On Monday, Rhea Chakraborty appeared before Enforcement Directorate Office for another round of questioning along with her father Indrajit Chakraborty.
Notably, the previous questioning with ED went on for nearly eight hours. While her brother Showik Chakraborty was released by ED after 18 hours of questioning about money laundering case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on Saturday.
ED office has questioned Sushant’s friend Siddharth Pithani along with Rhea’s manager.
Rhea has filed a petition in Supreme Court to stop the CBI investigation and transfer it back to the Mumbai police. A hearing has been set for August 11 in this matter.
After Sushant’s father filed a complaint against Rhea in Bihar on July 28, Bihar police kept demanding CBI probe in this case. Meanwhile, ED has also registered a case against six accused including Rhea.
Meanwhile, Rhea shared the screenshots of WhatsApp messages where Sushant expressed concern about his sister Priyanka Singh’s behavior towards her. This has lead to a massive controversy on the internet.
In a WhatsApp screenshot shared by Rhea Chakraborty, she said Sushant Singh Rajput wrote to her about his sister: “(To Priyanka) You do this, after the shameful act, making this a coverup to attract attention playing a victim card to the most non-negotiable act of molestation under alcohol, well my dear sister, there is our mother and there is the god that my mother stood for taught me things, and you have committed a crime according to that. If you’re blinded by your ego, God bless you because I’m not afraid and I will continue doing what I’ve done till now in bringing out the necessary changes in the world. Let the god and nature decide what ‘act’ is right now.”
She also shared a screenshot where Sushant wrote to her itself, “My sister is now manipulating Sid bhai, playing a victim card trying to divert this entire thing (that you and I are letting go) into me physically punishing her for the act. It’s such a severe disappointment.”
Whereas Sushant’s other Sister, Shweta Singh Kirti denied the allegations by Rhea about Sushant and Priyanka were not on good terms. She even shared footage of an interview where Sushant is saying that he is closest to Priyanka.
“I’m close to everybody, but one of my sisters is very close to me because she gets me. The kinds of things we think are very similar,” said Sushant.
In an interview with the website Pinkvilla, Vikas Singh, the family lawyer of Sushant said that Rhea had accused Priyanka Singh of molesting her which lead to friction between Sushant and his sister.
“He realized his mistake that in a short span of few days Rhea had played a mind game to separate two siblings who were inseparable and happened to be each other’s strongest emotional support,” the lawyer had stated.
