Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty
The Directorate of Enforcement (ED), on July 31, launched a probe against actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s former girlfriend and others in connection with the death of the actor. The probe was launched following a FIR filed by Bihar Police on July 28 on the basis of a complaint filed by Sushant’s father Krishna Kishore Singh.
Singh filed an FIR against Rhea, her family and six others in Patna, claiming they abetted Rajput’s commit suicide. Charges of cheating, theft and wrongful confinement have also been levied against the accused by Bihar police.
Following the FIR, Rhea recently released a brief video statement through her lawyers, in which she said that she has immense faith in God and the judiciary. The Bihar Police team, which is investigating the FIR registered in Patna against Chakraborty in Mumbai, also recorded the statement of Rajput’s former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, in which she reportedly commented on Rajput’s mental health. According to reports, Lokhande also informed Bihar Police that the late actor was quite unhappy because Chakraborty had harassed him.
