On the occasion of the actor’s first death anniversary, the investigating agency Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) clarified that it had not closed the case. As per sources, the probe was still underway and that all angles were still being looked into.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mont Blanc residence in Mumbai’s Bandra on June 14 last year. The Mumbai Police that was initially investigating the case termed it as ‘suicide.’ Later, amid fans and celebs’ accusations of alleged foul play in the death and ‘justice for SSR’ movement, the Bihar police stepped into the probe. After Bihar Police alleged lack of co-operation in Mumbai, the Bihar government then recommended that the CBI took over the case. The Supreme Court on August 19 ordered the CBI to take charge of the case. Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and some members of SSR’s staff were arrested. They are now out on bail. SSR’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani is currently in jail for his alleged involvement with drugs, in the same case. Meanwhile, Bollywood stars, united by grief, poured their hearts out on social media on the first death anniversary of actor Sushant Singh Rajput on Monday.
