In a huge development, CBI has taken over investigation into the actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case from the Bihar Police after re-registering an FIR of alleged criminal conspiracy and abetment to suicide against  Rhea Chakraborty. The case has named six persons as accused. CBI got in touch with Bihar Police in connection with the case. Four-member Bihar Police team, which was in Mumbai to investigate Sushant death case, returned to Patna after collecting evidence and recording statements of nearly 10 people. 

Meanwhile, Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey has warned of legal action if IPS officer, who had gone to Mumbai to probe the Sushant death case, is not released from 'forcible quarantine' by the end of the day. The Supreme Court has given 3 days' time to the Maharashtra govt and police to place on record details of their investigation in actor Sushant Singh's death probe. The matter will be taken up next week. Sushant's family has levelled serious charges on Rhea Chakraborty and her family. Their lawyer Vikas Singh has said, "Rhea Chakraborty kept tremendous pressure and control over Sushant's life. She did not let him remain independent. And when she left home on 8 June, she blocked Sushant. She constantly called Sushant when he went to meet his family."

    ED interrogates Samuel Miranda once again

    A day after Sushant Singh Rajput's house manager Samuel Miranda was interrogated by the Enforcement Directorate, he was called in for a second round of questioning. On Thursday, Samuel was spotted at the ED office in Mumbai and refrained from speaking to reporters present at the spot. "Mumbai: Rhea Chakraborty's associate Samuel Miranda reaches Enforcement Directorate (ED) office in connection with #SushantSinghRajput death case. He was questioned by ED yesterday too," an ANI tweet read. 

    As reported earlier, the ED's aim to probe Samuel is to understand Sushant's daily expenditure and probe if there were any financial irregularities. As per reports, Samuel seems to be the third person to be interrogated by the ED after Rhea's CA and Sushant's CA. On Friday, Rhea Chakraborty is expected to appear before the ED. The actress is currently at an undisclosed location.

    As per the Income Tax Return (ITR) records, Rhea Chakraborty's net worth rose in the last few years from Rs 10 lakh to 12 lakh and then Rs 14 lakh in the last few years.  Despite a meager net worth, Rhea bought two properties in Mumbai. One property is in the name of Rhea and the other is in her family member's name. It is still not clear who paid for Rhea’s property. ED has now asked for the property papers. They are expected to receive the papers today. Two companies of Sushant Singh Rajput have been examined so far. Another company based in Delhi is yet to be examined.

    The letter reads: "Sir, I am writing this to you as my family has been continuously harassed by journalists and media people in relation to the death of my daughter Disha Salian. In light of the above unfortunate incident and circumstances, I had already submitted a written complaint in Malvani Police Station & ACP's office vide letter dated: 13/07/2020 against derogatory posts and forwards being shared by the listed people in the said letter, leading to defamation of my deceased daughter and my family."

    "In addition to the said letter, I would like to bring to your attention, the atrocities of journalists and media people on my family. The media people come unannounced at my house hiding their original brand in the name of interviews regarding the death of my daughter. They are providing the media with misleading news which are not only creating hindrance to the actual inquiry being conducted, but it's also taking a toll on my family."

    "We are being harassed by these people by repeatedly questioning our faith in Mumbai Police and their way of inquiries are conducted. We have already given our statement to the police that we do not suspect anyone of foul play. News about her involvement with any politician or attending parties with big names of film fraternity, rape, murder are all the stories cooked by these media people just to sell it to channels. These stories hold no truth. These are misleading the people and tarnishing my daughter's reputation and my family's reputation. These fake news are taking a huge toll on my family's health and we are being victimized by the media. We are completely satisfied with the investigations being conducted by Mumbai Police and have faith in them."

    "Through this letter. I would request you to take reasonable action against the concerned journalists, influencers, politicians and media for their insensitive act towards us."
