On Friday, Bihar government informed the Supreme Court in an affidavit that it has the jurisdiction to file FIR in the death of Sushant Singh Rajput case and the actor’s then-girlfriend and now prime accused Rhea Chakraborty came in contact with the late actor only to grab his wealth.
In that affidavit, it was said that “She over-dosed him with drugs and then spread the word that he was mentally ill”. This affidavit was filed by the Bihar government, as it cited Sushant’s father K.K Singh’s complaint and opposed Rhea Chakraborty’s plea in the Supreme Court which sought transfer of the case from Patna to Mumbai.The affidavit said that Sushant’s father gave a written complaint to the SHO, Rajeev Nagar P.S claiming that in the year 2019, actress Rhea Chakraborty came in contact with Sushant with the ‘only’ intention to grab crores of rupees, which was the hard-earned money of the late actor.
It is further stated that the petitioner and her relative namely Indrajeet Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty, Shovik Chakraborty used to completely interfere in the life of the deceased actor.
The affidavit said citing K.K. Singh, Sushant’s father that, “The petitioner (Rhea) and her relative desperately attempting to give the impression to the deceased actor that he is suffering from mental illness for which he required treatment. The petitioner also took the deceased to her house where she started giving him an overdose of medicines.”
The affidavit also mentioned that Rhea Chakraborty took all the belongings of the late actor, and also kept him away from his family by taking control over his life. The petitioner also took his bank account details and started using the money according to her wishes. The deceased actor wanted to leave the film industry and do organic farming in Coorg, however, the petitioner started blackmailing the deceased 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,” added the affidavit.
The affidavit further claimed, “The deceased actor had informed his sister that the petitioner will falsely implicate him if the deceased did not pay heed to her.”
The state government insisted that the Patna police have jurisdiction to register the FIR. The court in Patna has jurisdiction to try the petitioner for the offence as mentioned in the FIR registered with Rajeev Nagar P.S (Patna).
