A woman claiming to have vital information in actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case has demanded security from police here in Madhya Pradesh, a senior official said on Tuesday.
Deputy Inspector General Harinarayanchari Mishra told reporters that the woman, a Mumbai resident currently staying with her relatives in Indore, recently met him.
“She claimed that she knew Rajput for a long time, and has some vital information about the actor’s death,” he said without revealing the woman’s identity.
“She said she will reveal it in a factual manner at an appropriate forum on demand. She has expressed the need for security and we have assured her to provide the same as and when required in a swift manner,” the official said.
The woman, who took part in some news debates on the issue of Rajput’s death, also complained that her Facebook account was hacked and the cyber cell of police is conducting a probe into it, another police official said.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s flatmate-teammate Siddharth Pithani may turn a witness in the actor’s death investigation currently underway, top sources have told Republic. He could record a statement with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) under Section 164. Pithani, who had been questioned by the CBI multiple times, might have already reached Delhi for the proceedings.
Siddharth Pithani to turn witness?
As per top sources, Pithani has been placed under the CBI radar and is being monitored by the authorities. He had been one of the people in the house in Mumbai’s Bandra where Sushant Singh Rajput had died on June 14. Pithani has been the only one to give details of the arrival of ‘outsiders’ at the residence, on June 13, a day allegedly before the unfortunate event occurred.
The development came amid reports that the CBI could re-examine suspects like Pithani including producer Sandip Ssingh after the AIIMS medico-legal was handed to it.
