Following the sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, his alleged girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty has been one of the prime suspects in the case. The Sonchiriya actor died of suicide on June 14, 2020, and was reportedly battling mental issues for the past couple of months.
It was a couple of days ago that the late actor’s father K.K Singh filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and five others for abetment to suicide and fraud in Patna. Following the same, Bihar Police began their independent investigation in the case.
Later the Jalebi actress moved to the Supreme Court, demanding to transfer the plea registered against her by the Bihar Police to Mumbai Police, as the incident happened in their jurisdiction. Rhea also told the Supreme Court that she has been wrongly accused in the FIR lodged against her by K.K Singh.
Meanwhile, as per the latest update, K.K Singh has reportedly informed the Supreme Court in a counter-affidavit that Rhea has already begun to influence the key witnesses associated with the late actor’s case and has also taken a step back on the CBI probe.
Singh said the mail on which Rhea relied raises a question as to whether the email was sent to Mumbai Police by Siddharth Pithani or someone else. He also raised the question of why was the same shared by the potential witness with Rhea.
The affidavit filed through advocate Nitin Saluja reads, “Nevertheless, the email is sent after the registration of the FIR and one day before the filing of the present transfer petition and thus the said email seems to be procured by the Petitioner (Rhea) from the potential witness, who seems to be already under her influence.”
K.K Singh also questioned that Rhea too wanted a CBI inquiry in the case before then why is she not agreeing to it now. It was a while back, Rhea requested Union Home Minister Amit Shah for a CBI inquiry via her social media.
K.K Singh asserted that Rhea (Petitioner) is bound by her own words that even she wanted a CBI investigation to now taking a U-Turn from the same. The Supreme Court is to hear Rhea’s transfer plea on August 11.
Well, all of it has added more twist to the already complex case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden tragic death.
