The Bihar Police on behalf of the Bihar government filed an affidavit on Friday in the Supreme Court, saying that father of Sushant Singh Rajput, KK Singh, has said that Rhea Chakraborty and her family were administering an overdose of medicine to the late actor to “grab” his property.
The affidavit, which was filed by the Superintendent of the Bihar Police, says that Rhea Chakraborty came into contact with the late actor for the sole purpose of usurping his money and later falsely projecting him as a victim of mental illness.
The affidavit also alleged that the transfer petition filed by actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is accused of criminal conspiracy and abetment of suicide in Sushant Singh Rajput death case, is ‘misconceived and not maintainable’.
The Bihar Police also accused the Mumbai Police of being unforthcoming in the investigation into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, claiming that despite their non-cooperation, they had found several leads in the investigation when they had gone to Mumbai to probe the late actor’s death case. They told the Supreme Court that since the death case of Sushant Singh Rajput is a sensitive matter and has inter-state ramifications, they suggested a CBI probe into Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
Earlier today, Rhea Chakraborty had requested the Enforcement Directorate to defer recording of her statement till the Supreme Court’s next hearing. However, the ED passed up her request. Rhea is expected to record her statement to the ED in the money laundering case against her.
