According to sources, Rhea Chakraborty used Sushant Singh Rajput's credit cards on a Europe tour, sacked one of his bodyguards and even has stakes in the late Bollywood actor's company.
In a major development in the Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide case, the late actor's father has filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and five other people for abetment of suicide and a string of other charges. Bihar Police has reached Mumbai and has sought Mumbai Police's help in investigating the case.
According to sources, Rhea Chakraborty, who was reportedly Sushant's girlfriend, used his credit cards on a Europe tour, sacked one of his bodyguards and even has stakes in the late Bollywood actor's company.
According to latest reports, a four-member team has reached Mumbai and is discussing Sushant's case with Mumbai Police. Bihar Police have asked for women constables from Mumbai Police for help in the investigation.
Sushant and Rhea dated for a while before the actor died by suicide on June 14. Patna police have met with DCP (Deputy Commissioner of Police) of the Mumbai investigating team.
A case has been registered under Sections 341 (Wrongful Restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 380 (theft), 406 (breach of trust), 420 (cheating), 306 (abetment to suicide) of the IPC. Patna Police has been asked to do research in this matter and take action. In his application, Singh accused Rhea of betraying Sushant and completely cutting him off from his family.
The police station in-charge of Rajiv Nagar has been made the IO of this case on the orders of Upendra Sharma, SSP of Patna. A team of four has been sent to Mumbai to investigate the matter. This team will meet the Mumbai Police and get the necessary documents apart from the case diary. The team consists of two inspectors and two sub inspectors.
Sushant's father, however, had not registered a complaint to the Mumbai police when he was questioned by them in June. He had said that he has nothing against anyone.
Mumbai's Bandra police is investigating the death of the late actor. Earlier, they had questioned Rhea in connection with the case. In her statement, Rhea had revealed that Sushant had ended his contract with Yash Raj Films (YRF) and had even asked her to do the same.
Yash Raj Films (YRF) had a three-film contract with Sushant. These included Shuddh Desi Romance, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, and Shekhar Kapur's Paani. Paani, however, got shelved due to creative differences between Shekhar and YRF.
In his statement, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali had said that he offered three films to Sushant but the actor could not take those up because of his contract with YRF. Aditya Chopra, head of YRF, was also questioned regarding the case. Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt recorded his statement with the police yesterday (July 27). Karan Johar will also be called for questioning later this week.
