there with him 24X7. I am hearing so many names of drugs now -- ML or MD, or whatever it is. If he was consuming drugs at that time, I would have surely known these names. I am shocked to hear about these drugs. However, I am talking about only the time I used to work with him. I don't know what happened after I was fired."
