The central intelligence agency is likely to quiz Chakraborty on matters related to Rajput’s finances, his health and the alleged drug use.
The CBI is currently examining the statement of her brother Showik Chakraborty after he was grilled by the agency for over 14 hours at the DRDO guest house in Mumbai on Thursday.
Earlier on Thursday, Chakraborty had claimed that her life was under threat and had asked the Mumbai Police for protection. On the same day, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) became the third central agency to join the probe into the late actor’s death to investigate her alleged links to banned drugs.
So far, the ED (Enforcement Directorate) has grilled the ‘Jalebi’ actress twice, following an FIR registered by Rajput’s father KK Singh at the Patna police station on July 25. Her father Indrajit, mother Sandhya, brother Showik, Rajput’s manager Samuel Miranda and Shruti Modi, and unknown persons have also been named in the Bihar Police FIR, and accused of cheating and abetting the actor’s suicide.
On August 19, the Supreme Court had ordered a CBI probe and dismissed Chakraborty’s plea seeking transfer of the FIR from Patna to Mumbai. The CBI team had arrived in Mumbai on August 20, and has since questioned Rajput’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani, cook Neeraj Singh and caretaker Dipesh Sawant.
