Mumbai: Actress Rhea Chakraborty, accused of abetting the suicide of her actor boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, on Monday urged the CBI to take motion towards her neighbour for giving “false” statements to the media to misled the investigation within the case. In a letter addressed to Nupur Sharma, heading the CBI’s particular crew, Chakraborty mentioned her neighbour Dimple Thawani had falsely claimed that Rajput had dropped her (Chakraborty) to her home in suburban Mumbai in his automotive on June 13, a day earlier than he was discovered hanging at his residence in Bandra.
“Dimple Thawani made false and bogus allegations against me knowing them to be false and misled the investigation. The allegation was that Sushant Singh Rajput had dropped me to my house in his car on June 13, which is false,” Chakraborty mentioned within the letter issued by her lawyer Satish Maneshinde. Thawani didn’t reply when contacted.
“I say that such a conduct makes out a prima facie case punishable under sections 203 (giving false information about an alleged offence) and 211 (false charge of offence) of the Indian Penal Code which is punishable with seven years imprisonment,” the letter mentioned. Chakraborty and her members of the family had been booked by Bihar Police for allegedly driving Rajput to suicide earlier than the case was transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
She was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in September in reference to a medication case arising out of the investigation into Rajput loss of life case. Chakraborty was granted bail by the Bombay High Court final week.
