He said that OP Singh called him on July 22 to to give statement against Rhea to Bihar Police through a WhatsApp call. The email read, “I was told I would receive a phone call. I got a call from an unknown WhatsApp number, but it ended within 40 seconds, and no statement was recorded. I am pressurised to comply and record statements against Rhea, the things which I am not aware of.”
Talking about the money, he said “I was absent from his house for four months and returned in January and during this time a lot of things happened but I used to stay away from all of that.”
After Sushant’s father’s FIR, Rhea filed a petition in the Supreme court to transfer the case to Mumbai as the case was originally registered here. In her petition, Rhea admitted that she was in a line-in relationship with Sushant since one year and left for her house on 8 June after they had a big fight.
