The Bandra police are investigating into the actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case for possible reasons including professional rivalry, other reasons following Kangana Ranaut’s vocal criticism of nepotism in Bollywood, the Mumbai police have now summoned her for recording statement in the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case.
Meanwhile, a forensic analysis report has ruled out the presence of alcohol, narcotics and poison in Rajput’s body.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Abhishek Trimukhe said “We have asked the actress to be present at Bandra police station to give her statement in connection with the probe into Rajput’s suicide,”
However, the Manikarnika actor, who is staying In Manali since the lockdown, has asked for a team to interrogate her in her hometown.
Till date Sushant Rajput’s close friends, family members, colleagues, Aditya Chopra, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and 32 others statements have been recorded by the police.
The police said that they want to get clarity on the motive and hence citing Ranaut’s vocal criticism, she may be able to throw some light on the incident.
The police said that they had tried to summon Ranaut back to the city and record her statement earlier in July but the same could not work out and she is still at her native in Manali. “We have sent her fresh summons asking her to come for recording her statement. We are awaiting her response,” said a police officer.
As Rajput was found hanging at his residence on June 14, the Bandra police station is investigating into the actor’s suicide for possible reasons including professional rivalry and other personal reasons that allegedly led to clinical depression driving the actor to end his life.
The police have registered an accidental death report and are probing the incident. Rajput’s close friend and actor Rhea Chakraborty had tweeted to the Union home minister seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) led investigation in the incident; however, the same was refuted by the state home minister Anil Deshmukh.
