No one can fill the void he has left in the industry and in the lives of loved ones. Let us tell you that on June 14, 2020, Sushant was found dead in his flat. His death was ruled a suicide. The AIIMS investigation also confirmed suicide. But, his family and loved ones feel that Sushant Singh Rajput cannot take a step like suicide. The truth behind his death is something else. When Sushant’s family also raised their voice to find out the truth about their son’s death and the investigation started, the needle of suspicion stuck on many people ranging from Sushant’s alleged girlfriend Riya Chakraborty. Soon the matter reached to drugs. The investigation has been going on for two years. How far has it progressed? How many people were arrested and released? Let’s know…
Questions of investigation arose after the funeral
After the actor’s death on June 14, Sushant was cremated at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Mumbai the next day i.e. on June 15. Mumbai Police called it a case of suicide, but many questions arose at that time, which have not been answered till date. On one hand, Sushant’s father KK Singh demanded an inquiry. Apart from this, many political figures had also demanded an investigation by saying that the murder was conspiracy. Seeing this, many questions started arising from inside Bollywood too. Actress Kangana Ranaut raised many questions accusing her of harassing Sushant in Bollywood.
Sushant’s father lodged FIR
The entire family, including Sushant’s father, feared some conspiracy behind the incident. Meanwhile, Sushant’s brother-in-law and Uttar Pradesh IPS officer OP Singh demanded an in-depth inquiry into the matter. Events took a new turn when on July 29, 2020, Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against six people, including the son’s alleged girlfriend Riya Chakraborty, in Patna’s Rajiv Nagar police station for abetment to suicide and exchange of money. Got it done After this, on 29 July, the team of Patna Police went to Mumbai for investigation. However, the Patna police team did not get cooperation from the Maharashtra Police, but had to face opposition. The governments of both the states also looked face to face. Let us inform that on June 18, even before the investigation began, Riya Chakraborty had recorded her statement at the Bandra police station in Mumbai. Riya had earlier deleted all social media posts related to Sushant.
CBI took over the command
On 04 July 2020, before the FIR was filed, Sushant’s father had demanded a CBI inquiry, on the basis of which Chief Minister Nitish Kumar recommended it to the Central Government. Riya Chakraborty, who came under the scanner of allegations, also demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter from Union Home Minister Amit Shah on 16 July 2020. Further on 05 August 2020, the Central Government also approved the CBI investigation. The Supreme Court also approved this on August 19. Thereafter, the CBI took the matter into its own hands.
ED and NCB also started investigation
Amidst the investigation of conspiracy murder, a question arose that where did Sushant’s crores of rupees go? Its suspicion also went to Riya Chakraborty. The matter reached the Enforcement Directorate on July 30. The Bihar Police team, who went to Mumbai to investigate Sushant’s murder, helped the ED in this. During this, the ED came to know about the links of Riya Chakraborty and many others with the drug syndicate. Then on the behest of the ED, the NSB started the investigation by registering an FIR in this case on 26 August. Apart from CBI, NSB and ED interrogated Riya Chakraborty and her family and many other people several times. Sushant’s family alleged that Riya has misappropriated Rs 15 crore. The Enforcement Directorate started investigation in the case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Riya was asked questions about Sushant’s financial dealings and investments. Riya’s manager and Sushant’s former house manager were also questioned.
Riya went to jail, many Bollywood celebrities were interrogated
On 04 September 2020, NCB arrested Riya and her brother Shouvik and Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda. After this there was a discussion about the use of drugs in Bollywood. It was surrounded by actress Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor along with Rakulpreet Singh. He was called for questioning by the NSB on 23 September. This investigation is still going on. On November 9, NCB raided actor Arjun Rampal’s residence in Bandra in connection with the drug case. On 28 May 2021, Siddharth Pithani, who was Sushant’s flatmate, was arrested. However, on October 2020, Riya Chakraborty came out on bail. His brother Shouvik is also out on bail. After her arrest in September, Riya spent nearly a month in Mumbai’s Byculla jail. At the same time, Shouvik got bail after three months of his arrest.
Evidence not found against Riya?
After a month of questioning, ED sources had said that there was no evidence against Riya that she had committed any money laundering. There is also no evidence that she was misappropriating Sushant’s money. ED officials said that no transaction has been done between Sushant’s bank account and that of Riya and her family members. However, the ED has not officially confirmed these reports. It is important to know here that Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has nothing to do with drugs, no link has been proved by any investigating agency so far. It is definitely going on in the media now that Riya had subdued Sushant by giving him drugs. NCB has so far arrested a total of 10 people including Riya and her brother. These 10 people include Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda, Sushant’s staffer Dipesh Sawant, along with drug suppliers Zaid Vilatra, Basit Parihar, Anuj Keswani, Kaizan Ibrahim, Abbas Ali Lakhani and Karan Arora.
All three central agencies are investigating
Let us inform that the CBI, NCB and ED are investigating the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. The case of the actor’s death by suicide and then murder went to the drugs angle. The NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) had filed a 12000-page chargesheet in this case in the Special NDPS Court in March 2021. According to reports, 33 people including actress Riya Chakraborty were made accused in this chargesheet. Also 200 people have been made witnesses. The NCB had six months to file a charge sheet based on the first arrest made in September. In its six-month probe, the agency raided several locations in Maharashtra and busted a drug racket operating in the city and within Bollywood. Along with this, many cine stars were questioned. All these statements and other findings were presented in the court by the agency through the charge sheet, which will now be verified and then the accused will be asked to appear before the court.
Last month, Riya got permission to go abroad
Let us tell you that this month, a Mumbai court had given permission to Riya to go to Abu Dhabi for the IIFA award show. But, she finally could not go there as there was a lookout notice against him. In her application before the court, Riya had said that due to criminal prosecution and media trial, her career suffered a setback and she has suffered financial loss. The CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) also investigated whether Sushant’s death was suicide or murder. He also investigated Riya’s role and also whether Sushant had transferred Rs 15 crore to her account? As claimed by Sushant’s family. The agency completed its investigation in December 2021, but is yet to present its results even after six months. Maybe there’s some speed up now.
AIIMS panel declared suicide
In the Sushant Singh death case, the AIIMS panel had confirmed that his death was suicide and not murder. Dr Sudhir Gupta, who headed the AIIMS panel, had said that Sushant Singh Rajput was not murdered, but it was a case of suicide. The AIIMS team came to this conclusion after examining the post-mortem report of Sushant Singh Rajput. However, the investigation which has started after the family alleges conspiracy to murder is still on. The fans of Sushant are waiting for the truth of the death of their favorite star to come out. When this wait will finally end, it remains to be seen.
