Rhea Chakraborty has been named as an accused in the FIR filed by the CBI in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. A day after the Centre asked the agency to probe the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday registered a case against six persons, including Rhea Chakraborty and her family members, on the basis of the FIR filed by Bihar Police on his family's complaint.
The CBI has named Rhea, her father Indrajit Chakraborty, mother Sandhya Chakraborty, brother Showik Chkaraborty, Sushant's house manager Samuel Miranda, Shruti Modi and unknown others.
The Chakrabortys have been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code including abetment of suicide, criminal conspiracy, wrongful restraint/confinement, theft, criminal breach of trust, cheating and other offences.
Sushant was a director in three companies, two of which were along with his girlfriend Rhea and her brother Showik.
The third registered in Gurgaon did not involve the siblings. The three companies were set up fairly recently in the period between 2018 and 2020.
According to The Wiki Feed, Showik, 24, completed his early schooling from Army Public School in Ambala Cantt and Bombay Scottish School in Mahim, Mumbai. Post that, he went to Canada and enrolled himself at the Thompson Rivers University from where he graduated in finance.
A Twitter thread claims that Rhea’s father Indrajit is a doctor and is Head of Admin Kohinoor Hospitals. The hospital is owned by Manohar Joshi, ex Maharashtra CM, a prominent Shiv Sena leader.
Meanwhile, Rhea’s mother Sandhya is a homemaker.
The charges came after Sushant’s father K K Singh registered an FIR against the Chakrabortys in Patna accusing them of abetment to suicide and defrauding his son.
According to the FIR Rhea, her father Indrajit Chakraborty, mother Sandhya, sister Shruti, and brother Shaumil has alleged that Sushant had Rs 17 crore in his account but within months Rs 15 crore was transferred to accounts not linked to him. He even alleged that Rhea used to control Sushant's ATM and credit cards and money was deposited in the accounts of her family members. Sushant's account in Kotak Mahindra bank was emptied by her.
The allegations surfaced 45 days after Sushant’s demise (June 14).
