Bihar Minister calls Rhea Chakraborty a ‘supari killer’

Rhea Chakraborty Sushant

Patna, July 31 : Politics over the alleged suicide of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput continues unabated, with Bihar Minister Maheshwar Hazari calling actress Rhea Chakraborty a contract killer and a venomous snake woman.

Expresssing his doubts on the suicide theory, the Minister said that it seemed to be a “case of murder, and not suicide”.

He alleged that Rhea is not only a ‘supari’ (contract) killer but was like Bollywood’s version of a ‘vishkanya’ who killed Sushant by trapping him in her love.

Hazari said that Rhea was sent to Sushant under a conspiracy. “I don’t know how many people will die in the pursuit of fulfilling their ambitions. Such contract killers should be acted upon as soon as possible,” the Minister said.

He alleged that no investigation had so far been conducted by the Mumbai Police into the death of Rajput, adding that the Bihar government was considering a high-level inquiry.

Sushant Singh Rajput, who hailed from Patna, had allegedly committed suicide on June 14 at his flat in Mumbai. After this, Sushant’s father K.K. Singh lodged a case at the Rajiv Nagar police station on July 25, accusing Rhea and others of cheating and extorting money from Sushant.

Patna, Aug 4 : The Bihar government on Tuiesday recommended a CBI inquiry into the alleged suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Kumar Saturday said that he was open to recommending the CBI probe into Sushant’s death if the late actor’s father requests the state government for it.

Sushant’s family on Tuesday made a formal request to the Bihar government through their lawyer Vikas Singh that a CBI probe should be ordered in the case.

“The DGP spoke to Sushant Singh Rajput’s father this morning and he gave consent for CBI inquiry. So now, we are recommending CBI probe in the matter,” Bihar CM Nitish Kumar told ANI.

Sushant’s father Krishna Kumar Singh (74), who resides in Patna, had last month lodged a complaint with the Bihar Police against actress Rhea Chakraborty, her family members and six others for abetment to suicide of his son and fraud. Singh has accused Chakraborty, the purported girlfriend of Rajput, of having befriended his son in May 2019 with the intention of furthering her own career.

He also wanted a police investigation to ascertain where the Rs 15 crore deposited in a bank account held by Sushant was transferred. However, the investigation has flared into a tug of war between the Bihar and Mumbai Police. Amid escalating acrimony between Mumbai and Bihar police over jurisdictional issues, an IPS officer who had landed in Mumbai on Sunday for leading the SIT probe in the case, was quarantined under the COVID-19 regulations in force in the city, a development Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar called “inappropriate and forcible”.

Bihar police chief Gupteshwar Pandey said in Patna that the state police would lodge a formal protest with the Mumbai municipal authorities over the “forcible quarantine” of Vinay Tiwari who was on official duty.

The issue resonated in the two Houses of Bihar legislature, with lawmakers across the political divide demanding a CBI investigation into the death of the 34-year-old Patna-born actor.

Both Mumbai and Patna police are probing the case parallelly.

IPS officer under house arrest on pretext of quarantine: Bihar DGP

Gupteshwar Pandey IPS

Patna, Aug 4 : Expressing his displeasure over what he called non-cooperation of Mumbai Police in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey claimed that IPS officer Vinay Tiwari was put under house arrest in Mumbai on the pretext of quarantine.

Tiwari was ‘quarantined’ by the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation on Sunday night after he arrived in the metropolis regarding the investigations into the Rajput case. The IPS officer from the Bihar cadre is heading a team of state police investigating the case.

Speaking to IANS, Pandey alleged that the Mumbai Police was “not cooperating” with Bihar Police in the probe into the alleged suicide case of the Bollywood actor and was “speaking the language of actress Rhea Chakraborty” who has been blamed by the bereaved family for the death of Rajput.

“Mumbai Police is parroting Rhea Chakraborty’s stand. She is saying Bihar Police can’t investigate the case and the Mumbai Police is supporting her contention,” Pandey remarked.

