Sensing foul play of a planned murder of Sushant Singh Rajput, his family had filed an FIR against his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty. With each passing day, Sushant's case seems to be getting even more complicated with the different theories and stories of every person related to him. While the truth has gone with the actor himself, his family is left fighting for justice for Sushant. Rhea had applied at the Supreme Court for the transfer of Sushant's case from Patna police to Mumbai and had said in her petition that she is in deep trauma due to her boyfriend's suicide which got multiplied with the death and rape threats and the constant media scrutiny on her regarding the case.
Rhea Chakraborty had informed the court that she was in a live-in relationship with Sushant Singh Rajput till June 8, 2020, and had claimed that he was on anti-depressants due to depression. Rhea added in her plea, "In peculiar facts and circumstances of the present case, the petitioner has been falsely implicated in the present case filed by at the instance of Krishna Kishore Singh. He committed suicide on the morning of June 14 at his Bandra residence by hanging himself. The petitioner was summoned and she had visited the Bandra police station on various occasions and her statement was recorded under Section 175 of CrPC. The petitioner has filed a complaint at Santa Cruz police station in Mumbai against the death and rape threats. It would be just and expedient, if the transfer of the case is directed from Patna to Mumbai."
In an interview with the Times Now, Sushant Singh Rajput's family friend, Nilotpal Mrinal made some serious allegations against Rhea Chakraborty and Mahesh Bhatt. Nilotpal questioned Rhea's earnings with the number of films she has given till date and the way she maintains herself. Nilotpal added, “If Sushant bhai was not keeping well, why did she not tell Sushant’s family about his situation? Rhea Chakraborty was not married to Sushant Singh Rajput. Despite informing his family members, she changed her number. She never let Sushant bhai get connected with his family."

Speaking about the charges on Rhea Chakraborty, apart from the abetment to suicide, in the FIR, Nilotpal Mrinal continued, “She took everything…laptop, jewellery, cash, medical records and whatever else was kept at Sushant’s residence. She further blocked Sushant’s number….how can you take someone’s laptop? How can you threaten?” When asked why did the family not mention Rhea Chakraborty during the interrogation by Mumbai police, Nilotpal said that Sushant and his father used to speak for just five times in a year that too for not more than two minutes. He added, “What do you think about the mental condition of a father whose son has died and has just visited the cremation ground? Will he just start levelling allegations against someone? They (Sushant’s family) took time and collected the evidence. The family did not lodge an FIR in Mumbai."
A Mumbai Mirror report suggests that Rhea Chakraborty's friend, Siddharth Pithani, who was earlier interrogated by Mumbai Police had claimed that he was pressurised by Sushant Singh Rajput's family to speak against her. On the other hand, Sushant's sister, Mitu Singh claimed that the actor had a huge fight with Rhea on June 8 and the domestic help of his house had also informed her about Rhea performing black magic a few months back.
