Sushant Sing Rajput's suicide case sees new developments each day. His suicide case has been moved to the CBI now and Rhea Chakraborty along with her family have been questioned. Yesterday, the actress told the Supreme Court that it could order a CBI probe into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's mysterious suicidal death. She had earlier requested the court to move the FIR filed by Sushant's father at Patna to Mumbai. Rhea, in her affidavit, recorded that the Bihar government illegally referred the Patna FIR for a probe by the CBI on the eve of SC hearing on her transfer petition. She said, "no objection if the Supreme Court refers the matter to CBI by its order." However, the actress said that even if the CBI investigated the case, the jurisdiction over the case would be that of a Mumbai court and not the Patna court.
Rhea Chakraborty also said that the case has been highly politicised by the Bihar government as the incident happened in the wake of Assembly elections. She also said that the case was purposely registered at Bihar because of interest shown by the Bihar chief minister. As per reports in the Times Of India, she said, "The issue of suicide of Rajput has been isolated and blown out of proportion. Actors Ashutosh Bhakre (32) and Sameer Sharma (44) were also reported to have committed suicide in last 30 days and yet not a whisper about these incidents (were heard in the same in power corridors). Incase of death of Rajput, CM of Bihar is reported to be responsible for registration of FIR in Patna."

She said that after the case was transferred to CBI, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) too swung into action and started questioning her for hours. Rhea said, "Investigation into financial scams of thousands of crores (of rupees) by ED & CBI never see the light of the day and at the drop of a hat, cases get registered even without there being a jurisdiction in the foundational case. Since the cause of action (Rajput's suicide) occurred in Mumbai, Bihar police had no jurisdition over the incident. Thus, the consent of Bihar under Section 6 of Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) Act is bad in law. Said consent is merely to render her transfer petition infructuous. Since the foundation for commencing the CBI probe was illegal, the inquiry initiated by ED too would fall foul of law." Rhea also questioned the intense media glare on her that violates her right to privacy. She said, "The issue is blown out of proportion in the media. Media channels are examining and cross-examining all the witnesses in the case. Petitioner is already convicted by the media even before a foul-play in the death of Rajput is established. Extreme trauma and infringement of privacy of the rights of the petitioner is caused due to constant sensationalization of this case."
She also said that earlier the media had done the same campaign convicting accused persons in the case relating to irregular allotment of 2G spectrum and the murder of Arushi Talwar and later both the accused were found innocent.
