Rhea Chakraborty issues statement on Sushant Singh Rajput death case, says ‘truth shall prevail’
Actor Rhea Chakbraborty has issued a statement about the allegations levelled against her in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Sushant died by suicide on June 14, and was in a live-in relationship with Rhea, against whom an FIR has been filed under several sections of the Indian Penal Code
She said, “I have immense faith in God, and the judiciary. I believe that I will get justice. Even though a lot of horrible things are being said about me in the electronic media, I refrain from commenting on the advice of my lawyers, as the matter is sub-judice. Satyamev Jayate... the truth shall prevail.”
She also offered an explanation for a viral video in which she can be seen talking about goons and gangsters. The video was carried by several news outlets amid public backlash against Rhea, who has been accused by Sushant’s family of abetting his suicide. .
Rhea in a statement to Times Now said, “I saw the black dress video. I was doing a stand up comic act. I like to do stand up comedy sometimes. Tai is one of the characters I play.” The video shows her using words such as ‘gunda’, ‘gundagiri’ and ‘apun tai hai’.
After the FIR was registered against her in Patna, Bihar, Rhea filed a petition to have the investigation transferred to Mumbai. She alleged that there cannot be an “impartial investigation” in Bihar for the case and hence, she sought transfer of probe in the FIR to Mumbai. “In Bihar, there cannot be an impartial investigation and thereby she seeks transfer of probe in the FIR registered in Bihar to Mumbai,” she stated in her petition.
Rhea in her plea admitted that she was in a live-in relationship with Rajput and has been in deep trauma due to the death of the actor, and has been getting rape and death threats. “Petitioner has also received various death and rape threats and she is in deep trauma due to the loss of deceased, which is multiplied further due to the media sensitivity of the case,” it said, adding that she has also filed a complaint at Santa Cruz police station against the rape and death threats.
