After an FIR was registered against her in various sections including abetment of suicide in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, actor Rhea Chakraborty on Friday said that she has faith in the judiciary and she will get justice.
In a video statement, the actor refrained from commenting "horrible things" being said against her saying that the matter is sub judice.
"I have immense faith in God and the judiciary. I believe that I will get justice. Even though horrible things are being said about me in the electronic media. I refrain from commenting on the advice of my lawyers as the matter is sub judice. Satyamev Jayate. The truth shall prevail," Chakraborty said.
An FIR was filed by Rajput's father KK Singh against Chakraborty in Bihar under several sections including abetment of suicide.
Days after Rajput's death, Chakraborty said she was the "girlfriend" of the actor while requesting a CBI inquiry in the case.
Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14.
Chakraborty has also approached the Supreme Court for transfer of investigation to Mumbai in the FIR registered against her in Patna.
Enforcement Directorate (ED) registers case.
Meanwhile, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday registered an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) in actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case.
ED registered the report after a First Information Report (FIR) was filed by Sushant Singh Rajput's father against actor Rhea Chakraborty in Bihar.
On Tuesday, a team of Bihar Police arrived in Mumbai, recorded statements of two persons, including actor Sushant Singh Rajput's sister in connection with the case.
Maharashtra's MoS Home Satej Patil has said that the Mumbai Police is investigating in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case and there is no need to handover the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation.
"Bihar Police might have come here because a separate complaint was filed there, but the Mumbai Police's investigation is in the right direction and it will investigate the case properly," Patil said.
Meanwhile, Chakraborty had moved a petition in the Supreme Court seeking directions to transfer the investigation of the case to Mumbai instead of Patna, where Sushant's father registered an FIR.
Following the petition, the Bihar government filed a caveat before the Supreme Court challenging Rhea's plea seeking transfer of the FIR registered in Patna to Mumbai.
Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14.
According to the Maharashtra police, statements of 41 people, including filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, film critic Rajeev Masand, director-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and filmmaker Aditya Chopra have been recorded in the investigation so far.
