The case of Sushant Singh Rajput‘s untimely demise seems to be getting more twisted by the day. With new information found by the media alongside the investigation that’s already been going on. Amidst this, actress and Sushant’s girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty‘s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has claimed that she was not allowed to attend her boyfriend’s funeral.
While speaking to ANI, the lawyer said that Rhea has always lived in Mumbai and was in Mumbai on 14th June but she wasn’t allowed to attend Sushant’s funeral as her name was struck off the list of 20 people who were allowed to attend the actor’s funeral. He also said that Rhea has been cooperating with the police and has already recorded her statement with Mumbai police on 18th June. She was called in yet again in July and she went ahead to give her statement again.
Recently, Sushant’s father filed an abetment to suicide case against Rhea in Patna, Bihar. Following this, a four-member team came down to Mumbai to further investigate this case. Rhea approached the Supreme Court and filed a transfer petition that requested for the case to stay with Mumbai police and not handed over to the Bihar police. This was in the view of the legal position that a case registered beyond the jurisdiction of where the crime took place can’t be considered.
