Her father, Indrajit Chakraborty, was also summoned yesterday by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is probing a money laundering case connected to Sushant's death.
The CBI, which started investigating this case after a Supreme Court order, has thus far questioned two of Sushant's staff members and his flatmate Siddharth Pithani.

Sushant's death case, earlier being probed by Mumbai Police, changed course after the actor's family filed an FIR in Patna against Rhea.

In a recent television interview, she maintained Sushant was depressed and was taking medication. She added she is unsure of what led to his death.

On Wednesday, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) registered a case against Rhea and a few others, after chat records from her phone hinted at alleged drug abuse in this case. However, Rhea said she has never taken drugs.
