Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh has filed a police complaint against actress Rhea Chakraborty in Patna. An FIR is registered based on his complaint.
In his police complaint, Singh has accused Rhea of taking money from Sushant. He also accused her of threatening the late actor. Sushant and Rhea were in a relationship for a while before the actor died by suicide on June 14.
The First Information Report (FIR) also names six others including her relatives. A four-member team of Patna Police has just left for Mumbai to probe the case.
This is the first time the family have opened up to the public about their allegations and sources near them say they deliberated whether to wait for the investigation by Mumbai Police.
Interestingly, this development has come weeks after Rhea Chakraborty had called for a CBI investigation into Sushant’s death, tagging Union Home Minister Amit Shah in a post on Instagram.
The police have recorded statements of over 40 people, including film critic Rajeev Masand, director-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, filmmakers Aditya Chopra and Mahesh Bhatt in the investigation.
Among others whose statements were recorded in the case at Bandra police station are Rajput’s cook Neeraj Singh, domestic help Keshav Bachner, manager Deepesh Sawant, creative manager Siddharth Ramnathmurti Pithani, sisters Neetu and Meetu Singh.
Television actor Mahesh Shetty, casting director Mukesh Chhabra, business manager Shruti Modi, PR manager Ankita Tehlani, actor Rhea Chakraborty, two former employees of Yash Raj Films, among others have also recorded their statement.
