Sushant's death a 'repeat of Aarushi Talwar murder case', says Rhea's lawyer; no proof of murder yet: Report
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: In a shocking allegation, actress Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer Satish Maneshinde today said that the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput was a "repeat" of the Arushi Talwar murder case of 2008 where the "parents accused the entire world and we know who was prosecuted", reported News18.
The report further quoted Maneshinde saying that it is for Sushant's family to explain what happened between June 8 and 14 when Rhea Chakraborty left the late actor's Bandra residence.
Sushant's father, in the police complaint filed against Rhea and her family, has accused the actress of mentally harassing his son, siphoning off his money and abetting his suicide. However, the late actor's girlfriend has denied all the allegations and has instead claimed that the actor had mental health issues and did not share cordial relations with his family, particularly his father.
Meanwhile, the report also quoted CBI sources saying that there is no proof yet to suggest the death of Sushant was a case of murder or homicide. Sources said that crime scene reconstruction and witness statements have nowhere suggested that this could be a murder.
While the FIR lodged against Rhea and her family has no mention of murder charges, the CBI is investigating all possible angles into the actor's death.
The central probe agency has already questioned Rhea for over 35 hours, along with several other people including her brother Showik, Sushant's flatmate Siddharth Pithani, his manager Miranda Samuel, domestic helps Neeraj and Keshav.
The CBI is also questioning Rhea's father today about the financial links of his daughter with Sushant. The CBI source also said that the agency will question him about how he knew Sushant, since when his daughter was in relation with the late actor and how they were planning for making investments.The source said that the CBI team will also question him if he knew about the medical treatment of Sushant and whether he ever visited the doctor with Sushant and his daughter. He will also be asked questions about the incidents that happened during last year's Europe trip.
