Meanwhile, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) will now investigate the drug angle in Sushant's death.

On Monday, the team also visited the Waterstone resort, where the Bollywood star stayed for two months. Sushant Singh Rajput's death has become a big mystery especially after it was revealed that his post-mortem report did not have the time of his death in it. A team of CBI also reached Cooper Hospital on Monday to investigate the matter. It is said that the doctors claimed to have told Mumbai Police that Sushant died 10-12 hours before the post-mortem took place.

The suspicion is on Rhea Chakraborty, who is the main accused in the matter. Sushant's family has alleged that the Jalebi actress 'murdered' Sushant along with a few others. While CBI is looking into the mysterious death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has been probing the money trail angle in the matter. They have recorded statements of Sushant's family members, domestic staff, Rhea Chakraborty and her family members, the two actor's CA and others.

    "Delay in post-mortem can happen especially in the times of COVID-19. In my view if you have consumed something and you are alive for a certain number of hours then only it gets mixed with the blood stream but in this case if you die in a few hours nothing would go in the blood stream as nothing can be consumed so I don't think the delay would have impacted so much but in any case the post-mortem says that it has found nothing in the stomach and that is pretty disturbing," said family lawyer and senior advocate Vikas Singh.
