"Satyamev Jayate. The truth shall prevail," Rhea concluded in the video, which is available on the official Instagram handle of celebrity photographer Viral Bhayani.
Earlier this week, Sushant's suicide case took a dramatic turn after it came to light that the late actor's father KK Singh has filed an FIR in Patna accusing six people, including Rhea, for abetment to suicide. The actress has received widespread flak ever since.
Sushant and Rhea were in a relationship before the actor's alleged suicide on June 14. Sushant's father has levelled several allegations against Rhea, including syphoning money from his son's account and also threatening to disclose his medical reports to the media if he carried out his plan of quitting acting and taking up farming in Coorg. Sushant's kin has also accused Rhea of keeping him away from his family.
In a major development, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a case of money laundering over transactions worth Rs 15 crore related to the alleged suicide of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. An ED official said that it has registered a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002.
The development comes amid the complaint of K.K. Singh, father of Sushant Singh Rajput, to Bihar Police against actress Rhea Chakraborty. The ED has named Rhea and her family members in the case on the basis of the Bihar Police FIR. The official said that in the coming days the agency will summon a number of people for questioning in the case.
Earlier, a meeting was held at Bihar DGP Gupteshwat Pandey's office in Patna on the investigation being conducted by the Bihar Police team in Mumbai in the case. A four member team of the Bihar Police is in Mumbai in connection with the case.
The ED on Thursday sought details of the FIR registered against Rhea by the Bihar Police and the details of two companies owned by Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea's family from the banks. The ED has also sought details of the financial transactions of Vividrage Rhealityx, in which Rhea is a director, and Front India For World, in which her brother Showik is a director, the source added.
