‘I was groped by Sushant Rajput's sister,’ claims Rhea Chakraborty
Mumbai : Rhea Chakraborty who has been accused by Sushant Singh Rajput's family of driving him to suicide, on Tuesday came out with shocking new charges against them.
In a statement released by Rhea’s lawyer, Ms Chakraborty said she has obeyed every single request from agencies investigating Sushant’s death.
Calling herself the daughter of an Indian Army surgeon and a Maharashtrian housewife, she said the charges against her were total nonsense.
She faced a unpleasant incident with Sushant Singh's family last year in April when one night, while she was living with the actor, his sister allegedly slipped into her bed and groped her while drunk.
"Rhea was extremely shocked and demanded that she leave the room immediately. Subsequently, Rhea herself left the house," the statement said.
"Thereafter, Rhea informed Sushant as to what had transpired and Sushant got into an argument with his sister regarding the same. That due to the aforesaid incident, the relationship between Sushant's family and Rhea had been tense since inception," it added.
The allegation, however, was firmly denied by the lawyer presenting Sushant Singh's father, who said the actor regretted getting involved with Rhea Chakraborty and apologised to the sisters for it.
Rhea Chakraborty also claimed that Sushant Singh Rajput had been trying for days to get his family to come and meet him before his death and one of his sisters agreed to it after several days of Sushant calling and crying over the phone.
Due to this development, Sushant requested Rhea to live with her parents for the time being. Rhea had been suffering from her own anxiety issues and often suffered panic attacks. Sushant's conduct also aggravated these conditions. Even though Rhea was hopeful of seeing her family, she was not at all comfortable with leaving Sushant," the statement said.
"Thus Rhea halfheartedly left and informed Sushant to let her or her brother know about anything he required or in case he needed to talk," it added.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14. The Mumbai Police said the actor had died by suicide.
