Mumbai : In the latest development in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, actor's father has filed a caveat in the apex court after Rhea Chakraborty moved to the Supreme Court over the transfer of investigation to Mumbai police.

Rhea Chakraborty filed a petition in the Apex court seeking transfer of investigation in actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case to the Mumbai Police, Satish Maneshinde, her lawyer confirmed.

The Jalebi actress moved SC after Sushant's father lodged an FIR against Rhea and her family for cheating, exploiting and abetment to suicide.

It was after the FIR was filed, the Bihar team police flew to Mumbai to begin the investigation process.

In the petition filed by the actress in the top court today, she has sought transfer of the case to Mumbai citing a case cannot be investigated by two teams.  

Rhea's lawyer has said that when the investigation is already going on in Mumbai and details of it are being made available to the people, then it is illegal to file an FIR in the same case. 

However, the Supreme Court has dismissed the plea by Alka Priya for the CBI probe into the actor's death. The lawyer said that that the actor did a lot in the public interest and even sent children to NASA. While the CJI in response said that let police do their job and said that this has nothing to do with whether a person was good or bad.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Bandra residence on June 14, 2020. Over 37 people have been questioned so far in relation to the actor.
