Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Sushant’s father, KK Singh lodged an FIR against Rhea, who has claimed she and Sushant were in a relationship.
She has been accused of fraud and abetting the late actor’s alleged suicide. She has been booked under IPC Sections 341, 342, 380, 406, 420, and 306.
However, she has requested Supreme Court to transfer the case from Bihar to Mumbai.
In her writ petition in the top court, Rhea claimed she was in a live-in relationship with Sushant until June 8 (six days before his death).
She added that she was traumatized after Sushant’s demise and that she has received rape and death threats.
She has also accused Sushant’s family of using “political influence” in order to allegedly drag her into the case.
Reportedly, Enforcement Directorate has filed a money laundering case in connection with Sushant’s death. The case was lodged on basis of an FIR filed by the Bihar police, officials said.
The case has come after Sushant’s family alleged that Rs. 15 crore were suspiciously transferred from his accounts.
Rhea and others are likely to be summoned by ED for interrogation next week.
