Sushant Singh Rajput’s family has been assuring his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty under various sections, including abetment of suicide. According to Mumbai Police, Sushant’s family has been trying to ‘mislead’ the public by releasing WhatsApp conversations.
The cops even said that the late actor’s family told them to ‘slap’ Rhea.
“He [the relative] wanted us to slap actor Rhea Chakraborty and keep her in custody without a formal complaint,” Zone 9 Deputy Commissioner of Police Paramjit Singh Dahiya was quoted as saying.
Earlier it was revealed that actor’s brother-in-law OP Singh expressed concerns about Sushant’s well-being. They also expressed it to police in February, but police didn’t take it seriously. However, cops said that the family wanted the matter to be resolved informally, without an official complaint.
“In February, he sent me WhatsApp messages, asking me to call Rhea to the police station and slap her. Rhea and Sushant were in a live-in relationship then. They wanted us to take her and someone named Miranda in custody. I told him we need a written complaint to take any action, but he didn’t file one.” Dahiya continued.
“I can’t call the actor and slap her. This is against the law and O P Singh should know this… I had asked O P Singh several times to file a formal complaint, but he never did. Why is the senior IPS officer bringing up the matter after 45 days and spreading the wrong message that we didn’t act?”
“When the matter went out of hand, Sushant called up my wife to be rescued. He stayed with us 2-3 days. went back fine citing his shooting commitments. He is downhill again with reports of Rhea firing all Sushant’s loyal team members and putting her own stooges. His third sister, a Delhi-based lawyer, who used to be with him and visit him frequently is panicky that he has surrendered to a manipulative group of people and his life is at risk,” one of the messages read.
In a video message shared on Monday, Sushant’s father KK Singh said, “On February 25, I informed Bandra Police that the life of my son Sushant is in danger. He died on June 14 and I asked them to act against people named in my Feb 25 complaint. No action has been taken even 40 days after his death. So, I filed FIR in Patna. Patna Police swung into action. But the accused is running away(on the loose). Patna Police should be given help. I thank Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his colleague Sanjay Jha who gave support to the truth in this hour of grief.”
