Sushant Singh Rajput’s dead body was found at his Bandra residence on 14 June. Initial reports suggested it to be a case of suicide. However, no suicide note was found. Suicide was also confirmed in postmortem and viscera reports. The Mumbai Police had questioned several people in the case, including relatives of Sushant, friends, staff and people associated with the film industry. The investigation was handed over to the CBI on the recommendation of the Bihar government after Sushant’s father KK Singh lodged a report against Riya Chakraborty in Patna.
Three central agencies are investigating the CBI, Enforcement Directorate and Narcotics Control Bureau in the Sushant death case. A team of forensic experts of AIIMS was also formed to re-examine the viscera report, whose head, Dr Sudhir Gupta, quoted media reports that Sushant’s death is a suicide and not a murder.
