In a stunning new revelation, Sushant Singh Rajput’s former girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande has submitted evidence against Rhea Chakraborty. Sushant dated Ankita Lokhande for six years between 2010 and 2016 after falling in love on the sets of the popular TV show ‘Pavitra Rishta’. Bihar police interrogated Lokhande on Wednesday, 29 July in the ongoing Rajput suicide investigation, where she revealed details of her conversation with the late actor.
It was during the release of her film ‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’ in 2019 that Sushant had spent time talking to her. In those conversations, Rajput opened up about his relationship with Rhea Chakraborty and became very emotional. According to the DNA report, Sushant told Ankita that he is “quite unhappy in the relationship and wants to end it as Rhea harassed him”. It is believed that Ankita had also met with Shweta Singh Kirti and had shown her those personal chats. The Bihar police have taken these chat conversations between Ankita and Sushant as evidence in the actors’ suicide investigation.
Lokhande’s revelations come a day after Sushant’s father, Krishna Kumar Singh, filed a First Incident Report (FIR) against Rhea Chakraborty citing allegations of theft, exploitation and other charges.
Chakraborty subsequently filed a petition with the Supreme Court to move the investigation to Mumbai. The KK Singh FIR allegations include that that “Rs 15 crore was transferred from Sushant’s bank account to an unknown account in a year.” It also states that “Sushant’s credit cards and bank accounts were run by Rhea Chakraborty and her family. On 8 June, Rhea left with Sushant’s cash, jewellery, ATM cards, laptop etc”. The FIR also states that “Rhea had Sushant’s medical records and threatened to make them public”.
In response to Chakraborty’s petition, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family responded by filing a caveat in the Supreme Court to prevent Chakraborty’s petition to be heard in court. The Quint confirmed this news after speaking to Sushant’s father’s lawyer Vikas Singh.
