CBI takes over the case of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput
Just as the CBI’s Central Investigation Bureau (CBI) followed up fresh clues that could shed light on the details concerning Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, family representatives of the late hero disclosed that it was ‘business as normal’ when they entered the Bandra flat where the actor Kai Po Che was discovered hanging.
CBI seeking the clues to conclude Rajput’s death
The star was found dead about 1 pm, Sushant Singh Rajput’s flatmates were preparing food in the kitchen in a casual manner when the family entered the flat at approximately 11.30 pm. The CBI, which has recreated the details surrounding Rajput’s death at the time of the trial, is interviewing entities who were around at the building. So far, three of the four people have been questioned.
(Clue): Electricity turned off at the apartment early that night before Rajput’s demise
Rajput’s neighbors who found out all the lights turned off by 10.30-10.45 pm the day before his death, unlike normal days when the actor will be up till 4 am.
Thus the CBI grilled Siddharth Pithani, a friend of Rajput and Neeraj, who served at his home as a chef to figure out potential contradictions in the narratives. The team has already spoken to Dipesh Sawant, the house help of Rajput, who at the time of the incident was among four people present at the house. The CBI team is also expected to query the doctors of Rajput to investigate the theory of ‘mental illness further.’
The Central Investigation Bureau (CBI) team reviewing the matter of the demise of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has summoned two Mumbai Police staff such as the officer involved. Nevertheless, Rhea Chakraborty is yet to be gathered as the central agency. As per Sushant Singh Rajput’s father’s counsel, Vikas Singh had said Monday that the agency would call the Jalebi actress after doing her “spadework.”
What happened when forensic experts meet CBI officials?
Together with forensic experts, the CBI team reached Rajput’s Mont Blanc Apartment residence at about 2.30 pm. The central agency team will recreate the scene of the crime in the flat of Rajput, where it was found dead on 14 June.
Previously, the team from the CBI arrived at Cooper Hospital where mortal remains of Rajput were taken for post-mortem.
The actress Rhea Chakraborty, who was the girlfriend of the late star, has been granted unauthorized access to the mortuary. It has been confirmed that Rhea has been granted access to the morgue for 45 minutes, which the CBI is investigating.
Will the CBI Team-building strategy help to gain justice for Sushant Singh Rajput?
The CBI has developed five teams that will look at various aspects of the case. Although the First Information Report (FIR) is being checked, the five teams will examine the monetary angle, collaborate with the Mumbai Police and the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), who were in charge of the investigation, and search for evidence at the Bandra residence of the late actor. The remaining two teams will search for various locations to locate probe-related evidence and take witness accounts.
FIR lodged against Rhea Chakraborty and other suspects of the case
The CBI has lodged an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and many others in connection with the case of the actor after the Center approved the suggestion of the Bihar government to move the investigation from Patna in the matter.
An FIR has been lodged in Patna on a case filed by Rajput’s father, KK Singh, under provisions associated with suicide abetment. On 14 June, Rajput was found dead in his residence in Mumbai.
