Sushant Singh Rajput’s Father Files FIR Against Rhea Chakraborty and her Family
Update: Post has been updated with the latest changes and official statements.
Statement from the Patna Police:
FIR registered now as family was in shock & Mumbai Police wasn’t registering FIR, but forcing them to give names of big production houses & get them involved. It was heading in a different direction – Vikas Singh, Ex-Addl Solicitor General & lawyer of Sushant Singh Rajput‘s father
Preliminary investigation has begun. It is not correct to say at this point of time that who will be questioned. All those who were named by Sushant Singh Rajput‘s father in the FIR, have been booked – Vinay Tiwari, Patna (Central) City SP.
From the Mumbai Police:
We recorded the statement of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh and sister. However, neither to them took Rhea Chakraborty’s name during questioning. In fact, when the actor’s father and brother-in-law met Joint Commissioner, Law and Order, even then they did not mention Rhea’s name.
On Tuesday, we got to know about the FIR lodged by KK Singh and the arrival of a four-member police team from Bihar. We are investigating three of Sushant Singh Rajput’s companies where Rhea Chakraborty and her brother were directors. However, we don’t want to come to any conclusion due to media pressure. – Mumbai Police
The police clearly said that the Bihar police can interrogate Riya but cannot arrest or take them in custody as they will require an order from the Mumbai Police Commissionerate since the incident is registered in Mumbai. According to another IPS officer, there has been no communication about the possibility of transferring the case to Bihar Police.
It is said that an FIR legally lodged in Bihar can be transferred to the Mumbai Police, or transferred to a third agency by order of the government or court.
In a surprising twist of events, Sushant Singh Rajput’s father has filed an FIR (First Information Report) at Rajendra Nagar police station in Patna on Sunday against Sushant’s ex-girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty and five other people including her family members.
In this FIR, Rhea, her brother, her mother, her father and Sushant’s ex-manager and ex-business manager have been booked under IPC Section 306 (Abetment of suicide), Sec 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint), Sec 342 (Punishment for wrongful confinement), Sec 380 (Theft in dwelling house), Sec 406 (Punishment for criminal breach of trust), and Sec 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property).
While my son was doing extremely well in Bollywood till May 2019, a girl named Rhea Chakraborty and her family members and others got in touch with him so that she could use his contacts to make a career in the film industry.
She along with her family members, namely Indrajit Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty and Shauvik Chakraborty, started interfering in my son’s life. They even forced him to move out of the house he was living in, saying that some paranormal activities were going on there which had a big time impact on my son’s mind. They forced him to live in a resort near Mumbai airport – Mr. K K Singh
Since Sushant’s death, the media and most people online were focused on the Bollywood mafia and indirectly blamed them for his death. This step from Sushant’s father showed that he doesn’t really think the Mumbai Police are doing their investigation properly since Rhea was already interviewed at the beginning of this case. The rest of her family were not called by the Mumbai Police as they did not feature anywhere in their investigation reports. At present, Mumbai Police is investigating Sushant’s connection with several Bollywood personalities since this has been the focus everywhere.
Now, in what seems to be the first step that Sushant’s family has taken, Mr. K K Singh has thrown in several serious allegations against Rhea, her family and Sushant’s ex-managers. As per the jurisdiction and criminal procedure, an FIR filed in a city or state where the crime was not committed does not really help the case but complicates it further. No other state can restart or reopened a case.
Patna Police has sent a 4-team member to Mumbai to investigate the claims made in the FIR. By right, his father or his family or the Patna Police should have taken their concerns to the Mumbai Police and ask them to investigate the allegations but they went ahead and filed an FIR with all the serious charges.
For the past three days in Mumbai, the Bihar Police has approached Mumbai Police, and spoken to Sushant’s friends.
Sushant’s family was waiting to see what conclusion the Mumbai Police comes to but since the investigation is taking too long, they were advised to file their FIR at that particular Patna police station.
KK Singh lodged the case with Rajiv Nagar police station against Rhea Chakraborty, and her family including Indrajit Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty, Shruti Modi, Showik Chakraborty and others under Sections 341, 342, 380, 406,420, 306 and 120 (B) of the IPC. Sushant’s father has made a serious charge against Rhea and her family. He has alleged that she had kept Sushant away from his family and completely in her possession. She was also handling his bank account. It was also reported that crores of rupees were withdrawn from his bank account. – Patna Police
Sushant’s family was reportedly not happy with the way the Mumbai Police was handling this. According to them, MP wanted his family to out big production houses instead of looking at this possible personal angle.
