Rhea Chakraborty, in her statement to the Enforcement Directorate (ED), said that she has never siphoned off any money from Sushant Singh Rajput and that she paid for everything from her own income. Rhea recorded her statement with the ED for over eight hours regarding allegations of embezzling Sushant Singh Rajput's funds, levelled against her by the late actor's father KK Singh. Rhea categorically denied all charges. KK Singh had accused Rhea of siphoning off Rs 15 crore from Rajput's account.
Regarding three of Rajput's companies she partners in, she said that Rs 1 lakh was the paid-up capital, which was shared by the three of them (Sushant Singh Rajput, Rhea and Rhea's brother Showik Chakraborty), and apart from that, she hasn't spent any more on the company.
The ED was also looking into two properties owned by Rhea and her family. Regarding the Khar (East) flat that is in her name, Rhea said she took a housing loan for Rs 60 lakh and the rest of the amount, around Rs 25 lakh, have been paid through her own income.
