SSR case: “Rhea Chakraborty was not allowed to attend Sushant’s funeral, name struck off from the list” states her lawyer Satish Manshinde
Rhea Chakraborty has been in the eye of storm ever since an FIR was lodged against her by Sushant Singh Rajput’s father in Patna.
Reports suggested that the actress has gone missing, however clarifying on the same Advocate Satish Maneshinde, who is representing the actress, had shared that she has always been living in Mumbai and that she was not allowed to attend Sushant’s funeral. “Rhea Chakraborty has always been living in Mumbai. She was in Mumbai on 14th June 2020. She was not allowed to attend the Funeral of Sushant Singh as her name was stuck off from the list of 20,” stated Satish Maneshinde.
Confirming that Rhea has recorded her statement with the Mumbai police, as and when summoned, the lawyer revealed, “She was summoned by Mumbai Police on 18th of June 2020 at Bandra Police Station.
Her statement was recorded there. Subsequently she was summoned to appear on 17th July 2020 at Santacruz Police station. She appeared and recorded her supplementary statement.”
Bihar police arrived in Mumbai for investigation after the FIR was lodged in Patna.
While Rhea moved the Supreme Court, seeking to transfer the probe from Patna to Mumbai into the FIR lodged against her. Her lawyer stated, “Later on when the Bihar Police came to Mumbai to investigate a case on the basis of an FIR registered at Patna, she approached the Supreme Court and filed a Transfer Petition on 30th July 2020 for Transfer of the Case to Mumbai in view of the Legal Position that A case registered beyond the jurisdiction of the local police station where the alleged incident has taken place can only record a “ Zero FIR “ and transfer it for investigation to Mumbai where the criminal law has already been set in motion. The Bihar Police has no jurisdiction to investigate the case legally and otherwise.”
