Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14. He was just 34. Currently, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI ), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are jointly investigating his death case.
Over the past few months, several speculations and theories have surfaced related to the actor’s death. Recently, Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh even said that the late actor’s family is unhappy with the speed of CBI’s investigation. The senior advocate even claimed that Sushant died by strangulation and asked why CBI is not converting the abetment case to murder. Sushant’s fans too have expressed their disappointment over the probe being taken in a different direction.
Now amidst all these allegations, CBI has finally shared an update on the ‘Kedarnath’ actor’s death case. Read on to know the details.
CBI has clarified that they are looking into all aspects and nothing has been ruled out yet. Speaking to ANI, the agency said, “The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is conducting a professional investigation related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput in which all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as of date. Investigation is continuing.”

A few days back Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh, expressing his displeasure over the way investigation is being carried out, in a press conference had said, “The family feels that the probe is being taken in a different direction. All attention is being diverted towards the drugs case. AIIMS doctor told me that Sushant’s death was by strangulation.”
Further, raising some serious questions, Singh asked, “Why is CBI not converting this to murder from abetment? The investigation is not on track. I will not say I am not happy with CBI, but it’s the lack of importance that the case is getting is what I am worried about. The forensics response of the AIIMS should be made public that is what will satisfy the family. Today, we are helpless as we don’t know in which direction the case is going. Till today, CBI has not done a press briefing on what they have found out. I am not happy with the speed at which the case is going.”
Well, now that CBI has given an update, hopefully, Sushant’s family will get some relief. Meanwhile, NCB’s investigation of the drugs case linked to Sushant’s death case has intensified. They recently interrogated Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor.
NCB has also arrested Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions’ former executive producer Kshitij Prasad. Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and several others have also been arrested by the anti-drugs agency.
