The California State Assembly has honoured Sushant Singh Rajput for his contributions to cinema, on the two-month anniversary of his death. The actor’s sister, Shweta Singh Kirti who lives in the US, received a certificate on his behalf. Sushant Singh Rajput wanted to move to Hollywood, a wish that he dreamt for long. Shweta has been vocal and has been demanding justice for her brother. She had previously shared pictures and videos of a billboard in California, calling for justice for Sushant Singh Rajput. Sushant allegedly died by suicide on June 14, at the age of 34.
Sushant's family has been urging for the Central Bureau of Investigation to take over the case, after they registered an FIR in Patna. The Mumbai and Patna police have been sparring over the case ever since. Sushant’s father, KK Singh, has accused Rhea Chakraborty, of abetting his 'suicide' and laundering his money, among other serious accusations. Rhea and Sushant's managers and their domestic helps have been questioned by the police and Enforcement Directorate.
According to top ED officials, the agency recorded the statements of Rajat Mewati and Dipesh Sawant on Friday under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002. The official said that Sawant was the servant at Sushant's residence and he was among the five people who saw the body of the late actor at his Bandra flat on June 14. Meanwhile, the actor has received special recognition from California State Assembly for his contribution to the world and cinema.
Sushant's former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande also shared copies of her bank statements on social media soon after reports emerged claiming the late actor was paying EMIs for her flat. Alongside, she wrote, "Here I cease all the speculations. As transparent as I could be. My Flat's Registration as well as my Bank Statement's (01/01/19 to 01/03/20) highlighting the emi's being deducted from my account on monthly basis. There is nothing more I have to say."
Celebrity support continued to pour in for a CBI probe into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput all through Saturday, with actors like Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Urvashi Rautela and Rashami Desai joining the social media campaign along with several others in the entertainment industry. The CBI enquiry demands have followed a video posted by Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti demanding CBI investigation into his death.
