Actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is the accused in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case has filed a fresh affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that the late actor’s death was a case of suicide and is “being blown out of proportion” due to the impending elections in Bihar.
“The sad incident of the death of Sushant Singh Rajput who hailed from Bihar unfortunately occurred just in wake of elections in Bihar. This has led to the issue of suicide of deceased being isolated and blown out of proportion” says Rhea in her affidavit. Chakraborty alleges that the issue has been sensationalised by media channels where all witnesses are being examined and cross-examined and she has been convicted “even before foul play in the death of Sushant Singh Rajput is established”.
In her affidavit before The honourable Supreme Court, she has drawn corollaries of the Late actor’s case with the 2G scam case & the unfortunate Aarushi Talwar murder case, stating that this media trial has caused her extreme trauma and has infringed her of privacy.
“Media had convicted accused in 2G and Talwar case in similar fashion where each and every accused was later on found innocent by the Courts” – Rhea Chakraborty to SC
She also stated that she is being made a “scapegoat” of political agenda’s, the bollywood actress wants that she should be protected.
On the aspect of technicalities and jurisdiction Chakraborty has denied all allegations levelled against her by Rajput’s father in Patna and highlights that jurisdiction has been wrongly usurped in Bihar due to political pressure as no alleged act was done in Bihar. She states states that Section 179 of Criminal Procedure Code is being misconstrued. 
She has also contended that jurisdiction for trying offences only lies in State of Maharashtra notwithstanding FIR registration or transfer to CBI and residence of the deceased father in patna is no ground in law to usurp the case to Magistrate in Patna.
