Mumbai: An official of Bihar police said here on Saturday that actress Rhea Chakraborty, against whom an abetment to suicide case has been registered in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, was under their watch.

The Bihar police also recorded the statement of film director, Rumi Jaffrey, in the case here during the day, said an official.

The four-member Bihar police team arrived in Mumbai on Wednesday to probe the abetment to suicide case registered against Chakraborty and others in Patna.

On Saturday the team visited the Bandra police station in connection with the investigation.

When asked whether Chakraborty would be interrogated, an official of the Bihar police said, “It is not required as of now. But she is under our watch.”

Another member of the visiting team said they have sent a notice to Chakraborty under relevant sections of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), asking her to cooperate with the police in the probe.

He also said that the Mumbai police were cooperating with them in the investigation of the case.

The team also recorded the statement of film director Rumi Jaffrey.

“Jaffrey, who was reportedly going to cast Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty together, was quizzed for around four hours,” said an official.

They would be recording the statements of four-five more persons from the film industry, he said.

Krishna Kumar Singh, Rajput’s father, lodged a complaint against Chakraborty and six others including her family members in Patna on Tuesday.

The case was registered under various IPC sections including 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 380 (theft in dwelling house), 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 306 (abetment of suicide).

Singh accused Chakraborty, a budding TV and film actor, of having befriended his son in May 2019 with the intention of furthering her own career and exploiting him.

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

A Mumbai police official said earlier in the day that the visiting team had recorded the statements of six persons as part of the probe.

“Till now, the police team from Bihar has met the late actor’s friends, colleagues, and relatives. They have recorded the statements of six persons- Rajput’s sister, who stays in Versova, former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, a cook, his friends, and colleagues,” the official said.
