Actress grilled by ED for money-laundering

New Delhi, August 7

The Bihar Government on Friday alleged before the Supreme Court that Rhea Chakraborty gave drug overdose to actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

In an affidavit filed in response to Chakraborty’s plea for transfer of an FIR lodged against her in Patna to Mumbai in connection with Rajput’s unnatural death, the Bihar Government sought dismissal of her plea terming it premature, misconceived and not maintainable.

Chakraborty, said to be the deceased actor’s girlfriend, is now being probed as an accused in the case by the CBI after an FIR lodged against her in Patna got transferred to the Central agency.

“She overdosed him with drugs and then spread the word that he was mentally ill,” the affidavit said, citing Sushant father’s complaint.

It is further stated that the petitioner and her relatives namely Indrajeet Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty and Shovik Chakraborty used to interfere in the actor’s life.

“The petitioner also took his bank account details and started using it according to her wishes. The actor wanted to leave the film industry and do organic farming in Coorg, but the petitioner started blackmailing the actor by saying that she will give his medical report to the media and prove him ‘mad’ after which he will not get any kind of work,” the affidavit stated.

“The actor had informed his sister that the petitioner (Rhea) will falsely implicate him, if the deceased did not pay heed to her,” the affidavit stated.

The affidavit was filed on a day when a Bench headed by CJI SA Bobde dismissed a PIL by a law student seeking a CBI probe into the actor’s death after being told that it has already been taken over by the CBI. The Centre has filed an impleadment application.
