Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case Updates

After arresting Rhea Chakraborty, brother Showik and others in drugs prove in connection to Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, Narcotics Control Bureau had summoned the late actor's former manager Shruti Modi and talent manager Jaya Saha on Wednesday. However, the interrogation could not take place for a longer time as one of the officers tested positive for Covid-19. NCB Deputy Director K.P.S. Malhotra in a statement said, "A team member of the NCB SIT tested positive for Covid-19, the antigen test report was just received by NCB." Malhotra said, in view of that other SIT members, etc., will be also tested as a precaution, and all due protocols laid down will be followed. "Accordingly, NCB has sent back Shruti Modi, who had joined investigation today morning," he said.

The interrogation will continue once the safety measures have been taken. Also, Rhea Chakraborty underwent COVID-19 test again after two prisoners of the Byculla Women's jail tested positive for the virus. If needed she will have to undergo a test again. On the other hand, Sushant Singh Rajput's sister Shweta Singh Kirti, who has been actively garnering fans' support since the actor's death, has decided to take a break from social media to heal the pain of losing her brother.

     The 'medico legal opinion' of forensic experts, which holds the key to unravelling the mystery shrouding the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, hints at certain discrepancies relating to the inquest report and description of the crime scene filed by the police.

    A thorough re-examination of the scene of crime which includes the bedroom and duplex flat of Sushant where the star allegedly committed suicide, and autopsy files were conducted by the forensic experts of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to ascertain the cause of death of the young Bollywood actor.

    Highly placed sources in the Department of Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS told IANS that findings of its expert team would certainly shed light on the mysterious death of Sushant Singh Rajput. "If an inquest report, which carries crucial details about the circumstances in which one died, has certain discrepancies then it could be an important finding. However as the matter is subjudice, specific forensic findings cannot be shared," the source added.

     Sources close to developments in the major drug expose in B Town are close to calling key producers, directors, actors, actresses and other film personalities for questioning next week onwards. The Sushant Singh Rajput suicide, now mired in various layers of controversy, is seeing major activity on the drug front.

    The sustained interrogation of siblings Rhea and Showik Chakraborty has revealed that around 20 such people were involved in the consumption and use of these drugs. The propensity to use curated marijuana buds, cocaine, MDMA and other synthetic tablets was commonplace in this drug circuit in B Town.

    While several names have already been bandied about, the questioning of these 20 people is likely to begin from Monday onwards, enlarging the scope of the investigation which is now essentially a high-profile drug case under the auspices of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). Once people from outside Sushant Singh Rajput's inner circle are brought in for questioning, more grime and dirt is expected to emerge.

    This major happening comes after the arrest and custodial interrogation of many in Sushant Singh Rajput's inner circle. Showik and House Manager Samuel Miranda have confessed that they were arranging drugs for the late Bollywood star and facilitating their delivery as well. Moreover, Rajput's personal staffer Dipesh Sawant, who is also arrested, procured drugs for him. Miranda and Showik have been booked for illegal possession, transportation and consumption of contraband. So far, the NCB has arrested 18 people in the case and several of them are on remand.
