Truth shall prevail, says Rhea Chakraborty

Truth shall prevail, says Rhea Chakraborty

New Delhi, July 31(UNI) Even as Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday registered a case under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and others in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, the actress said that "Truth shall prevail".

In a video released by her lawyers, Rhea Chakraborty, accused by Sushant Singh Rajput's family of cheating and harassment, said, 'I have immense faith in God and the judiciary. I believe that I will get justice. Even though a lot of horrible things are being said about me on the electronic media, I refrain from commenting on the advice of my lawyers as the matter is sub-judice.'

"Satyameva jayate, the truth shall prevail," she added.

Sushant Singh Rajput's father had earlier this week filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, accusing her of transferring money from his account and also mentally harassing him.

The allegations are being investigated by the Bihar police.

It was Rhea's first public response to the allegations leveled against her.

The video was released on a day a video of her comments to friends went viral on Social media.

Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14.

Rhea Chakraborty, who was reportedly dating him, is among some 40 people questioned by the Mumbai police, which is investigating allegations that Sushant Singh Rajput was suffering from depression and had been pushed over the edge after being sidelined in the film industry because of nepotism and cliques.

The Bihar police started a parallel investigation after the actor's family filed a case in Patna.

Sushant Singh’s father had lodged a police complaint against Ms Chakraborty, a struggling film actress, her family members and six others on charges of alleged abetment to suicide of his son, accusing Chakraborty of having befriended his son in May 2019 with the intention of furthering her own career.

This investigation is focused on charges that money was transferred from Sushant Singh Rajput's bank account.

Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday registered a case under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Rhea Chakraborty and others in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.

ED’s move comes a day after it sought details from Bihar Police about the FIR lodged by late Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh against Ms Chakraborty and a few others on Thursday.

The officials said Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR), an equivalent to the police FIR, has been registered in the case related to the death of the actor and alleged irregularities being suspected to have been committed to divert finances belonging to the deceased actor.

The agency will probe allegations of alleged mishandling of Rajput’s money and his bank accounts. The agency will probe if anyone used Rajput’s income for money laundering and creating illegal assets,” an official in the investigating agency said.

The Supreme Court is likely to hear on August 5 Rhea Chakraborty's petition asking for the Bihar FIR to be transferred to Mumbai. She had earlier posted an appeal on social media urging Home Minister Amit Shah to order a CBI investigation.
