Actress Rhea Chakraborty arrived at the Enforcement Directorate office on Friday after her request to put off the questioning in Sushant Singh Rajput’s case was rejected by the agency.

Rhea arrived at the ED office along with her brother Showik Chakraborty at 11.50 am for questioning. The ED will record her statement under the Prevention of the Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002.

It will question her about financial dealings and investment into properties. The ED will also question her about the financial transactions from the late actor's bank account in last one year.

In the morning, her lawyers had said that the actress has requested a postponement of recording her statement till the Supreme Court hearing. The Supreme Court is expected to hear next week Rhea's plea seeking transfer of the Bihar Police probe to Mumbai Police.

Rhea's name figures in FIRs lodged by both the Patna Police and the CBI. The investigation into the June 14 death of the 34-year-old actor has been handed over to the CBI and also the ECIR of the Enforcement Directorate, after much wrangling between the Mumbai Police and Sushant's home state police.

The ED named Rhea and her family members in the case on the basis of the FIR filed by the Bihar Police.

The ED has also sought details of the financial transactions of the firm -- Vividrage Rhealityx, in which Rhea is a director; and Front India For World, in which her brother Showik Chakraborty is a director.
