sushant-rheaNEW DELHI/MUMBAI : Soon after the legal team of Rhea Chakraborty issued a statement in response to the allegations leveled against her in connection with the death of her ex-boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput (SSR), the legal team of the deceased actor said that such a defence is like ‘Chor Ki Daadi Mein Tinka’ which translates to ‘a mole in the thief’s beard’.

Speaking to the media in New Delhi, senior advocate Vikas Singh said, “Why is she giving clarifications on Aaditya Thackeray? He is not a part of our complaint. Her mentioning him is like the Hindi saying ‘Chor ki Daadi Mein Tinka’.”

He further questioned as to how can Rhea give a clean chit to herself. “How can she say that nothing has come out in the ED probe. The investigation is still underway,” he said. Singh further alleged that the late actor’s kin had on February 25 only said that there is a threat to his life but the police didn’t take any action.
“Aggrieved by the same, the family approached me and then an FIR was registered,” Singh said, while adding that Rhea first left the home, then Sushant’s sister came in. “Why did she leave SSR in such a bad state? Why did she block him? On one floor, SSR used to sleep and on the other floor people were partying,” the senior counsel said.
He also said that Sushant’s sister Priyanka was close to him and the allegations regarding molestation were mere tactics to remove Priyanka from the late actor’s life. “After tarnishing Sushant and Priyanka’s relationship, Rhea also changed his charted accountant. She took control of all his accounts, a lot of money was transferred from his account,” he said.
Earlier in the day, the legal team of Rhea detailed the entire incident pertaining to the previous allegation made by the actress that it was Priyanka, the sister of the late actor, who had molested her after getting drunk, and the incident had caused a rift between the siblings.sushant-rhea-priyanka
“In the initial months of their relationship, when Rhea had visited Sushant’s house, his sister Priyanka and her husband Siddharth were living with him. One night, in and around April 2019, Rhea and Priyanka had gone out to a party. Priyanka consumed copious amounts of alcohol and was behaving inappropriately with men as well as women at the party. So, Rhea insisted that they return to Sushant’s home.

In a lengthy statement released by Actor Rhea Chakraborty  lawyer, Ms Chakraborty said she has complied with every single request from agencies investigating the 34-year-old Bollywood star’s death. Calling herself the “daughter of an Indian Army surgeon and a Maharashtrian housewife”, she said the charges against her were “total nonsense”.
She traced the bad blood with Sushant Singh’s family to April 2019 when one night, while she was living with the actor, his sister allegedly slipped into her bed and groped her while drunk.
“Rhea was extremely shocked and demanded that she leave the room immediately. Subsequently, Rhea herself left the house,” the statement said.
“Thereafter, Rhea informed Sushant as to what had transpired and Sushant got into an argument with his sister regarding the same. That due to the aforesaid incident, the relationship between Sushant’s family and Rhea had been strained since inception,” it added.
The allegation, however, was firmly denied by the lawyer presenting Sushant Singh’s father, who said the actor regretted getting involved with Rhea Chakraborty and apologised to the sisters for it.
Rhea Chakraborty also claimed that SSR had been trying for days to get his family to come and meet him before his death and one of his sisters agreed to it “after several days of Sushant calling and crying over the phone”.
“Due to this development, Sushant requested Rhea to live with her parents for the time being. Rhea had been suffering from her own anxiety issues and often endured panic attacks. Sushant’s conduct also aggravated these conditions. Even though Rhea was desirous of seeing her family, she was not at all comfortable with leaving Sushant,” the statement said.

“Thus Rhea reluctantly left and informed Sushant to let her or her brother know about anything he required or in case he needed to talk,” it added. Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14.
More than a month later, his father KK Singh filed a case in Bihar, accusing 28-year-old Rhea Chakraborty and her family of cheating him financially and mentally harassing him.

The complaint has spawned two separate investigations by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate, which probes financial crimes, and a legal wrangle in the Supreme Court over jurisdiction.
“The comments made at the last hearing before the Hon’ble Supreme Court on the 11th of August 2020, make it evident that this has become more about politics than the truth. Unwanted and irrelevant submissions are being made. The number of politicians taking advantage of this case on the eve of elections in Bihar,” Rhea Chakraborty’s statement said.

Amid the legal tangle involved in this case, heightened media attention and sensationalizing of the case has been another ground for Rhea to demand transfer of the case to Mumbai. In her last submission to the Court, Rhea said that the Court could use its extraordinary powers under Article 142 to order a CBI probe but allowing the same based on transfer of the case from Patna to Mumbai will be “without jurisdiction and contrary to law”.
The Supreme Court will pronounce judgment on Wednesday on actor Rhea Chakraborty’s petition for transfer of FIR filed against her alleging abetment of actor SSR’s death to Mumbai.
