August 08 : Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh filed a counter affidavit before Supreme Court today, stating that the investigation into the late actor’s death case has already been transferred to the CBI. So, Rhea Chakraborty’s petition seeking transfer of the probe to Mumbai from Patna stands ineffective.
After KK Singh had filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty in Patna, the actress filed a plea and urged the apex court to transfer the probe from Patna to Mumbai. While the court will hear Rhea’s plea on August 11, KK Singh today filed a counter affidavit against her petition. In another development, CBI on Friday moved the Supreme Court and urged it to make itself a party to Rhea’s petition for transferring the FIR lodged against her in Patna to Mumbai.
Sushant’s father had filed the FIR against Rhea under various sections of IPC, accusing her of abetment of suicide, wrongful restraint, wrongful confinement, theft, criminal breach of trust, and cheating. Rhea was on Friday questioned by the Enforcement Directorate for over eight hours along with his brother, father, and Sushant’s ex-manager.
Meanwhile, after Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate on Friday, he was once again seen arriving at the Enforcement Directorate’s office today, reports ANI. Today, Rhea was not with him. CBI has also registered an FIR against Showik in the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.
