Actress Ankita Lokhande, ex-girlfriend of Sushant Singh Rajput, had reportedly informed Bihar Police that the late actor was quite unhappy because Rhea Chakraborty harassed him.
Ankita made her claim while she was visiting Sushant's family in Patna, a report in news18.com stated.

Sushant dated Ankita, his co-star of the hit TV series "Pavitra Rishta", for almost six years after which they parted ways. After Sushant's demise in June, Ankita had visited the actor's family, when they were in Mumbai to perform his last rites.
During her visit to Patna later, Ankita had reportedly shown the above-mentioned chats to Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti.

Earlier,Mumbai Police allegedly put pressure on the family of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput to mention names of a few big film production houses during their investigation into his death, the lawyer representing the family of the deceased claimed on Wednesday.
"Mumbai Police is asking the family to name five to six big production houses. Why should we name the production houses if we have nothing against them directly? There might be some indirect involvement but that can't be the basis for us to say, you forget Rhea and go after big production houses," Vikas Singh, lawyer of Sushant's father Krishna Kumar Singh told Times Now, reports timesnownews.com.
The report also informs that the lawyer claimed Mumbai Police has till date not registered a single FIR in the case.
"They (Mumbai Police) are taking the matter in a different direction and are not taking it to its logical end," Vikas Singh further told the news channel.
