Mumbai: Actress Rhea Chakraborty was questioned by the NCB for around 8 hours on Monday, the second consecutive day of her interrogation, in the drugs case linked to the death of her live-in partner and actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

The 28-year-old arrived at the agency’s office in Ballard Estate around 9:30 am and she left around 6 PM.

Dressed in a pink hooded jacket and carrying a bag, Rhea was escorted by police personnel.

The actor was questioned for about six hours by the agency for the first time in the case on Sunday.

She may be called again for the third such session on Tuesday, officials said.

The agency has said that it wants to question Rhea and confront her with her younger brother Showik Chakraborty (24), Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda (33) and his house staffer Dipesh Sawant to ascertain their roles in this alleged drug racket after it obtained mobile phone chat records and other electronic data that suggested some banned drugs were allegedly procured by these people.

These three men were arrested by the NCB in this case over the last few days.

The officials said the actress was questioned on these lines on Sunday.

She was earlier questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Rhea, in interviews given to multiple TV news channels, has said that she never consumed drugs herself. She had, however, claimed that Rajput used to consume marijuana.

A total of nine people have been arrested till now by the NCB with seven directly linked to this probe, while two were arrested when the investigation was launched under criminal sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

Various angles surrounding the death of the 34-year-old actor are being probed by three federal agencies, including the ED and the CBI.

The NCB probe began after the ED shared with it a report following the cloning of two mobile phones of Rhea.

Rajput was found dead at his flat in the suburban Bandra area on June 14.
