Rhea Chakraborty feels truth will be same, whichever agency probes: Lawyer Maneshinde. Read full statement

Actress Rhea Chakraborty is ready to face CBI investigation and she maintains that the truth will remain the same, said her lawyer after the Wednesday morning ruling of the Supreme Court that ordered a court-monitored CBI probe into the death of her boyfriend, actor Sushant Singh Rajput. She will face the investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) just like she has done with the Mumbai Police and Enforcement Directorate (ED), said her lawyer.

"The Hon'ble Supreme Court after examining the facts and circumstances of the case and the report of the Mumbai police, has observed that it will be the desired justice as Rhea herself called for a CBI investigation. The Hon'ble Supreme Court also observed that due to the allegations made by the two states of political interference against each other, it would be in the interest of justice to hand over the case to the CBI," lawyer Satish Maneshinde said in a statement.

It added that Rhea has maintained that the truth will remain the same whichever agency investigates the case.

"Since the court has transferred the investigation to CBI invoking its powers under Article 142 of the Constitution of India, she will appear and face the investigation by the CBI as she has done earlier with the Mumbai Police and the Enforcement Directorate. Rhea maintains that the truth will remain the same, whichever agency investigates the case," Maneshinde added.

Earlier today, the Supreme Court held that the registration of FIR and investigation by the Bihar Police in the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found dead at his apartment in Mumbai's Bandra on June 14, was correct and ordered a CBI investigation into the matter. The order came on actor Rhea Chakraborty's plea seeking to transfer the case filed against her in connection with Sushant's death from Bihar's Patna to Mumbai.

Sushant was found dead at his residence in Mumbai on June 14.
