On Friday, Rhea arrived at the DRDO guest house in Mumbai for questioning by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in Sushant’s death case. This is for the first time that Rhea Chakraborty (28) is being questioned by the Central Agency in the matter.
Her interrogation comes a day after she told the media about the “unbearable mental torture” of being investigated by multiple agencies. Sources said Ms Chakraborty’s statement was recorded by Nupur Prasad, the officer leading the CBI team.
The CBI is investigating allegations by Mr Rajput’s family that she and her family mentally harassed the actor, took money from his accounts and had a possible role in his death in June. Her brother Showik is also being interrogated by the agency.

Accompanied by her brother Showik, Rhea reached the DRDO-IAF guest house in the suburbs at 10:30 am and it is expected that the interrogation will continue till late at night.

In the first round of questioning, CBI is listening to Rhea Chakraborty’s side of the story and is focusing on how her relationship with the late actor began and what all happened in the last one year when they were living together.

Also, CBI is quizzing her about Sushant’s mental condition; their Europe trip on which she has made several claims of his health, etc. Mr Rajput’s cook Neeraj and flatmate Siddharth Pithani are also being questioned by the agency, which took over the entire investigation after a Supreme Court order last week.
Both were questioned separately and checked for inconsistencies in their versions, sources said.The CBI had, sources said, 10 key questions for Ms Chakraborty, a 28-year-old actor who dated Mr Rajput for a year and left his home on June 8, six days before he was found dead.
The questions she was asked are:
1. Who informed her about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death? Where was she?
2. On hearing of the death, did she go to his Bandra home? If not, why, when and where did she see his body?
3. Why did she leave Sushant Singh Rajput’s home on June 8?
4. Did she leave the actor’s home after any fight?
5. After leaving Sushant Singh Rajput’s home, did she have any communication with him between June 9 and 14? If yes, what was it about and if not, why?
6. Did Sushant Singh Rajput try to communicate with her in those days? Did she ignore his calls and messages? If so, why? Why did she block his calls?
7. Did Sushant Singh Rajput try reaching out to any of her family members? What was the communication about?
8. Details of Sushant Singh Rajput’s health issues and the treatment he was taking. Details of doctors, psychiatrists and medication.
9. What was Rhea Chakraborty’s relationship with Sushant Singh Rajput’s family?
10. Why did she ask for a CBI probe into the death? Did she sense foul play?
The CBI will be asking her about her relationship with Sushant; how he was behaving during the Europe trip last year; the alleged drug angle and the financial transactions from his account. Besides the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are also probing the various angles into the case.
According to CBI sources, Rhea Chakraborty revealed that she first met Sushant Singh Rajput in 2013 at Yash Raj Office. She stated that the two actors had the same manager. However, the duo started dating in April 2019 after the actor separated from his Kedarnath co-star Sara Ali Khan. Rhea also said that Sushant fell in love with her when they first met itself.

Rhea Chakraborty did not know any of Sushant’s staff
Rhea Chakraborty told the CBI that she did not know any of Sushant Singh Rajput’s staff beforehand. She said, “I neither hired nor fired the staff. Siddharth Pithani was at Sushant’s house before I came into his life.
Samuel Miranda was hired by Sushant’s sister. Dipesh was already known by the late actor. Keshav and Neeraj were also hired by Sushant. It was Sushant who introduced me to his staff.”\Earlier, Sushant’s kin have blamed the Chakraborty family for his death and allegedly swindling off Rs 15 crore from his bank account, but Rhea has denied all the accusations. Sushant, 34, was found dead in his rental duplex flat in Mont Blanc building in Bandra west on June 14,

Earlier on Thursday, Chakraborty had claimed that her life was under threat and had asked the Mumbai Police for protection. On the same day, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) became the third agency to join the probe into the late actor’s death to investigate her alleged links to banned drugs.
