Mumbai : Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer has filed a petition on her behalf, requesting the investigation into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput be transferred to Mumbai. 

Sushant Singh Rajput’s father, KK Singh on Tuesday filed an FIR against Rhea under the various sections of the IPC.

“Petition filed by actor Rhea Chakraborty in Supreme Court seeking transfer of investigation in #SushantSinghRajput’s death to Mumbai: Satish Maneshinde, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer,” news agency ANI tweeted.

KK Singh lodged the case with Rajiv Nagar police station against Rhea Chakraborty, and her family including Indrajit Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty, Shruti Modi, Showik Chakraborty and others. Sushant’s father has alleged that Rhea had kept Sushant away from his family and completely in her possession. She was also handling his bank account. It was also reported that crores of rupees were withdrawn from his bank account.

The FIR further stated that on June 8, when Rhea found that bank balance of Sushant is going down, she left with cash, jewellery, laptop, credit card, its pin number and password and important documents and doctors’ receipts.

Sushant was found dead at his Bandra apartment on June 14, at the age of 34. The Mumbai Police have so far questioned over 40 people in connection with the case. 

On being asked about Sushant Singh Rajput's death case to be transferred to CBI, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said, "Mumbai police are investigating the case. It will not be transferred to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)."
