After Sushant Singh Rajput's father KK Singh levelled various allegations against actress Rhea Chakraborty - including taking money from his son and also threatening to disclose his medical reports with the media, she moved to the Supreme Court, seeking transfer of investigation from Patna to Mumbai. Rhea told the Supreme Court that she has been falsely implicated in the FIR registered against her by Rajput's father and brother-in-law OP Singh, ADG Haryana Police.
In her petition to the SC, Rhea also alleged that OP Singh 'pressurised' Sushant’s friend Siddharth Pithani to raise questions about her, reported India Today. She added that Siddharth wrote an e-mail to Mumbai Police about the incident where he received a conference phone call on July 22 from Sushant's brother-in-law and sister Mitu Singh, asking details about Rhea and her expenses. The e-mail further read that Pithani received another call on July 27 from OP Singh to give a statement to Bihar Police against Rhea.
After Pithani's name surfaced in Rhea's petition to SC, several Twitterati questioned his connections to the couple and shared conspiracy theories.
Here's all we know about Siddharth Pithani - Sushant Singh Rajput's 'friend' who was 'pressurised to raise questions about' Rhea Chakraborty?
According to Sushant Singh Rajput's sister Meetu Singh's statement, Siddharth Pitani was the late actor's 'roommate'.
During her interrogation with the Bihar Police team, which arrived in Mumbai to probe the death of Sushant Singh Rajput following an FIR by his father, Meetu made some important revelations.
According to a report, Sushant Singh Rajput's sister Meetu told the cops that her brother's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty had called her on June 8, six days before the tragic death, to inform her that she had an argument with Rajput. Post the argument, Rhea reportedly left the Bandra apartment and Meetu stayed with Sushant for four days, before returning to her residence on June 12. Two days later, Singh got a call from Sushant's 'roommate' Siddharth Pathani who informed her that he was not opening the door.
Picture credits of Rhea's Instagram photos state that they were clicked by Siddharth Pithani.
Rhea Chakraborty informed the top court that she was in a live-in relationship with Sushant till June 8. Several pictures and videos on her Instagram page were taken by Pithani, which suggests that he was living the couple.
