Meanwhile, Supreme Court lawyer Sarthak Nayak has filed a petition in Bombay High Court appealing to the Chief Justice to transfer Sushant’s case to SIT.
Nayak also stated that as the incident took place in Mumbai, the enquiry should be done here.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty with the Patna police, alleging that she exploited and cheated on his son, compelling him to take the drastic step.
Soon, Rhea hired the most expensive lawyer of Mumbai to apply for an anticipatory bail in the case.
The case is now being investigated by both Patna police and Mumbai police.
