The FIR in Patna was registered by Sushant’s father against Rhea and others for alleged offenses under various articles of the Indian Penal Code, including 306 (incitement to suicide), 341 (punishment for forcible confinement), 342 (punishment for forcible confinement), 380 (theft from a dwelling), 406 (sanction for criminal breach of trust) and 420 (cheating and dishonest incitement to hand over property).
During the hearing in this case, Rhea told SC that the Bihar Police FIR in this case was “completely illegal” and that the state had no jurisdiction to refer the matter to the CBI. The 28-year-old actress, however, also told the Supreme Court that she had no objection to the case being transferred to the CBI.
“Comments made at the last Supreme Court hearing on August 11, 2020 clearly show that this has become more a matter of politics than truth. Unwanted and irrelevant observations are made. The number of politicians taking advantage of this case on the eve of the elections in Bihar, ”Rhea said in a statement Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the government of Bihar has dismissed Rhea’s accusations and claimed that he has the legal right to file the FIR and that the government of Bihar is following the law in calling for a CBI investigation into the case of Sushant’s death. .
“After determining the cause of death, any further investigation can only be carried out after the registration of the FIR. The Mumbai police have not registered any FIR and their investigation is neither valid nor legal, ”the government of Bihar told the Supreme Court.
“It is evident that it is due to political pressure in Maharashtra that neither the FIR has been registered by the Mumbai police nor has it cooperated with the Bihar police in fulfilling their obligation to conduct promptly investigated, ”the government of Bihar noted, adding that the Bihar police officers who had gone to Mumbai to investigate this matter were not treated well by their counterparts in Mumbai.
