THE SUSHANT SINGH RAJPUT’S FAMILY VS RHEA CHAKRABORTY CASE NOW
Meanwhile, Sushant’s family has relased their WhatsApp chats with the Mumbai Police from February 25, 2020, where they informing the police about the actor’s life being in danger. In the chats, the family had clearly mentioned to the Mumbai Police that Sushant was completely “under Rhea Chakraborty’s control” and that she kept Sushant at a resort near Mumbai airport for three months.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s family advocate Vikas Singh had said, “We had told Bandra Police on February 25 that Sushant is not in a good company and please have a look at him so that no harm happens to him. And that was the time when he was in complete control of Rhea Chakraborty.”
However, in a clarification, Mumbai Police said on August 3 that the WhatsApp messages were sent by Sushant’s brother-in-law OP Singh to the then DCP, Zone 9 of Mumbai Police, were all informal. The Mumbai Police said in their statement, “The then DCP Zone 9 had called Sh OP Singh and requested him that a written complaint is mandatory for any enquiry or action. However, Mr Singh wanted this to be resolved informally, to which the then DCP Zone 9 clearly told him that it was not possible.”
Today, Sushant’s father KK Singh spoke to Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and requested him for a CBI probe in the case. Later, Nitish Kumar recommended a CBI probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde said in a statement, “There cannot be transfer of a case which had no legal basis for Bihar to get involved. At the most it would be a ‘Zero FIR’ and transferable to Mumbai Police. The transfer of a case on which they had no jurisdiction to CBI has no legal sanctity. Having realised that Bihar has no jurisdiction this illegal method has been adopted.”