“There is a certain respect that is due to an IPS officer. What message does the Mumbai Police want to convey to junior officials? They go like thieves and put an officer under house arrest. A few days ago, one of our officers was shoved and forced to sit in a prisoners’ van. I denied all this to the media to save the reputation of the Mumbai Police. But this did happen as all saw the incident.”

“We are trying to bring out the truth in the case. We too are adamant that we will not let the matter rest,” the Director General of Police said.

The Bihar DGP said that the situation was so bad now in Mumbai that he was sure to be put under house arrest if he visited the metropolis to clear up things.

Pandey claimed that he had tried many a times to talk to the Mumbai Police chief but his calls had not been received. Nor has there been any revert from Mumbai Police, he added.

“A day after Rajput’s body was found in his Mumbai flat, I tried to talk to Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh, but he did not take the call. He also did not call back. I even sent a WhatsApp message, but there was no reply.”

The Bihar DGP said he had tried to call up again on Monday, but in vain. “We are now waiting for the Supreme Court to decide the issue. The investigations in the case can’t be done without cooperation between the Bihar and Mumbai Police.”

He alleged that the Mumbai Police was not even ready to show them the post-mortem report, CCTV footage, ‘panchnama’, forensic lab report etc regarding the case.

Rs 50 cr withdrawn from Sushant’s account, but Mumbai Police silent on crucial lead: Bihar DGP

New Delhi, Aug 3 : The ongoing war of words between Mumbai Police and Bihar Police took a turn for the worse on Monday after Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) Gupteshwar Pandey questioned the Mumbai Police as to why they did not investigate the money trail while probing the suicide of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

“In the past four years, around Rs 50 crore was credited to the bank account of Sushant Singh Rajput but surprisingly all of it was withdrawn. In one year, Rs 17 crore was credited to his account, out of which Rs 15 crore was withdrawn. Isn’t this a crucial point to be investigated? We are not going to sit quite. We will question them(Mumbai Police) as to why such leads are hushed up,” a visibly perturbed DGP told the media.

Earlier on Sunday, the Bihar Police chief had reacted strongly when his subordinate Vinay Tiwari, an SP rank officer, was quarantined by the Mumbai municipal authorities.

“Instead of sharing evidence or handing over the postmortem and forensic reports of Sushant, they (Mumbai) have almost house arrested our SP. I have not seen such non-cooperation by any other state police. If the Mumbai Police are sincere in their approach, they should share the investigation with us,” said Pandey, considered as one of the most outspoken serving top cops.

On Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakaraborty’s role in the suicide case, the DGP said that she is an accused in the FIR registered by the deceased’s father in Patna.

“Let me remind everyone that Rhea is an accused. We are collecting evidence against her. Once sufficient evidence is collected by our police, we will arrest her. But of course we will be transparent in our investigation. Our police officers are in Mumbai not to hush up any lead, but to dig out more facts and evidence,” senior IPS officer Pandey told a prominent Hindi news channel.

Meanwhile, senior Shiv Sena leader and MP Sanjay Raut said that if Mumbai Police are compelled to take “gyan” from Bihar Police, then they better shut their office.

Reacting to Raut’s statement, DGP Pandey said that he did not want to get involved in the ongoing politics over the suicide case, but “if they (Mumbai Police) are so competent in policing, then why haven’t they found any breakthrough in the case so far”.

Why are the police not investigating the financial angle? Why are they silent on this front,” the police chief asked, adding, “I am not raising these questions based on any presumption. We have documentary evidence for all the financial aspects of this case.”

With Bihar Police raising questions over the investigation into Sushant’s case by the Mumbai Police, Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh spoke to the media in a bid to clear the air.

The commissioner revealed that as of now, the statements of 56 witnesses have been recorded. He also ruled out any alleged party being thrown at the actor’s residence in Bandra the night before he committed suicide on June 14.
