Ever since Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against his late son and actor’s alleged ex-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, the case has taken a completely new turn. Not just his family, or fans, now various leaders from the political parties have started demanding a CBI probe in the case.
Meanwhile, Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) Gupteshwar Pandey has alleged that Mumbai Police are not doing a fair and impartial investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. Mumbai Police, which is probing the case, has called it a suicide. He also made allegations that in the past four years, Rs 50 crore was withdrawn from the late Sushant’s account, and Rs 15 crore was withdrawn in the last year alone.
“In the past four years, around Rs 50 crore was credited to the bank account of Sushant Singh Rajput but surprisingly all of it was withdrawn. In one year, Rs 17 crore was credited to his account, out of which Rs 15 crore was withdrawn. Isn’t this a crucial point to be investigated? We are not going to sit quiet. We will question them (Mumbai Police) as to why such leads are hushed up,” the DGP told the media, reports IANS.
Earlier, the DGP had alleged that Dabang IPS officer Vinay Tiwari from Bihar who has been sent with a four-member team to probe the investigation, was ‘forcibly quarantined’ in Mumbai.
“Instead of sharing evidence or handing over the postmortem and forensic reports of Sushant, they (Mumbai) have almost house arrested our SP. I have not seen such non-cooperation by any other state police. If the Mumbai Police are sincere in their approach, they should share the investigation with us,” he said, according to IANS.
The actor’s father KK Singh also alleged that Chakraborty and her family kept his son away from his family, handled his bank accounts and took away crores of rupees.
After Mumbai police failed completely to crack the case, a four-member special investigation team from Patna Police has started a parallel investigation into Rajput’s death.
With the case handed over to Tiwari, the Bihar Police has sent the Mumbai Police a strong message that Investigations will be impartial and unbiased.
On Monday, Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh said in a press conference that no money was directly transferred from Sushant’s bank account to his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty’s account. However, the police are ‘still probing’ the financial angle.
“Bihar Police FIR says Rs 15 crore were siphoned off from Sushant’s account. During the probe, we found he had Rs 18 crore in his account of which around Rs 4.5 crore are still there. Till now no direct transfer to Rhea Chakraborty’s account has been found, still probing,” the commissioner said.
Last month, Sushant’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against Rhea and her family, alleging that she misappropriated crores of rupees from the late actor’s bank account for personal expenses. He also alleged that his son was under extreme mental pressure put by Rhea Chakraborty.
Taking cognisance of the FIR against Rhea, the Enforcement Directorate filed a money laundering case against her and her relatives. Reportedly, the ED will call on the actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty for questioning in the coming days.
