As the investigation continues, new revelations are being made each day in actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case. On Wednesday, 11 pages from his personal dairy came into the light which reveals the actor's plans for the year 2020. Along with making his Hollywood debut, the actor wanted to contribute to cinema, education, and environment. He also wanted to build a core team of young minds to take forward his Hollywood dream, with his sister leading them. Sushant's dairy has further questioned the 'claims' that he took his own life and died by suicide.

Sushant's family members, his former staff and close friends refuse to believe that the actor died by hanging himself, when he had so many plans for his future. The actor's family believes that there is foul play and accused this girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty of abetment to suicide initially. In a recent letter, the family alleged that the actor was murdered.

The Central Bureau Of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) are investigating the case. While ED has filed a money laundering case, CBI is looking into the case on allegations of theft, blackmailing, exploiting and harassment among many other charges. CBI has filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, her father Indrajit Chakraborty, mother Sandhya Chakraborty, brother Showik Chakraborty and her business manager Shruti Modi, on the basis of Sushant's father's FIR filed against Rhea in Bihar on July 25th.

    FIR lodged in Patna was politically motivated: Maha govt to SC

     Maharashtra government told the Supreme Court on Thursday that registration of the FIR lodged in Patna in actor Sushant Singh Rajput's case was politically motivated and due to extraneous reasons. The state government told the top court that Bihar Police cannot register FIR in the case and carry out any investigation on the ground of alleged "inaction or illegal" action of the Mumbai Police.

    "The newspaper reports produced on record state that the Bihar Police were hesitating for registration of the FIR but the Chief Minister of Bihar and another minister had persuaded them to register it. Thus, it is submitted that the registration of the FIR at Rajeev Nagar Police Station, Patna, Bihar, was politically motivated and due to extraneous reasons," the state government told the top court.

    The Maharashtra government filed its written submissions in the top court on actress Rhea Chakraborty's plea seeking transfer of the FIR to Mumbai.

    Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sushant death case

    Reiterating that the Mumbai Police is doing its job in probing the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Thursday urged the late actor's family and others to "maintain calm" and let the police do their job.

    "The aim is to ensure justice for Sushant. I request the (Sushant's) family members and all others to remain quiet for some time and allow the Mumbai Police to peacefully complete their investigations. All must cooperate with the police probe," Raut told media persons.

    Responding to a query, he categorically stated that Tourism Minister Aditya Thackeray's name "does not figure anywhere in any manner at all".

    "Aditya Thackeray's name has been floated only by the media. Anybody can mention anybody's name, especially involving the big personalities or their family members, for publicity and creating sensationalism. This has become the media norm in recent times," Raut asserted.

    Rhea Chakraborty in her written submissions in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case told the Supreme Court on Thursday that the Patna FIR of July 25, could at best be regarded as a zero FIR and transferred to the Mumbai Police. She also insisted that Rajput's father has made baseless allegations against her. 

    "A plain reading of the subject FIR is clearly indicative of the fact that no such consequence of such alleged act has ensued within the State of Bihar.
