Recently, Sushant Singh Rajput's father KK Singh had released a video, in which he said that he had alerted the Mumbai police that his son's life was in danger in February. A few hours later, the late actor's family shared WhatsApp conversations between Sushant's brother-in-law OP Singh and Zone 9 Deputy Commissioner of Police Paramjit Singh Dahiya to prove their claims.
Dahiya has now reacted to Sushant's family's allegations while speaking to Mid-day. The Mumbai cop revealed that he became acquainted with OP Singh through a common friend.
Mumbai Cop Says Sushant's Family Wanted Him To Take Rhea Chakraborty Into Custody And Slap Her
Dahiya told Mid-day that Sushant's family wanted him to slap Rhea Chakraborty and keep her custody without a formal complaint.
"In February, he sent me WhatsApp messages, asking me to call Rhea to the police station and slap her. Rhea and Sushant were in a live-in relationship then. They wanted us to take her and someone named Miranda in custody," he told the tabloid.
Sushant's Family Wanted To Resolve The Matter Informally, Without An Official Complaint
He (Dahiya) further continued, "I told him we need a written complaint to take any action, but he didn't file one. I can't call the actor and slap her. This is against the law and O P Singh should know this... I had asked O P Singh several times to file a formal complaint, but he never did. Why is the senior IPS officer bringing up the matter after 45 days and spreading the wrong message that we didn't act?"

Another senior cop told the tabloid, "O P Singh messaged Dahiya many times, asking for help, like asking to arrange for a car, get it passed, etc. Why did O P Singh not leak that to the media?"
Meanwhile, The Mumbai Police Has Issued An Official Statement In Response To Sushant's Father's Allegations
"Today, KK Singh, father of late Sushant Singh Rajput has released a statement saying that the family had made a written complaint to Bandra Police on 25th February. It must be clarified that no such written complaint has been addressed to Bandra Police Station on that date. However, one OP Singh IPS, the brother in law of late Sushant Singh Rajput, had sent some WhatsApp messages to the then DCP Zone 9 regarding this matter. The then DCP Zone 9 had called OP Singh and requested him that a written complaint is mandatory for any enquiry or action. However, Singh wanted this to be resolved informally to which the then DCP Zone 9 clearly told him that it was not possible," read the statement.
Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14, 2020. Currently, the Mumbai and Bihar police are conducting separate investigations in this death case.
