Actress Rhea Chakraborty is not seeking anticipatory bail in Patna, her lawyer has clarified.
There was a report doing the rounds in sections of the media that suggested that the actress might apply for bail in a civil court in Patna.
When IANS reached out to Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde to check if it is true, he responded with a message saying, “No”.
Rhea Chakraborty’s boyfriend, actor Sushant Singh Rajput, was found dead in his home in Mumbai on June 14. The late actor’s family subsequently filed an FIR against Rhea and her family alleging abetment to suicide among other charges.
The Supreme Court transferred the case to CBI earlier this week.
On August 6, after a recommendation by the Bihar government, the CBI had taken over the probe into the death of the 34-year-old actor on the orders of the Central government following an FIR lodged by the deceased’s father at Patna’s Rajiv Nagar police station.
The case was registered against Rhea Chakraborty, her father Indrajit, mother Sandhya, brother Showik, Sushant’s ex-manager Shruti Modi and flatmate Samuel Miranda and unknown persons on the basis of Sushant’s father K.K. Singh’s complaint that was filed on July 25.
Meanwhile, the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is probing a money laundering case involving the death of the actor, on Friday recorded the statement of his sister Priyanka Singh in Delhi.
