The Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned Jaya Saha to the ED office on 24 August to inquire into the Sushant suicide case in connection with the money laundering probe, Jaya Saha was a talent manager at the Kwann Talent Agency and advisor to Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
A senior ED official told a news agency that Saha had been questioned earlier by the Financial Investigation Agency and was asked to appear again in this context. He further said that the financial probe agency wants to interrogate Saha about the drug angle, which surfaced after Saha leaked a WhatsApp chat conversation with Rhea.
The ED has also sought the help of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) to investigate the drug. According to ED sources, Riya and Saha were in discussion in WhatsApp chats about ‘hard drugs’ and ‘MDMA’ for the last few days. The ED has summoned Saha after the same WhatsApp conversation leaked between Riya and Saha, and has already seized all the phones and electronic devices of the actress while investigating the money laundering allegations against Riya and others.
Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti has described Riya Chakraborty’s alleged drug chat as a criminal offense and wants to take action against the actress. However, Riya’s lawyer Maneshinde has denied the drug angle in a statement claiming that Riya has never consumed drugs in her life and is ready for any blood tests.
The ED has recorded statements by Riya, her father Indrajit, her brother Shovik, her manager Shruti Modi and many others.
