Was Rhea Chakraborty mixing drugs into her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput's coffee deliberately or doing it at the behest of someone, the central investigative agencies are probing.
Purported conversation of Rhea with her close associates have hinted towards either of the possibilities that she was mixing drugs in Sushant's cup of coffee or tea.
The internal documents of Enforcement Directorate (ED), accessed by IANS, states that CBD or Cannabidiol — a chemical compound extracted from Marijuana which is banned over certain concentration — was procured by Rhea "to mix it in the coffee of Sushant Singh Rajput".
The finding has changed the course of the investigation into Sushant's death.
The ED internal note states, "Rhea Chakraborty was indulging in usage and procurement of narcotic substance namely weed (marijuana, cannabis)/CBD etc since 2017."
The probe agencies also found that Rhea's close aide Samuel Miranda, the house manager of the actor, was aware of this use and mixing of drugs into Sushant's food items. Rhea and Samuel are also being probed by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) for illegally obtaining passwords of debit cards of Rajput and spending money for their own purposes.
It was on August 6, after a recommendation by the Bihar government, the CBI had taken over the probe from the Bihar Police on the orders of the central government following an FIR lodged by the deceased's father at Patna's Rajiv Nagar police station.
Although the Mumbai Police had started questioning of a number of people following the mysterious death of the actor, it had not filed any case. (IANS)
