Rhea Chakraborty on Friday arrived at DRDO guest house, where the CBI team investigating Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, is staying

Amid startling revelations in her media interview, Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty on Friday appeared before the Central Bureau of Investigation for the first time in the ongoing probe into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Accompanied by her father, Rhea, 28, reached the DRDO-IAF guest house in the suburbs after the Supreme Court transferred the case to the CBI and it launched its probe on August 6.

Among other things, the CBI team is likely to get her version of Sushant's mental condition; their Europe trip on which she has made several claims of his health, etc.; corroborate her statements with those given by the others questioned so far in the case, including her brother Showik.

This comes a day after Sushant's father Krishna Kishore Singh made the sensational allegation that she had administered poison to kill his son, and demanded her arrest.

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, sparking a furore in Bollywood and political circles with multiple agencies entering the fray.

Initially, the Mumbai Police which registered an accidental death report, had interrogated Rhea, followed by the Enforcement Directorate and now the CBI, with the Narcotics Control Bureau waiting in the queue to probe the drugs angle.

In her TV interviews, Rhea has declared: "I have nothing to fear... I will cooperate with all the agencies."

Earlier, Rhea's brother Showik was grilled by the CBI, besides his flatmate Siddharth Pithani, house manager Samuel Miranda, and cook Neeraj Singh.

I asked her how are you affording this lawyer whose per day charges are in lakhs and she said that he has come himself and offered his services totally for free. He has mentioned nothing about the fees. These kind of people will never offer their services for free. So, I am sure there is definitely someone who is paying for his daily professional fees.”

'CBI should arrest Rhea Chakraborty immediately': JDU leader Sanjay Singh

Janata Dal (United) leader Sanjay Singh on Friday said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) should immediately arrest Rhea Chakraborty in the death case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

While speaking to ANI, the JDU leader accused actress Chakraborty of being involved in the death of Rajput and said not only should CBI arrest her, the investigating team should also use "third-degree measures" on her in order to get her confession.

"I've been watching Rhea's interviews on TV since yesterday. For saving herself, she is trying to convey that she is innocent and has no part in the suicide or murder of later actor Sushant Singh Rajput, but her face looks cunning just like a criminal. She looks like the leader of a criminal gang and her face reflects that she is involved in the matter of Rajput's suicide. She should be arrested immediately by CBI," said Singh.

"If CBI uses third degree, she'll confess everything. She is a total criminal and once she confesses, names of big personalities will come up. She has relations with drug dealers and who all are the drug mafia around ... everything will be disclosed," he added.
