Senior Lawyer Shyam Divan who is leading Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case on behalf of Rhea Chakraborty appealed to the Supreme Court about State Interference in the matter and pointed out about apprehension of bias in the same. “There are serious apprehensions of bias in the case. Ends of justice will be met if prayers will be allowed”, he argued. As per a report by ANI, lawyer is said to be arguing in Supreme Court over Rhea’s plea seeking the transfer of investigation case filed by Sushant’s father from Patna to Mumbai. In the SC hearing of Rhea’s petition, actress on Tuesday told the court how the FIR filed by Sushant’s father against her has no relation with any offence in Patna.


Divan mentioned about the complaint filed by Sushant’s father and argued that all the allegations which are charged are relatable to Mumbai adding how there was a delay of over 38 days in filing the FIR in Patna. By making several other statements he even asserted how due to state interference and influence might make the case biased. Divan argued that Sushant’s father is using influential relatives to ‘frame’ Rhea Chakraborty. He also suggested how the way to acquire justice in this case shall be achieved by accepting Rhea’s appeal to transfer the case from Patna to Mumbai.