The Explosive Allegations in the FIR of Sushant’s father:
- Rhea exploited Sushant financially
- Rhea distanced Sushant from his family
- Rhea drove Sushant to commit suicide
- Rhea threatened to reveal Sushant’s mental illness details to the media
- Rhea used Sushant’s success in Bollywood as a ladder for her career
- Rhea had access to his debit and credit cards and even used them
- Rhea forced Sushant to take the wrong medications for his mental illness
- Rhea threatened to destroy Sushant’s career in Bollywood
- Rhea changed Sushant’s mobile number
- Rhea kept Sushant hostage and didn’t let any of his family members stay close to him
- Rhea overdosed Sushant and told the media he had dengue
- Rhea withdrew Rs 15 crore from Sushant’s account
- Rhea left Sushant’s home with her belongings, cash, jewelry, laptop, credit card, its pin number and password and important documents and doctors’ receipts when she realized he was running out of money
My son wanted to leave Bollywood and do organic farming in Kerala with his friend Mahesh. Rhea Chakraborty raised objection and threatened him, saying that if he didn’t listen to her, she would give my son’s medical reports to the media. She also said that she would tell everyone that Sushant s not mentally stable. When Rhea realized that Sushant was not listening to her and his bank balance was also going down, she thought that he was of no use to her. Rhea, who was living with Sushant, left on June 8 with cash, jewelry, laptops, credit card, it pin numbers, important documents and doctors’ receipts. She blocked his number after moving out from his place. – Mr. K K Singh (Sushant’s father)
- Mr. K K Singh also alleged in the FIR that Sushant told him over the phone that Rhea and her family would not leave him, they would drive him mad.
On June 8, cash, Mr. K K Singh alleged that Rhea left and thereafter, Sushant called his sister and told her that Rhea had threatened him. Sushant was afraid Rhea was going to share his mental illness with the media and also frame him for his secretary’s suicide.
“Sushant called his sister and told her that Rhea had threatened him to show doctor receipts to the media and would prove him mad. Thereafter, no person would give him work. On June 8 night, Sushant’s secretary Disha committed suicide. Rhea had appointed her as Sushant’s secretary. Later, Rhea blocked Sushant’s number on her cell. Sushant was afraid that Rhea could have made him responsible for his manager’s suicide as she had threatened to frame him in the secretary’s suicide case.” – Patna Police
Mr K K Singh is seeking the answers to the following 7 questions, as stated in the FIR:
- Before meeting Rhea in 2019, Sushant did not suffer from any mental agony. However, after meeting Rhea, why was he all of a sudden mentally disturbed?
- If Sushant was at all undergoing any mental treatment, why the family wasn’t informed? There was no written or verbal consent taken from the family?
- KK Singh has accused the doctors treating Sushant of being a part of conspiracy by Rhea against Sushant. Hence, he has urged to investigate the doctors and even the medicines prescribed to Sushant on this while.
- Despite knowing the Sushant was going through a tough phase and was dealing with mental illness, why did Rhea leave him alone and broke all connections with him?
- In 2019, Sushant had Rs 17 crore in one of his bank accounts. However, within few months in last one year, about Rs 15 crore out of the 17 crore were transferred from Sushant’s account to accounts which were not related to the late actor. KK Singh has urged that all the bank accounts and credit cards of Sushant Singh be investigated to know how much amount Rhea, her relatives and other people known to her had duped from him.
- Why did Sushant stop getting films after meeting Rhea despite being popular in the Bollywood industry?
- When Sushant wanted to leave the film industry and pursue organic farming at Coorg in Kerala, why did Rhea stop him from shifting there?
Rhea and her family are facing some serious charges as this FIR was filed by the deceased’s father. Rhea has now her lawyer by her side to help decide the next course of action on her part to fight these allegations.
As much as it is his father’s right to seek justice for Sushant, it is also Rhea’s right to defend herself. As stated before when Sushant’s passed, this is going to stay with Rhea for a long long time unless she manages to clear her name but even that, she will still be known for this.
Sushant’s family must have some sort of proof if they are making these serious allegations but Rhea too was living in with him so she should be able to produce documents to prove that she did not do what they are alleging she did.
The family is not denying Sushant suffered from a mental illness but they are alleging it was caused by Rhea.
All these allegations make it look like Rhea planned to make Sushant sick with a mental illness then steal his money and get away with it. They are basically saying Rhea is a conniving con-woman who was out to get Sushant. If that was really the case then it’s quite something! It’s mindblowing! But then again, nothing is surprising anymore.
Honestly, it is quite normal for this to have come to this because in most cases of suicide, the first suspect is always the one closest to the deceased. It could be the spouse, partner, family member, or someone else unless the cause was due to something else. So it’s not that surprising that the family decided to take this step and accuse Rhea since she was the closest to him.
