Guwahati: Actor Sushant Singh Rajput's live-in partner Rhea Chakraborty today arrived at the Enforcement Directorate office in Mumbai for questioning after her request to put it off was rejected by the agency.
Rhea, citing an ongoing Supreme Court hearing on her petition, had asked for her questioning to be deferred.
Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer Satish Maneshinde said that his client 'is a law-abiding citizen.' He added that she has appeared in the ED at the appointed time and date as the Enforcement Directorate has informed the media that the request to postpone the attendance has been rejected.
According to reports, Rhea will be quizzed over her purchase of 2 plush flats in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
It needs mention here that Sushant Singh Rajput's family has held Rhea Chakraborty culpable for the actor's death. Sushant's family has also alleged that Rhea has siphoned money from Sushant's bank accounts and "mentally harassed" him.
According to reports, Sushant Singh Rajput's friend Siddharth Pithani and Rhea Chakraborty's former manager Shruti Modi have also been summoned by the agency.
The ED wants to question Rhea Chakraborty in a money laundering case it has filed over what it calls "suspicious transactions" worth Rs 15 crore.
The agency, that investigates financial crimes, has also taken note of an FIR filed by Bihar police based on a complaint by Sushant's father.
The agency took note of a First Information Report or FIR by Bihar Police based on a complaint by Sushant Singh Rajput's family.
Meanwhile, sources in the ED have claimed that money from 2 of Sushant's accounts was transferred to Rhea; however, it is nowhere close to Rs. 15 crores.
At the same time, the apex court is hearing Sushant's Chakraborty's petition to transfer the Bihar case to Maharashtra. The Mumbai Police has questioned over 50 people on allegations that the actor was suffering from depression. However, Sushant's family is said to be strongly opposed to the theory that Sushant was suffering from psychological issues.
On Wednesday, the Centre handed over the Bihar Police case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) following demands from politicians and Sushant's family.
