The Enforcement Directorate reportedly filed a money laundering case against Rhea Chakraborty and her family members after late Sushant Singh Rajput's father KK Singh filed an FIR against her in Patna. The FIR reportedly mentioned massive financial transactions done through Sushant Singh Rajput's account, allegedly by Rhea. Following this, ED sent out a summon to Rhea Chakraborty and asked her to appear to record her statement on August 7. However, latest reports suggest that the actress has requested ED to postpone the recording of the statement until the Supreme Court's next hearing.
As per news agency ANI, Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer, Satish Maneshinde said, "Rhea has requested that the recording of her statement be postponed till Supreme Court hearing." Reports further suggest that ED is likely to ask Rhea about the two big property investments done by her.
Soon, reports also emerged that ED has rejected her request for postponement and has asked her to join the probe.

Earlier, it was Sushant Singh Rajput's house manager Samuel Miranda who was interrogated by ED. As per the reports, he was interrogated for almost nine hours. Samuel Miranda was reportedly hired by Rhea Chakraborty to take care of Sushant Singh Rajput's finances and more.
After Sushant's father filed an FIR against her in Patna, Rhea Chakraborty moved to Supreme Court seeking the transfer of the same to Mumbai. In the first hearing, the Supreme Court reportedly denied giving any interim protection to Rhea Chakraborty and even asked the Mumbai Police to put on record the investigation carried out in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case so far. The next hearing is said to take place next week. (Also Read: 'Don't Think Rhea Chakrabory Will Appear Before The ED, Is Scared Of Getting Arrested', Says Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey)
