Sushant’s friend and flatmate Siddharth Pithani also arrived at the ED office in connection with a money laundering case that stems from the complaint filed by the late actor’s father with the Bihar police in connection with his death. On the other hand, the CBI will record the statement of Sushant’s family members. The CBI, which has taken over the investigation into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput case from the Bihar Police after re-registering an FIR of alleged criminal conspiracy and abetment to suicide against Rhea Chakraborty, has also sought time from Sushant’s family members for the same.
Vikas Singh, lawyer of Sushant Rajput’s father, has responded to the reports that CBI is recording his client’s statement. He said, “I can’t comment on that. CBI has to do its own job. I have no control over what it does. If CBI wants to examine the complainant, then, they are within their rights to do so.”
While referring to Rhea, he said, “If media wants to get to the truth how can anybody say that free speech should be curtailed? When Mumbai Police called people from Bollywood & it was reported, she didn’t have problems. Only when media trial is coming to the truth she has problems.”
BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Monday tweeted that, according to ambulance staff who carried the body of Sushant Singh Rajput to hospital from his residence, the feet of the late actor was twisted below the ankle.
CBI will find it worthwhile to grill the Dr. R.C. Cooper Muncipal Hospital the five doctors who did the autopsy. According to the Ambulance staff that took SSR’s body to the hospital, SSR’s feet was twisted below his ankle (as if it was broken). Case is unravelling!!

Rhea files fresh affidavit in SC
Rhea Chakraborty has filed a fresh affidavit in the Supreme Court, stating that the ongoing “media trial” against her in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case should be stopped. She also said in her affidavit that the investigations are still going on but she is being blamed in the case by the media.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s father Krishna Kishore Singh, who has accused Rhea Chakraborty and her family of abetting the actor’s suicide, too filed a reply affidavit before the Supreme court in which he defended the Bihar Police action and accused the Mumbai police of negligence. He contended that Chakraborty’s plea was “infructuous” as the CBI had taken over the case.
In an affidavit filed before the Supreme Court in response to a petition by Rhea Chakraborty seeking transfer of an FIR, lodged against her by the Bihar police on a complaint by Sushant Singh Rajput’s father, to Mumbai, the Mumbai police said the CBI should have waited for the apex court decision in the matter before registering the case.
Opposing a CBI probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, the Mumbai police told the Supreme Court on Saturday that it was carrying out an impartial investigation in the matter and alleged that that the registration of an FIR by Bihar Police was “politically motivated” and violated the principle of federalism.
According to CBI sources, a team of the agency officials is likely to visit the residence of Sushant Singh Rajput’s brother-in-law in Haryana’s Faridabad to record the statement of K.K. Singh and his daughter Rani Singh. Singh has been for the past few days staying with his daughter and son-in-law O.P. Singh, who is also Faridabad’s Commissioner of Police, as per IANS.

Taking up Rhea Chakraborty’s plea for hearing on August 5, the Supreme Court bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy had asked all parties to file affidavits explaining their stand.

Rhea Chakraborty on Saturday shared a picture of a note which she claims was written by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, expressing his gratitude for certain things in his life. Chakraborty (28) also shared through her advocate Satish Maneshinde a photograph of a water sipper, which is a piece of movie merchandise from Rajput’s 2019 film “Chhichhore”. “The only property of Sushant that I possess,” she said in a message sent along with the photo to the media.
The CBI acted swiftly on a reference from the government in Bihar, the home state of Sushant Singh Rajput, where his family had lodged an FIR against the late actor’s purported girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty. The Patna police had registered the FIR under IPC sections related to alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and abetment to suicide, among others. The case has gone to the CBI on a reference from the Bihar government which has been forwarded to the agency by the central government.
