Previously, Rhea Chakraborty took to Instagram to reveal that she has been threatened online by an Instagram user – ‘mannu_raaut.’ She wrote:
“I was called a gold digger … I kept quiet. I was called a murderer … I kept quiet. I was slut shamed … I kept quiet.
“But how does my silence give you the right to tell me that you will get me RAPED and MURDERED if I don’t commit suicide @mannu_raaut?”
Recently, Rhea shared a picture of Sushant on Instagram. She urged the Home Ministry to transfer the investigation to the Central Bureau of Investigation.
“Respected @amitshahofficial sir, I’m Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, it is now over a month since his sudden demise.”
“I have complete faith in the government, however in the interest of justice, I request you with folded hands to initiate a CBI enquiry into this matter.
“I only want to understand what pressures prompted Sushant to take this step. Yours sincerely, Rhea Chakraborty.”
