Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14, Rhea Chakraborty and her family has been subjected to online hatred on social media and media trial ever since she was accused of abetment of suicide of the Kedarnath star. In August, she shared a video on Instagram showing the scene around her building compound where her father Indrajit Chakraborty was hounded by media, and Rhea had asked Mumbai Police for protection. Now, looks like Rhea’s parents are looking to move into another house, as they were spotted house-hunting by the paparazzi. Paparazzo Viral Bhayani shared a video on Instagram which showed Indrajit and Sandhya Chakraborty looking at houses in Khar. In the caption, Viral wrote that Indrajit and Sandhya Chakraborty have been house-hunting and that the paps have snapped them thrice by now. In the video, they can be seen entering the gate of a building.
On 25 July, Rajput's family lodged a first information report (FIR) with Patna Police, where his father lives, alleging Chakraborty and several others of abetment of suicide, wrongful restraint, wrongful confinement, theft, criminal breach of trust, and cheating under various sections of the IPC.Rajput's father said in the FIR that Rajput had confided to his sister about Chakraborty threatening to make his medical receipts public and prove him mad; that Rajput was afraid Chakraborty would frame him for his secretary's suicide; and that before his day of suicide, Chakraborty took away all doctor's receipts. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), India's national drug law enforcement agency, arrested Chakraborty on 8 September, charging that she and her brother had caused marijuana to be supplied to Rajput. She was housed at Mumbai's Byculla jail. On 6 October, Mumbai Sessions Court extended Chakraborty's judicial remand until 20 October, but a day later she was granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
