Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case LIVE Updates: Rhea Chakraborty to appear before CBI again today

CBI probes Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case:

Suicide or murder? The entire nation is looking out for an answer to this question. With CBI probing this high-profile case, not just actor's fans but his friends and family are hopeful that the lost star will soon get justice. The prime suspect Rhea Chakraborty is on the radar of not just CBI but other agencies including Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) as well. The case which began as abetment to suicide took a completely new side when the involvement of banned drugs came to light through the recovered WhatsApp chats. In the wake of the investigation, not just Rhea but her brother Showik Chakraborty, Siddharth Pithani, cook Neeraj Singh, domestic assistant Keshav, manager Samuel Miranda and accountant Rajat Mewati are also being quizzed. The 'Jalebi' actress has been sent a summon and will have to appear before CBI on Sunday as well.

The CBI's Special Investigation Team on Saturday questioned Rhea Chakraborty for over seven hours in connection with the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Rhea, who arrived at the DRDO guesthouse around 1.30 p.m., was quizzed by CBI's Superintendent of Police Nupur Prasad, and left around 8.20 p.m. with a Mumbai Police escort. On Friday, she was questioned by CBI for over 10 hours. According to CBI sources, Rhea was questioned about the claim that she used to splurge on shopping using Sushant's credit card according to the statement of Sushant's flatmate Siddharth Pithani. She was also questioned about the details of Sushant's treatment, why he used to stay at Waterstone resort and what he discussed about his dream project.

Meanwhile, Sushant's fans and her sister Shweta Singh Kirti are leaving no stone unturned in asking for justice. A lot of online protests and prayers are going on and keeping up the spirits once again, Shweta shared several posts on Instagram. Taking to the photo-sharing application, she wrote, "Let’s all come together again to PRAY to the Divine Mother, Devi Shakti to destroy the evil and establish Ram Raj again, where truth runs Supreme! Let the force be with us! Sunday 8 Am (IST) #GlobalPrayersForSSR #Warriors4SSR #GodIsWithUs #JusticeforSushantSingRajput."

Meanwhile, NCB summoned Gaurav Arya, and ED quizzed Jaya Saha who in her statement said that she never supplied CBD oil to Sushant Singh Rajput or Rhea Chakraborty. "Sushant had contacted and informed me that he suffered from depression. I suggested him to take the CBD oil with tea and coffee for relaxation." Saha told the ED that the oil she suggested was completely legal and easily available on shopping portals. She added, "I knew about the oil as I also suffered from depression and used the oil. It helped me calming my mind and relax. It controlled my anxiety disorders," said Jaya.

The CBI team arrived in Mumbai last Thursday, a day after the Supreme Court gave its nod for the federal agency's probe and has twice visited the Bandra flat, where the actor was found dead on June 14. The CBI has also visited Cooper Hospital twice and took the details of Sushant's autopsy, as well as the Waterstone resort where the actor had spent two months.

The CBI registered a case on August 6 on the order of the Central government after a request from the Bihar government after a complaint was filed by Sushant's father K.K.Singh.

    Sushant Singh Rajput's brother-in-law slams Rhea

    Vishal Kirti, brother-in-law of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, has slammed actress Rhea Chakraborty saying her recent interview was a failed attempt to change the narrative of the ongoing case.

    Vishal, who is married to Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti, has written a long blog post defending the late actor's family, and coming down on Sushant's girlfriend Rhea for claims that the actor took drugs and had mental health issues.

    Without mentioning Rhea's name in the blog post, Vishal opened up about the
    "infamous interviews of the prime suspect who is currently under investigation by three central agencies -- ED, CBI and NCB".

    He pointed out how "mental health is being used by the accused as a cover-up for a crime".

    "First, a big disclosure has been made by sources in CBI to an honest media house that moments before Sushant's reported time of death, he was looking at properties in Himachal, Kerala and Coorg on his search engine. Mumbai Police mislead the entire country with a lie that he was searching for terms like 'painless death' before the reported time of death, according to the channel," he wrote.

    He feels this has been such a "massive cover-up by the Mumbai police that now is the right time to set the record straight. I am a champion of mental health initiatives and have read scores of books on different aspects of mental health, including looking into DSM-5. But in this case, mental health is being used by the accused as a cover-up for a crime. Whether it's a murder or an Abetment to Suicide case, why was the Mumbai police misleading the public? This is how I am recommending people to look at this case while the investigation is ongoing. If it was a suicide, it was induced by criminal forces (whether it's unnecessary prescription drugs (or illegal drugs), blackmail or 'real' death threats, we will find out soon) and if it's a murder, then it's self-explanatory".

    Kriti Sanon shares cryptic post

    Taking to Instagram she wrote, "THINK , BELIEVE , MANIFEST. I believe in energy. The thoughts you think & the words you speak determine what you receive.. If you let out negativity and frustration, it might calm you for that moment, but you’d never eventually be at peace.. In other words, you can’t throw s**t all around and wonder why your life stinks..So think positive and be kind because the energy you emit will bounce back at you ultimately. Make sure you emit what you would like to receive. Some call it the law of attraction. Some call it Karma. #yourecievewhatyouputout #spreadlove #MyMantra #audiobook."
