Rhea Chakraborty has filed a complaint in the Supreme Court stating that she’s being made a scapegoat in the case. She alleged that the case made against her in the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput is raked up for Bihar polls. The actress also said that media trials in Sushant’s case are unfair. Rhea added that the Bihar police had filed the FIR against her without any jurisdiction.

Rhea, in her fresh petition before the Supreme Court, said that the issue has been blown out of proportion in the media and alleged that the news channels are examining and cross-examining all the witnesses in the case. She said that the petitioner (Rhea Chakraborty) is already convicted by media even before a fowl-play in the death of Sushant Singh Rajput is established. Extreme trauma and infringement of privacy of the rights of the petitioner are caused due to constant sensationalisation of this case.

It said that the media had also convicted the accused in 2G and Arushi Talwar case in a similar fashion and each and every accused was, later on, found innocent by the courts. Actor Rhea Chakraborty on Monday filed a fresh plea in the Supreme Court over the alleged unfair media trial against her in connection with the case related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.

The plea said targeting the probe in the death case by the two probe agencies that the investigation into financial scams of thousands of crores by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) never sees the light of the day, and a drop of a hat, cases get registered even without there being a jurisdiction in the foundational case.

The CBI had last week registered an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, Indrajit Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty, Showik Chakraborty, Samuel Miranda, Shruti Modi, and others in the case. The ED has also registered a case in the matter. The central government had earlier accepted Bihar government’s recommendation for a probe by the CBI in the matter.

The Supreme Court is slated to hear on Tuesday Rhea Chakraborty’s earlier plea seeking to transfer the probe in a case against her in connection with the death of Sushant Singh Rajput from Patna to Mumbai. Rajput was found dead at his Bandra apartment in Mumbai on June 14.
