Prime News, Nation, (Mumbai), September 2:-Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has alleged that this is “a repeat” of the 2008 Aarushi Talwar murder case where the parents accused “the entire world and we know who was prosecuted.”
He further alleged that it is for Sushant Singh Rajput’s family to explain what happened between June 8 and 14 when Rhea Chakraborty left the late actor’s Bandra residence. On the other hand, there has been no proof so far to suggest that the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput was a case of murder or homicide, a CBI source told media. As per the crime scene reconstruction and witness statements, there is no strong evidence to suggest that this could be a case of murder, the CBI source added. Although homicide or murder is not a charge in the FIR, the central agency had been probing the case from that angle too.
Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty’s father, Indrajit Chakraborty, has reached the DRDO guest house complex for questioning by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Rhea Chakraborty’s parents were questioned on Tuesday by the CBI for the first time. Rhea and her parents are among those named in the FIR registered by the Patna police for allegedly abetting Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide and misappropriating his money.
The CBI continued the interrogation of her brother Showik Chakraborty, who was called for questioning for the first time last week, on Tuesday also. Showik Chakraborty was accompanying his parents when the trio reached the DRDO guest house in a car which was escorted by a police vehicle. Rhea Chakraborty, who has been questioned for around 35 hours in the last four days, was not summoned by the central agency on Tuesday. However, the late actor’s cook Neeraj Singh, close friend Samuel Miranda, house staff Keshav and flatmate Siddharth Pithani reached the guest house later to face CBI interrogation. All of them have been questioned earlier also.
Sushant was found dead in his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14 following which the Mumbai police had registered a case of accidental death and recorded statements of nearly three dozen people. The late filmstar’s father subsequently filed a police complaint in Patna, accusing Rhea Chakraborty and her family of abetting Rajput’s suicide and misappropriating his money. The Supreme Court last week upheld the transfer of the FIR lodged in Patna to the central agency. The CBI has so far remained tight-lipped about details of its probe into the high-profile case which has been hogging media limelight.
