Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh has demanded that the CBI investigating his son’s death, “must arrest” Rhea Chakraborty. In a statement to ANI, Singh, who previously accused the actress of ‘abetment to suicide’, ‘wrongful restraint’ besides other charges, has now claimed she is his son’s “murderer.”
“My son didn’t commit suicide, he was poisoned by Rhea Chakraborty from prolonged time, she’s a murderer, and must be put behind the bars along with her associates right away,” KK Singh quoted.

This comes in shortly after the late actor’s sister, Shweta Singh Kirti also took to her social media handle to demand that the ‘culprits’ of her brother’s murder “should be taken under custody immediately.”
In her post, Shweta wrote, “Why the people who have committed such a heinous crime…moving about Scot-free??? I need an answer!! They should be taken under custody immediately!! #ArrestCulpritsOfSSR”
In her social media posts, she also urged the Prime Minister and his office to provide Kangana Ranaut with protection as she is willing to help the Narcotics Bureau with their ongoing investigation in the case. The NCB will reportedly look into a new possible drug angle that has emerged in the case.
In a recent development, the case has been registered against Rhea Chakraborty and other friends under the charges of drug dealing and consumption.
According to reports, when contacted, DG (NCB) Rakesh Asthana said, “An investigation has been put into motion and a five-member SIT has been constituted to probe the case”.
This case was allegedly registered on the basis of documents, WhatsApp chat screenshots, and a requisition letter sent to the NCB by the ED that is probing the financial irregularities charges in the Sushant death case.
