Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer said they will ask the central agency to take action against people who made false claims before the media.
A neighbour of Rhea Chakraborty, who had accused her of meeting Sushant Singh Rajput a day before his death, has failed to substantiate the claim before the Central Bureau of Investigation. The agency has warned her against spreading false information.
Rhea Chakraborty will take on everyone who made fake claims, her lawyer said yesterday. “We will be forwarding a list of people to CBI who made fake and false claims on TV and Electronic Media including carrying mobile recording and fake stories on SSR case with particular reference to Rhea Chakraborty to go after them and record their statements. We will request CBI to take legal proceedings against them for misleading the investigations,” Satish Maneshinde said in a statement.
Sushant Rajput, 34, was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14. The Mumbai police said it was a case of suicide, which has been supported by a team of doctors from Delhi’s prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences which looked into the forensic evidence.
Rhea Chakraborty’s neighbour had claimed on television that she had met with Sushant Singh Rajput, whom she had been dating, a day before his death.
The CBI team met her when they were at Rhea Chakraborty’s home in connection with the investigation. But when they asked her about her claims, she could not substantiate them.
The woman told the CBI that she did not see Sushant Rajput drop Rhea Chakraborty to her home on June 13.
The vilification of Rhea Chakraborty on a section of electronic media and social media has been flagged for long by the actor and her family.
They blamed it for the snowballing of the issue, which led to involvement of three central agencies in the investigation and the subsequent arrest of Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty.
