Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case is being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). On Thursday, Sushant’s former girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik Chakraborty was questioned for the first time by CBI. And, Sushant’s flat-mate Siddharth Pithani was called for the seventh consecutive day for questioning.
Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty released a video where she showed how her family’s movement has been restricted by the constant presence of mediapersons at her doorstep. She said that she and her family are ready to cooperate with the investigation agencies but urged the Mumbai police to provide them protection. She wrote on Instagram, “There is a threat to my life and my family’s life.”
Apart from the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is probing a money-laundering angle into Sushant’s death, now the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has also registered an FIR against Rhea and some others under several sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.
The CBI took over the case from the Mumbai Police after the Supreme Court judgement in Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea’s plea to transfer the FIR in the case from Patna to Mumbai. Their team also visited Sushant’s flat to reconstruct the sequence of events before he was found dead on June 14.
