‘Truth will prevail’; Rhea Chakraborty breaks her silence on

Actor Rhea Chakraborty on Friday said that she has faith in the judiciary and she will get justice. Sushant Singh Rajput's family filed an FIR against her in various sections including abetment of suicide in connection with the late actor’s death case.

In a video statement, the actor refrained from commenting "horrible things" being said against her in the electronic media saying that the matter is sub judice.

"I have immense faith in God and the judiciary. I believe that I will get justice. Even though horrible things are being said about me in the electronic media. I refrain from commenting on the advice of my lawyers as the matter is sub judice. Satyamev Jayate. The truth shall prevail," Chakraborty said with folded handed and she can see crying in the video.

An FIR was filed by Rajput's father KK Singh against Chakraborty in Bihar under several sections including abetment of suicide.

Days after Rajput's death, Chakraborty said she was the "girlfriend" of the 'Dil Bechara' actor while requesting a CBI inquiry in the case.

Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14.

Chakraborty has also approached the Supreme Court for transfer of investigation to Mumbai in the FIR registered against her in Patna.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which investigates money laundering and foreign exchange violations, on Friday registered a case against Rhea Chakraborty and some members of her family in connection with the death of Rajput.

The ED case, registered under the prevention of money laundering act (PMLA), is based on a Bihar police FIR filed Tuesday on the basis of a complaint by Rajput’s father KK Rajput.

The officials said that Chakraborty, Rajput’s girlfriend and an actress herself, is likely to be summoned for questioning next week by the ED.

Mumbai police have so far recorded statements of around 40 people, including those of Rajput’s family and his cook.

Rajput’s former girlfriend, TV actor Ankita Lokhande, said the actor had an admirable zest for life and that she cannot believe that he died by suicide.
