Actress Rhea Chakraborty has always been living in Mumbai. But was not allowed to attend Sushant’s funeral, her lawyer Satish Maneshinde said in a statement on Monday. Rhea’s name was struck off from the list of 20 people who were allowed to attend Sushant’s last rites. He further added that Rhea’s name was struck off from the list of 20 people who were allowed to attend Sushant’s last rites. His statement comes just days after the Bihar Police claimed that its team is unable to “locate” her.
Her lawyer said, “She was summoned by Mumbai Police on June 18 at Bandra police station. Her statement was recorded there. Subsequently, she was summoned to appear on July 17 at Santacruz police station. She appeared and recorded her supplementary statement.”
The duo was in a relationship but after Sushant’s death Rhea has been featuring as prime accuse for everything against whom Sushant’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against her accusing the actress of cheating and harassment.
After the FIR, a team of Bihar Police launched an investigation in Mumbai, which hasn’t gone down well with Mumbai Police. Rhea, too, has approached the Supreme Court seeking transfer of the Patna FIR to Mumbai.
Of which, Satish Maneshinde said in the statement, “Later on when the Bihar Police came to Mumbai to investigate a case on the basis of an FIR registered at Patna, she approached the Supreme Court and filed a Transfer Petition on July 30 for transfer of the case to Mumbai in view of the legal position that a case registered beyond the jurisdiction of the local police station where the alleged incident has taken place can only record a ‘ Zero FIR’ and transfer it for investigation to Mumbai where the criminal law has already been set in motion. The Bihar Police has no jurisdiction to investigate the case legally and otherwise.”
