Mumbai: Late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father K.K. Singh had tried to contact his son’s live-in partner Rhea Chakraborty to know the details of his son’s ongoing medical treatment at that time, WhatsApp messages shared with the media showed.
The actress, who is now the prime accused in the death case of Sushant, did not respond to any of the messages.
Besides Rhea, Sushant’s father also tried to connect with his son’s former manager Shruti Modi and even she did not revert back to him. Modi is a co-accused in the case filed by Singh at a Patna police station on July 25. She was also both Sushant and Rhea’s manager.
The ED and the CBI are probing the death of the late actor, who was found hanging in his Bandra flat in Mumbai on June 14 on the complaint of Singh filed at the Rajeev Nagar police station. Sushant and his family hail from Purnea district in Bihar.
Both the agencies have taken over the probe on the basis of the Bihar Police FIR.
Singh in his message to Rhea at 12.34 p.m. on November 29 last year asked her to share the details of his son’s treatment.
In the message to Rhea, Singh said, “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 (When you have come to know that its Sushant’s father then why don’t you speak to me. What is the reason. If you are getting Sushant treated being a friend then it is also my responsibility to know the details. Therefore call me and share all the information).”
The revelations come in the backdrop of regular questioning of Rhea and her family members besides Modi, and other associated with Sushant by the ED.
