After receiving a summons from the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for questioning in the drug case related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput on Sunday morning, Rhea Chakraborty arrived at the agency's office in Mumbai for questioning.

Following this, on Sunday afternoon, Sushant Singh Rajput's sister Mitu Singh was also seen arriving at DRDO guest house in Mumbai. The CBI team investigating the case is currently staying at DRDO guest house.

In a statement, reported by ANI, Rhea's lawyer Satish Maneshinde earlier referred to the situation as a "witch hunt" against the actor.

"Rhea Chakraborty is ready for arrest as this is a witch hunt and if loving some one is a crime she will face the consequences of her love. Being innocent, she has not approached any court for Anticipatory Bail in all the cases foisted by Bihar Police now with CBI , ED and NCB," Maneshinde said in a statement.

On Sunday afternoon, Rhea was seen being escorted by police personnel as she made her way to the agency's office.
