Consequently, Mr. Singh’s lawyer alleged that someone from Mumbai Police was ‘helping’ Rhea with the case. As per reports, the FIR accuses Rhea of harassing Sushant and siphoning off funds, among other complaints.
According to Indian Express, Sushant Singh Rajput’s father has now filed a caveat with the Supreme Court, ‘seeking permission to be heard’, before passing judgement on the PIL filed by Rhea Chakaroborty.
Reportedly, Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-girlfriend, actor Ankita Lokhande, has also recorded her statement with the police and shared screenshots of her conversation with the actor that corroborate the claims that Sushant was harassed by Rhea.
The Bihar Police has already interrogated his family, wherein Sushant’s sister also shared that she had visited him almost a week before his death, because Rhea and he were involved in a fight.
As of now, a PIL seeking transfer of the case to CBI has been rejected by the Supreme Court. No judgement has been passed on the petition filed by Rhea Chakraborty.
