Rhea Chakraborty may be taken into custody: Sushant Singh Rajput's family lawyer

Professional rivalry angle is set to resurface again when the CBI starts its investigation on the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing the later actor’s family, said, “Professional rivalry will be part of the investigation, we have not left it. We didn’t impress upon it so much as we did not have direct information about it.”

When asked if there is a chance of custodial interrogation of Rhea as the case is with the CBI now, Singh said, “There is a certain chance of her being taken into custody for questioning as she is the prime accused in the case.”

The excerpts of a chat that Rhea had with filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt after leaving Sushant’s house has been circulating; it shows that she had walked out of the house rather than told by the actor to leave. Singh said, “She has said just the opposite in her statement, where she said that Sushant had asked her to leave the house. This is damaging for her. I wonder who has leaked the chat.” Is she trying to shift the blame? “She cannot shift the blame. If she is going to shift blame in this manner, it is going to implicate her more.”
