Actor Rhea Chakraborty has requested the cyber crime cell to look into rape and murder threats she has been receiving following Sushant Singh Rajput's death last month. Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his apartment in Mumbai's Bandra on June 14. Rajput, 34, died by suicide, police say.
Since then Chakraborty -- a close friend of Sushant Singh Rajput -- has been subjected to online hate with users blaming her for his death. The 28-year-old actor said that while she had eventually disabled the hate messages in the comments section of her Instagram page, the harassment was now unbearable.
She shared a screenshot of a hate message she received on Instagram. "I was called a gold digger. kept quiet I was called a murderer. I kept quiet, I was slut shamed, I kept quiet. But how does my silence give you the right to tell me that you will get me raped and murdered if I don't commit suicide," the actor wrote tagging the alleged online attacker. No one should be subjected to this kind of "toxicity and harassment", she added.
Rhea Chakraborty tagged the cyber cell and requested the authorities to look into the threats. "I request @cyber_crime_helpline @cybercrimeindia to please take necessary action. Enough is enough," she wrote.
