Sushant Singh Rajput case: ED questions Rhea’s brother for 18 hours – Times of India

MUMBAI: The Enforcement Directorate on Sunday questioned Showik Chakraborty, brother of actor Rhea Chakraborty, for about 18 hours in connection with a money laundering case linked to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

He left the agency’s office here around 6:30am after an overnight questioning session that began around noon on Saturday. Officials said that his statement was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and he was asked about his personal businesses, income, investments and financial dealings with his sister and Rajput. He was questioned by the agency on August 7 as well. On the same day, his sister Rhea was questioned by the agency for the first time for about eight hours.

Rhea and her father Indrajit Chakraborty have been asked to appear before the agency again on Monday.

On Friday, the ED had questioned Indrajit, Rhea’s CA Ritesh Shah and business manager Shruti Modi, who also worked for Rajput.

The ED’s line of questioning, officials said, is revolving around Rhea’s income, investments, business and professional deals, and links. A property located in Khar area and another in Navi Mumbai, both linked to Rhea, are also under the ED’s scanner. Agency sources have said they “want more answers” from Rhea over the alleged mismatch between her income, expenditure and investments. They said while Chakraborty has filed Income Tax returns stating an income of about Rs 14 lakh, the value of her investments is reportedly higher.
