Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14. Ever since then the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are jointly investigating his death case. Over the last three months, we have seen several twists and turns in the late actor’s death probe. We recently had even come across reports of a witness claiming to have seen Sushant and Rhea meet on June 13.
The latest reports suggest that Rhea’s neighbour, who claimed about this eyewitness having seen SSR meet the actress on June 13, has been warned by CBI. Read on to know the details.
A few days back according to a report by Republic TV, revealing what the eyewitness had told her, Rhea’s neighbour had said, “Sushant dropped Rhea off around 6-6:30 pm. And Sushant was driving alone and there was no driver. The person (eyewitness) told me this in June itself before any of this had gone to CBI or even before Rhea had said anything. The person had said, ‘Oh! he passed away, I had just seen him drop her off on 13th evening.’ Nothing was known at that time that what else will come up. I have not seen anything and yes, I am Rhea’s neighbour.”
Now the latest report in India Today states that the CBI has warned Rhea’s neighbour Dimple Thawani as she refused to reveal the identity of the person who told her about SSR and Rhea’s alleged meeting.
The same report states that CBI interrogated Dimple on Sunday (Oct 11) and while she continued to claim that someone had told her that Sushant dropped Rhea on June 13, however, she couldn’t divulge any further details about the eyewitness or the incident. Now CBI has asked Dimple to refrain from saying anything which she cannot verify.
Speaking about these reports, Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde told Mumbai Mirror that the actress would be taking legal action against everyone who is trying to defame her. “The neighbour claims she is an SSR fan and believes she is his soulmate due to a past life connection. She claims that someone told her that SSR dropped RC home on the 13th. It’s a baseless rumour by a fan who is part of the media circus and wants to share the limelight with others who claim to know SSR,” Maneshinde told the tabloid.
Even Rhea’s mother reacting to these reports had told TOI that CBI can easily crosscheck the neighbour’s claim by checking SSR’s cell phone location on June 13.
