MUMBAI: A team of Mumbai police reached the residence of actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is accused of abetting actor Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, in Santacruz here on Thursday and took her father along for a questioning by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), an official said.

The police team reached Chakrabortys house as per the request made by the ED, the official said.

"The ED requested the Mumbai police to reach their house and escort Rhea's father Indrajit out as it wants to question him," the police official said.

"Accordingly, some police personnel reached their residence in the afternoon and took her father along for a questioning by the central agency," he added.

However, he did not specify whether her father was taken to the ED office in south Mumbai or some other location.
