Even after 50 days of Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, the search for the truth behind his unfortunate death continues. With Mumbai police investigating the case first and later the involvement of the Patna police that made the case messy. The case is currently being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
Rhea Chakraborty, the girlfriend of the late actor, has been accused of abetment of suicide, cheating, and conspiracy. However, on Monday, she has come out and said that she has been a victim of media trial which has pronounced her guilty before the due judicial process. She has filed an additional affidavit in responding to the contentions of both Bihar and Maharashtra government. The Supreme Court is set to hear the matter on the 18th of August. In her affidavit, Rhea said,
“The sad incident of the death of Sushant, who hailed from Bihar, unfortunately, occurred just in wake of elections in Bihar. This has led to the issue of suicide of the deceased being isolated and blown out of proportion. A few media channels are examining and cross-examining all the witnesses in the case. I am already convicted by media even before a foul-play in the death of Sushant is established.”
Rhea Takes On Media
The affidavit further reads,
“Infringement of privacy of my rights is caused due to the constant sensationalization of this case. Media had convicted accused in 2G and Talwar case in a similar fashion where each and every accused was later on found innocent by the courts. The fact that the ruling party in Bihar and center is the same and the said party is in minority in Maharashtra; the purported transfer the case to the magistrate in Patna and further to CBI is only to render my transfer plea infructuous.”
The twists came on emerging in the late actor’s death investigation. It needs to be seen what the top court says about the affidavit.
