Rhea writes to CBI: In her letter to team probing Sushant Singh Rajput death case, Rhea Chakraborty wrote that late actor’s neighbour Dimple Thawani made false and bogus allegations against her.
New Delhi: Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty on Monday dashed off a letter to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) demanding probe and action against those who made fake and unsubstantiated claims against her for 2-minute fame and glory on electronic media.
In her letter to CBI team probing Sushant Singh Rajput death case, she wrote that late actor’s neighbour Dimple Thawani made false and bogus allegations against her, knowing them to be false to mislead the investigation in the case.
“Dimple Thawani, made patently false and bogus allegations against me knowing them to be false, to mislead the investigation in the case. The allegation was that the late Sushant Singh Rajput had dropped me to my residence in his car on June 13, 2020, which is utterly false,” the letter said.
She said that she has forwarded a recording of the same to the CBI and has requested it to take cognizance of the same and initiate appropriate action according to the law.
“I was interrogated for more than five days by the CBI in connection with the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. During the investigation, several media channels carried false and bogus stories without any material to substantiate these patently false and fabricated claims in order to achieve their own ends,” the letter said.
“The said conduct makes out a prima facie case punishable under Section 203 and 211 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), 1860, one of which is punishable with imprisonment for a minimum of seven years. The said offences are serious and the allegations were made on a news channel without any basis. I am forwarding a recording of the same,” she said.
Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai residence on June 14.
