Sushant’s death on June 14, 2020 is currently probing by three central agencies, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), from several angles. Rhea, on the other hand, came into news when late SSR’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against her and accused her of abetment. The case was transferred to CBI after a fight of jurisdiction between Mumbai and Bihar Police ensued. Later, the NCB arrested Rhea in a drug case related to the SSR case. She was released on bail in October, after a month of being in custody. Actors such as Deepika and Sara were among those questioned by the NCB in connection with the case, while Kangana became tangentially involved in it.
