His sisters need to be answerable to the investigators and God,” said Satish Maneshinde, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer.

On Monday, Rhea Chakraborty filed a police complaint against late actor’s sister Priyanka Singh over a “bogus medical prescription”.

The protesting farmers on Sunday have rejected home minister Amit Shah’s proposal for an early discussion on their grievances.

The farmers said the government should have approached with “an open heart” and not put preconditions. The farmers’ decision came after a meeting this morning to discuss the Home Minister’s offer.

He added that apart from the farm laws, they also want withdrawal of electricity amendment bill (2020).

“We firmly know that the union government will not agree to all our demands. While getting the three farm laws revoked is our primary demand, we also want withdrawal of electricity amendment bill (2020). If government insists on farm laws, then we will push for legalising MSP for the purchase of every crop,” he said.
