The Bihar Police swung into action after an FIR was lodged with the Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna on Juoly 25, on the basis of KK Singh, the bereaved father’s complaint against Rhea Chakraborty (Rajput’s alleged girlfriend) under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including those pertaining to abetment of suicide and fraud.
Rhea, on the other hand, denied the charges and had moved the Supreme Court demanding that the case registered against her by the Bihar Police should be transferred to the Mumbai Police.
A single judge bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy will hear the matter on August 5.
