New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: In yet another twist in the sensational Sushant Singh Rajput death case, a fresh WhatsApp chat now indicates that the late actor’s knew about his mental health issue.

According to a NDTV report, the chat shows a conversation between Sushant and his sister Priyannka about the former’s treatment and the medicines he was taking.

In the police complaint filed in Patna against Rhea and her family, Sushant’s father had claimed that they were unaware about Sushant’s alleged mental health issues. He had also said that his son was being treated without the family’s knowledge.

However, the WhatsApp chat shows that the actor was being prescribed medication by his family without being examined by a doctor.

Rhea is on the focus of the investigation carried out in the case by three central probe agencies - the CBI, Enforcement Directorate and Narcotics Bureau. Sushant's family has accused Rhea of mentally harassing Sushant and siphoning money from his bank accountsm along with her alleged role in her death. 

The NCB is probing the drug angle in the case based on the “deleted WhatsApp messages” obtained by the ED, allegedly indicating dealings in banned drugs from her phone. 

Rajput’s family lawyer Vikas Singh said the late actor may have been given banned drugs by his girlfriend Chakraborty without his knowledge in order to “control his mind” and “manipulate” him.

Rhea has denied all the allegations leveled agianst her and has alleged that the actor did not share cordial relations with his father and sisters. The actress had left the Sushant's residence - where the two lived together - on June 8, just six days before the actor was found dead.
