SSR case: Rhea appears before ED after request was rejected

Shweta Singh Kirti shares a screenshot of her chat with Sushant Singh Rajput shows how much he loved them

Mumbai: The Bihar Police on Friday filed an affidavit on behalf of Bihar government in the Supreme Court stating that Sushant Singh Rajput's father had accused Rhea Chakraborty of befriending the actor with the "sole motive of grabbing his money and property". In the meantime, they said, he could conduct his business via video conferences with the help of software like Zoom.

Actress Rhea Chakraborty, accused of abetting Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, appeared in the office of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday.

The team claimed that they were being hampered by their Mumbai counterparts, who allegedly denied them access to bank documents, witness statements and other details.

The agency is understood to have questioned Chakraborty, who stated in her petition to the court that she was in a live-in relationship with Rajput, about her friendship with the actor, business dealings and the developments that took place over the last few years between them.

After KK Singh's complaint in Bihar, a four-member team of Patna Police also arrived in Mumbai to probe the matter.

Jon Husted was also tested. "As fellow Ohioans, we stand with and support our governor and his family at this time". As of Thursday, the Ohio Department of Health reports 97,471 confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 in the state.

"Jurisdiction is just used as an excuse by the Mumbai Police to not give assistance to the Patna Police to probe the case as the law is well settled and there is provision in law to provide such an assistance", said Singh.

The back-and-forth between the two police agencies also included political sniping, with the governments of both states also taking swipes. "In view of the fact that ED has informed the media that the request to postpone the attendance is rejected ... she has appeared in the ED at the appointed time and date".

In the police complaint, it was also alleged that Rs. 15 crore were suspiciously transferred from Sushant's bank accounts.

Sources close to Ms Chakraborty said some of the transactions were not unusual for a couple, particularly one that lived together and even went on holidays together. Based on that allegation, the ED, which probes financial crimes, swung into action and filed a money laundering case.

The Patna police had registered the FIR under IPC sections related to alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and abetment to suicide, among others. Following the request by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the union government handed over the case to CBI. However, sources say that Rhea spoke to Sushant's househelp Samuel Miranda 287 times in a year, which is probably more than she spoke to Sushant.
