Mumbai: Ahead of the hearing in Supreme Court on Rhea Chakraborty’s plea seeking the transfer of KK Singh’s FIR to Mumbai, new Whatsapp messages from the late actor’s father to his son’s live-in partner Rhea and manager Shruti Modi have now come to light.
In the message sent at 12.34 pm on November 29, 2019, Singh had asked Rhea to share the details of his son’s ongoing medical treatment. “Jab tum jan gaee ki hum Sushant ka papa hun to baat kyu nahi ki. Aakhir baat kya hai. Friend bankar uska dekhbhal aur uska elaj karba rahi ho to mera bhi farj banta hai ki Sushant ke bare me jankari mujhe bhi rahe. Esliye call kar mujhe bhi sari jankari do,” he wrote.
He had even expressed a desire to come to Mumbai and asked for his tickets to be booked. “Ab tum bat nahi kar rahi ho to main Mumbai jana chahta hun. Fli ka ticket bhek do,” read a line in the message to Shruti.
The TOI report, however, said that it was not known whether the messages were acknowledged by Rhea or Shruti.
The revelation comes weeks after Singh filed an FIR with Bihar Police, accusing Rhea, her father Indrajit Chakraborty, her mother Sandhya Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty, Samuel Miranda and Shruti of ‘abetment to suicide’ and siphoning off Rs 15 crore from his son’s account, besides holding him captive.
The CBI is now probing the case and has filed an FIR against six persons, including Rhea.
The ED has also registered a money-laundering case in the matter and has summoned all the accused to unravel the financial aspect in the case.
