On July 25, Rajput’s father Krishna Kishore Singh (74) filed a police complaint against Riya Chakraborty, his family members and six others for abetting their son to suicide. Singh alleged that the emerging film actress Riya had befriended her son in May 2019 to further her career.
In his petition to the apex court, Chakraborty alleged that Rajput’s father used his influence to register an FIR against him in Patna, Bihar.
Riya said in her petition that she and Rajput were in a live-in relationship. He is in deep shock after the death of Rajput and after receiving threats of murder and rape himself. He said in the petition, “It would be appropriate to mention that the deceased and the petitioner had been living in a live-in relationship for nearly a year till June 8, 2020, after which the petitioner had temporarily moved to his residence in Mumbai.”
Chakraborty also said in the petition, “Rajput had been in depression for some time, taking medicines for this and on the morning of June 14, 2020, he committed suicide at his residence in Bandra.” He said that when the incident did not happen in Patna, it is wrong to start an investigation there.
