Actor Rhea Chakraborty on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court for a stay on investigations by Patna police, and sought transfer of the probe to Mumbai, after Patna police lodged an FIR on Sushant Singh Rajput’s father K K Singh’s complaint, accusing her abetment to suicide.

Advocate Satish Maneshinde, representing Rhea, said, “An investigation under Section 174 of CrPC is already under way (in Mumbai). We have sought a stay on investigation by Patna police and transfer of the probe to Mumbai.”

Mumbai Police, which had registered an Accidental Death Record, has so far recorded the statements of over 40 people, including Rhea. No FIR has been registered in Mumbai.
