Widening its probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday started questioning his chartered accountant Sandeep Sridhar, accountant Rajat Mewati along with his flatmate Siddharth Pithani and cook Neeraj Singh.
Sridhar joined the CBI probe at the DRDO guest house in Santacruz area of Mumbai, where the CBI's SIT team is staying. Sridhar was joined by Mewati, Pithani and Neeraj.
According to a CBI source, the agency will question Sridhar about the financial dealings of Sushant and enquire if there were any financial dealings with his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her family members.
The agency will also question him about the expenses of Sushant and who handled his finances, debit cards, Internet banking and credit cards. It will also try to understand the pattern of Sushant's bank transactions and his fixed deposits. This is for the first time that Sushant's CA has joined the probe. Mewati was questioned by the CBI on Monday too.
Since Thursday the CBI has also questioned Sushant's personal staff Dipesh Sawant on multiple occasions after the team arrived in Mumbai, following the apex court's nod. (IANS)
