Mumbai: A team of Patna Police which is Mumbai to investigate the death of Sushant Singh Rajput has prepared a large file consisting of evidence in six days. The evidence could land Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and other people in trouble. The evidence is, reportedly, sufficient to arrest Rhea. To investigate the murder, a four-member team of Patna Police had reached Mumbai. According to a top officer of Bihar Police, when Mumbai Police refused to co-operate and provide necessary documents to the team of Patna Police, the team had to rethink and adopt a new strategy to investigate the case.
Based on evidence collected, reportedly, Patna Police can file for a warrant in a court demanding the arrest of Rhea Chakraborty and others. According to the officer, the team is in possession of the verified copy of Sushant's three bank accounts, the statement of UPI payments, and the ledger balance of the chartered accountant as evidence. There is 48-page evidence of transactions between Rhea and Sushant. There is also 13-page evidence of screenshots of WhatsApp messages between Sushant and his former girlfriend TV actress Ankita Lokhande. There are recorded statements of six people and the telephone conversation of one prime witness has also been transcribed. The officer has said that the team has accumulated enough evidence based on which arrests can be made.
One inspector from the Patna Police team can return from Mumbai along with the gathered evidence. He is waiting for orders from the headquarters of his department. Sources say that Inspector Manoranjan Bharti of Dumra Zone will be sent with the evidence so that a warrant can be obtained from Patna Civil Court for the arrest and interrogation of the accused.
Sources from the headquarters say that once the police have the arrest warrant, an officer of DIG rank could be sent to Mumbai. Three names are in the lot for this which includes Munger DIG Manu Maharaj, ATS DIG Vikas Vaibhav, and STF DIG Vinay Kumar. However, this time officers will travel by road with considerable security.
