Sushant Singh Rajput’s father files FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, 5 others in Patna
KK Singh lodged the official complaint against the actress in Patna today
It has been over a month since Sushant Singh Rajput allegedly died by suicide. He was reportedly found dead in his Bandra home on June 14. His father KK Singh has finally broken his silence on the matter. He has filed an FIR against Bollywood actress and VJ Rhea Chakraborty for abetting his son’s suicide. The FIR was filed in Rajiv Nagar Police Station, Patna, where the actor’s familial home is. The FIR alleges that Rhea took money from Sushant and forced him to take the drastic step. The late actor’s father has also claimed in his complaint that she had exploited Sushant financially and compelled him to keep a distance from his folks. The complaint further alleges that Rhea breached his trust, cheated on him and threatened him that she would reveal the details of his apparent mental health issues to the media. It’s also reported that Sushant’s father has claimed that Rhea withdrew Rs 15 crore from his account. The FIR also reportedly states that Rhea had access to Sushant’s debit and credit cards and used them to exploit the actor, financially.
Reports now suggest that a four-member team of police from Patna has reached Mumbai and is discussing the progress in the case with the Mumbai Police. The Bihar Police have also requested to be aided with women constables from the Mumbai Police to help with the investigation. While speaking to media, Patna Central Zone IG Sanjay Singh confirmed, “The FIR has been registered against Rhea Chakraborty under various sections, including abetment of suicide, on the complaint filed by Sushant Singh Rajput’s father.” The FIR has named five others who have all been booked under IPC Section 306 (Abetment of suicide), Sec 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint), Sec 342 (Punishment for wrongful confinement), Sec 380 (Theft in dwelling house), Sec 406 (Punishment for criminal breach of trust), and Sec 420 (Cheating).
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. Sushant’s father has claimed that Rhea used Sushant’s success as a ladder to propel her own career.
The late actor’s father has also alleged that Rhea intentionally compelled Sushant to feel depressed, and forced him to take wrong medicines for his mental illness. According to the FIR, Sushant’s father has claimed that it was Rhea who changed his son’s mobile number, so that his family would lose touch with him.
