He accused the Jalebi actress of showing a 'double face', and claimed that her lawyer never made any mention of the CBI in the entire hearing. The senior advocate said that Rhea's lawyer argued that the case should be investigated by the Mumbai Police.
"Rhea Chakraborty has shown her double face at every given point in this case. Her lawyer not even once mentioned in the entire hearing that he would want this case transferred to CBI. He argued till the end that we want Mumbai Police only to investigate the case but now that she's lost, she's doing face-saving. She just keeps proving that all the allegations against her are true," Vikas Singh was quoted as saying by Zoom TV.

The apex court in its verdict, has asked Mumbai Police to cooperate with CBI and hand over all the evidence it has gathered so far.
