An ambiguous twist has taken on Sushant Singh Rajput’s case when Patna police reached Mumbai for investigation after Sushant’s filed a case against Dil bechara actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
Patna Police Investigation: Sushant’s father filed a case against Rhea
The high-level meeting was held at Bihar DGP’s office in Patna over the investigation being conducted by Bihar Police team in Mumbai regarding the case.
Earlier, Devendra Fadnavis had urged ED that it should register an ECIR in connection with the money laundering angle.
The lawyer of Sushant’s father told the reason of filing the case in Patna. Vikas Singh has said the Rajput family wants the Patna Police to probe the case. As of now, they have not demanded a CBI investigation. Vikas recently told ANI, “FIR has been registered now as the family was in shock and the Mumbai Police wasn’t registering an FIR, but forcing them to give names of big production houses and get them involved.It (the investigation) was heading in a different direction.”
He added, “Patna Police was a little hesitant to register an FIR but chief minister Nitish Kumar and minister Sanjay Jha explained the matter to them and an FIR was registered. We want that the matter should be investigated by the Patna Police. The family has not demanded a CBI investigation yet.”
Patna police said that an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) has been filed against the accused named in the Bihar Police FIR that includes Rhea Chakraborty, her family and six others.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande, has broken her silence on his death, more than a month after he was found dead in his Bandra apartment. Ankita in an interview with Republic TV, has said that Sushant could not have been ‘depressed’.
Sushant was not the one who could commit suicide.
We have seen worse situations when we were together. He was a happy-go-lucky guy,” she said. Ankita and Sushant met on the sets of their television show Pavitra Rishta, and were in a relationship for six years until 2016.
She continued, “How much ever I know him, he wasn’t a depressed guy. I have not seen a person like Sushant, a guy who used to write his own dreams, he had a diary… He had his 5-year plan — what he wants to do, how he will look, etc. And exactly after 5 years, he had fulfilled them. And when things like ‘depression’ are used after his name… it is heartbreaking. He might be upset, anxious, yes, but depression is a big word. Calling someone ‘bipolar’ is a big thing.”
Sushant’s father accused Rhea Chakraborty of harassing his son
Republic TV accessed incriminating evidence ‘ Sushant’s bank statements ‘ that revealed huge transactions that were made for girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik. Multiple expenses like flight tickets, hotel stay, tuition fees, shopping, and more were made from Sushant’s account for Rhea and her brother Showik.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh in his complaint filed in Patna against the late actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and five others claimed that around Rs 15 crores was withdrawn from Sushant Singh Rajput’s bank account in the last one year and transferred to accounts that had no link with him.
KK Singh also alleged that his suicide was a ‘well-planned conspiracy by Rhea’. In the complaint, he stated that Rhea ‘befriended Sushant to climb the ladder of success in Bollywood’ and added that ‘she wanted to grab his son’s wealth and interfered in every decision of his’.
He added “They made him vacate his existing house claiming paranormal activity. Rhea & family made Sushant stay in a hotel close to Mumbai airport and was repeatedly told that he was mentally disturbed & must get treated.”

She broke her silence today and said tearfully in a video released by her lawyers: “Truth shall prevail”. “I have immense faith in god and the judiciary. I believe that I will get justice. Even though a lot of horrible things are being said about me on the electronic media, I refrain from commenting on the advice of my lawyers as the matter is sub-judice,” Rhea Chakraborty said in the video, her hands folded, her face tear-stained.
The Bihar Police have found an undated video of Rhea Chakraborty, in which she could be heard as using words like hafta vasooli (extortion), gunda, etc. Notably, Rhea Chakraborty has been accused by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father of ‘abetment to suicide’, among other charges.
There are no details as regards in what context the conversation was happening in the video. It is also not yet clear when was the video shot.

Swamy took to Twitter on Thursday and posted a document to support his claim.
“Why I think Sushanth Singh Rajput was murdered,” Swamy tweeted along with a photograph of the document that has 26 points.
According to the document, the mark on Sushant’s neck did not indicate suicide but instead hinted at homicide.
The document further claims that for suicide by hanging, one has to hang himself by removing the table under his feet.
“This huge force is not possible in homicidal strangulation,” read the document.
The document further reads that marks on his body indicate “beating”. Swami also showed possibilities of him being poisoned.
Why Mumbai Police not filed a FIR on Sushant Singh Rajput? Why post-mortem report been titled provisional? Both for one reason : The Hospital doctors are awaiting SSR’s viscera report from Forensic Department to know whether he had been poisoned. His nails have also been sent

This comes a day after Swamy spoke to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and said that he will initiate a CBI inquiry into the matter.
Subramanian Swamy also revealed that Sushant’s post mortem report had been titled ‘provisional’ because clarification from the Forensic Department was awaited. It’s been more than 45 days to Sushant’s death now and the FIR is still not filed.