Sushant never shared anything with his family. Other than Ankita, they were not aware of the other ladies he was with. So they must have solid evidence before accusing Rhea or else it will not work.
Based on the FIR, the family is alleging that Sushant took his own life because he was scared Rhea was going to leak his medical records and she was also going to frame him for his ex-secretary’s death.
But a few things don’t really add up…
Was the money taken at one shot or was it little by little? Because that much money is a lot, not a small amount. Was there a joint account or was it Sushant’s account? Either way, it’s not cash but from the bank so it’s easily traceable. In 2019, that much money was taken but Rhea was still with him until June. Sushant didn’t sign any project from last year and wasn’t paid a signing amount so how were they managing financially?
Both of his helpers mentioned that Sushant told them he won’t be able to pay them anymore when he last settled their salaries, was it because there was no more money or was it because he was intending to take this drastic step?
If it’s a financial issue, why did his family member and the cops cleared out the financial angle at the beginning after reviewing his bank accounts? It could be that the family member was in no state of mind to go through this but the cops also had to investigate properly before closing that angle. It couldn’t have been done in haste.
Both Sushant and Rhea did go on a Europe tour together, one of the pictures above is them in Italy. Is this the same holiday that is referred to in the FIR?
They were also living-in together in a place where they chose to pay the full year rent at once and were looking for another place. Is that where the money went? The place was in both Sushant and Rhea’s name, a fact that further irked the family.
It doesn’t explain why Sushant was scared that she would frame him for his secretary’s death when it was reported that the late girl didn’t even work with him and was in charge of his work only during ‘Dhoni’s shoot.
But it does explain why the family didn’t want her at his funeral. She didn’t even go back to the house they once shared so this must mean that the family was against her from the beginning.
As per the initial report, Sushant called her the night before but she didn’t pick up. If she blocked his number, he wouldn’t be able to get through but his call was traced to Rhea’s phone and it was reported that it went unanswered. As per Rhea when she was being questioned by the police, she told them they were still in touch even though she left the place. This can be checked by authorities, they must have otherwise there would be loopholes in her statement.
One of his sisters was there at the time of his death. She was called right after they found him. If a close family member came to Mumbai to keep an eye on him, why is his father saying Rhea left him all alone?
Who was Sushant’s next of kin? When he went for treatment or even was hospitalized, who was his NOK? Did he assign Rhea as his NOK? The family is asking how come their permission wasn’t required? Was Sushant’s case severe that he needed approval or permission or notification from his NOK before starting treatment?
Is it possible for Rhea to conspire with medical professionals just to diagnose Sushant? Does she have that much power? Is her family powerful in Mumbai and do they have that kind of clout?
If she overdosed him or gave him wrong medications, this can also be proven but the autopsy didn’t find anything suspicious. Unless that happened before his passing since Sushant was not taking his medications anymore as per his friends and helpers. Constant overdosing has an effect on the liver and kidney so it can be checked if that is the case.
What was the reason for Sushant to see as many as five medical professionals since early this year? Was he not satisfied with the treatment or the diagnosis?
If Sushant wanted to retire and do farming, why is the question of not getting film offers brought up?
If Sushant wanted to retire, why would it worry him so much that Rhea was going to tell the media about his mental illness and jeopardize his career in Bollywood? If she did end up doing that, he had a right to sue her.
Did Sushant not get any film offers or did he not work in any films after meeting Rhea? The last film he shot for was ‘Chhichhore‘ released in 2019 but he himself didn’t work on any other project that year.
Sushant always did what he wanted to do so was he in such a bad state that Rhea was able to have power over him and dictate his behavior, as told in the FIR?
Sushant was in touch with Mahesh, if he was going through all this, would he not have told Mahesh about it?
That’s about it.
- Hope Rhea is strong enough to go through this. She was already going through the barrage of insults and abuses. Now they are not going to let her go off that easily. Abetment charges take years to fight off but if found guilty then that’s it for her. On top of that, she was with Sushant since the lockdown started with no interference from anyone else other than a few of his friends so she is really deep in this.
Let justice prevail. Sushant’s family deserves closure too or else they will live their whole life wondering what happened!
A Different Move & Direction Now
For weeks now, the news channels have been debating the big bad world of Bollywood and now they are going to change their stance on this. From focusing on Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt, and Kangana Ranaut, all the focus will now be on Rhea, her family members and the business managers.
Let’s see if those who were the driving force behind this still stay on even though this is no longer a nepotism or Bollywood mafia issue. It’s a personal issue. Let’s see if they still find a way to make this their agenda.
The others who were in the focus before are probably going to breathe a sigh of relief!
We know you might think this is a joke but doesn’t all of this sound like a Bhatt film? Or maybe Abbas-Mustan since their movies also have a lot of twists and turns. 🤯
