Mumbai: A senior Mumbai police officialh has claimed that the IPS brother-in-law of Sushant SinghR Rajput had asked him to call the actor’s girlfriend RheaC Chakraborty to police station and pressurise her.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Paramjitsingh Dahiya told a TV channel that O P Singh, brother-in-law of Rajput and senior IPS officer of Haryana police, had made the request in February this year.

Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14.

“Singh asked me to call Rhea Chakraborty to the police station informally and pressurise her,” said Dahiya, who was the zonal police head of Bandra region till April 1.

Dahiya said Singh told him that Rajput’s family felt Rhea was “controlling” the actor and wanted her out of his life.

Dahiya said that the actor’s family did not submit a written complaint. He said O P Singh made the informal request (to pressurise Rhea) to him through WhatsApp messages on February 18 and 25.

The DCP said Singh visited Mumbai on February 5 and told him to inform Rajput that he was in Mumbai. He also requested that a person called Miranda be kept in a day’s police custody, without any complaint or investigation, Dahiya said.

The DCP said he “politely and firmly” told Singh that it was not possible for him to call anyone to the police station and keep him in custody as it was against procedure.

Dahiya said he asked Singh to file a written complaint based on which the matter would be investigated. The written complaint never came, he added.

Rajput’s father K K Singh has released a video saying he alerted Mumbai police on February 25 that his sons life was in danger.

On Monday, Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh said the family didnt raise any suspicion when the city police recorded their statements on June 16.

“At that moment, they didnt raise any suspicion and also didn’t complain about any lapse in our investigation,” he said.
