The Enforcement Directorate had summoned Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea to record her statement with regards to two major property investments made by her in Mumbai.
Rhea is being questioned in the matter after Sushant Singh Rajput’s father in his FIR questioned financial irregularities. Sushant’s father had filed a seven-page FIR in Patna, claiming that Rs 15 crore form Sushant’s bank account was transferred into accounts that had nothing to do with him.
Yesterday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took over the probe of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. Bihar police, who had been involved in the matter after the FIR in Patna, has reportedly left for their state.
