Sushant death case: Bihar police records statement of Rhea Chakraborty

Mumbai: A day after seeking probe details in Sushant Singh Rajput suicide from Mumbai police, the Bihar police recorded statement of actress Rhea Chakraborty.

The police are probing the cheating and abetment to suicide angles apart from business ties of Sushant with her family leading to his suicide.

The Bihar police is probing the case filed with them, the only criminal case in connection with the suicide, based on the allegations by his father. The police are looking into the alleged swindling of funds by Rhea, to the tune of Rs 17 crore, from Sushant's account and allegedly cheating him.

The deceased actor's father has also alleged that her family had business relations with Sushant and the latter was meted out to severe harassment by Rhea herself.

 

Amidst growing demand for the investigation to be shifted to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the state home minister Anil Deshmukh reiterated that Mumbai police is capable of investigating the incident and that the probe will not be transferred to any other agency.

Meanwhile, Rhea has approached the Supreme Court and her legal counsel Satish Maneshinde has sought for transfer of the case's probe from Bihar police to Mumbai police.

The application to the apex court also sought for a pause on probe by the Bihar police.
