Earlier in the day, the hearing began with Rhea's counsel giving the opening remarks. Through her lawyer in SC, Chakraborty claimed that she was being victimised now. This comes a day after she filed a separate plea in the SC against the 'trial by media'. "I was in love with Sushant. I was traumatised after his death. But I am being victimised now," Rhea's counsel argued in court.

Shyam Divan, Rhea Chakraborty's counsel in the SC, then alleged that there's political influence behind the FIR filed in Bihar. Bihar counsel responded to Rhea's counsel, saying, "There is clear political pressure in Maharashtra. Political pressure is not there in Bihar but in Maharashtra."

SC then asked Rhea's counsel, why shouldn't the CBI investigate the case now. "Earlier you asked for a CBI probe. Why the CBI shouldn't investigate this case now?" To this, Rhea's counsel argued that they are fine with the CBI probe, but opposed to the manner in which the probe was transferred.

The model-turned-actress had filed a plea in the apex court on July 30, a day after Rajput's father had filed an FIR in Patna police station against Chakraborty and five other individuals under IPC Section 306 (Abetment of suicide), Sec 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint), Sec 342 (Punishment for wrongful confinement), Sec 380 (Theft in dwelling house), Sec 406 (Punishment for criminal breach of trust), and Sec 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property).
On Monday, Chakraborty had approached the Supreme Court and filed another plea against what she called an 'unfair media trial'. In her affidavit, Chakraborty had alleged that the media had 'blown out of proportions', the investigation into Rajput's death.
Chakraborty, in her affidavit, recorded "no objection if the Supreme Court refers the matter to CBI by its order."
After acceding to a CBI probe into Rajput's June 14 suicidal death, Chakraborty said the case was heavily politicised by the Bihar government as the incident happened in the wake of Assembly elections. She said the FIR at Patna was purportedly registered because of interest shown by the Bihar Chief Minister.
The apex court is yet to hear Chakraborty's second plea.
