Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde: “CBI should come out with its findings”

After four months of investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has urged the agency to come out with their findings.

His admission comes a day after Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh pushed for the CBI for answers.

Maneshinde said, “I welcome the statement of Shri Anil Deshmukh, Home Minister, Government of Maharashtra calling for the CBI to make the report public in the case of death of Sushant Singh Rajput. A hue and cry was made when the Mumbai Police took about 2 months into the investigations and the report remained to be made public. An FIR was filed in Patna making false allegations against Rhea Chakraborty and her family in July 2020. The Mumbai Police, ED, NCB and CBI including Patna Police have conducted investigations against Rhea. She was arrested in a bogus case with no evidence by NCB. She was harassed by various agencies and remained in custody for almost a month till the Bombay High Court released her on Bail.”

He added, “Rhea filed a FIR accusing the sisters of SSR administering him illegally obtained medicines without a proper medical advise and on the basis of a bogus prescription. She alleged that the cocktail of drugs and illegally administered medicines could be the cause of his death. It is more than six months since SSR died. I have always said that the truth will remain the same whoever investigates the case. Whatever may be the circumstances, the CBI should come out with its findings after 4 months of investigations by the premier investigating agency of the country. It is high time that there is a closure to this sad event.”

Rajput passed away in June 2020.
