After her plea to postpone the questioning was rejected by the Enforcement Directorate, actor Rhea Chakraborty appeared before the agency in Mumbai, which is probing her in the money laundering case lodged against her.
A money laundering case had been lodged against her after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea had requested for the recording of her statement to be postponed till the Supreme Court Hearing. However, the ED refused to entertain her request.
“Rhea Chakraborty is a law abiding citizen. In view of the fact that ED has informed the media that the request to postpone the attendance is rejected, she has appeared in the ED at the appointed time and date,” said Satish Maneshinde, Rhea’s lawyer in a statement.
Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty and her former manager Shruti Modi’s statements will also be recorded by the ED.
Rhea has been accused by her late boyfriend Sushant’s family and an FIR has been filed by the CBI against her.
Sushant had died of suicide on June 14 in his residence in Mumbai.4
