Rhea Chakraborty Not Missing, Hasn't Got Summons From Bihar Cops: Lawyer

Rhea Chakraborty has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking transfer of the case to Mumbai

Mumbai:

Actor Rhea Chakraborty's advocate on Monday refuted Bihar Polices claim that she was "missing", and said till date she has not received any summons from them in connection with the case of actor-friend Sushant Singh Rajput's death.

The Bihar Police last week lodged an FIR against Ms Chakraborty for allegedly abetting Sushant Rajput's suicide.

The complaint was filed by Mr Rajput's father KK Singh against Ms Chakraborty and other members of her family.

The Bihar Police earlier said their team had failed to locate Rhea Chakraborty.

However, her advocate Satish Maneshinde in a statement said, "The contention of Bihar police that Rhea Chakraborty is missing is not correct. Till today, no notice or summons has been received by her from the Bihar police."

Ms Chakraborty's statement has already been recorded by the Mumbai Police, Mr Maneshinde said.

"She has cooperated with the police as and when called, the statement said.

Mr Maneshinde in the statement reiterated that the Bihar Police do not have jurisdiction to probe the case and hence, Rhea Chakraborty has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking transfer of the case to Mumbai.

Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his apartment on June 14.

Till now, the Mumbai Police have recorded statements of 56 people, including Mr Rajput's sisters, Rhea Chakraborty and some other film personalities.

A Bihar Police team is also in Mumbai for probing the ''abetment to suicide'' case on the basis of a complaint filed by the late actor's father in Patna.
