The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has not found any evidence that suggests actor Sushant Singh Rajput was murdered, three officers, who are part of the probe team told India Today.
However, the investigation is still underway. Sushant was found dead on June 14 at his residence in Bandra, Mumbai. The CBI officials added the main focus is on the suicide angle and possibilities for abetment to suicide is being examined.
So far, the CBI has elaborately reconstructed the crime scene, examined all the evidence collected by Mumbai Police and interrogated key suspects including Rhea Chakraborty.
The probe team have revealed that none of the forensic reports, statements of the key suspects and reconstruction of the crime scene suggests that the actor was murdered.
But, this does not mean that the CBI is officially shutting down the murder investigation just yet. The next key step for the CBI will be to examine the AIIMS forensic report on the post-mortem and autopsy of Sushant Singh Rajput.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty might be facing serious charges in the suicide case concerning the late actor but at one point in time, it was all rosy in their world. It was in May 2019 that rumours of Sushant and Rhea being in a relationship with each other started doing the rounds on the internet. While the couple remained pursed about their romantic equation, their many public outings suggested otherwise.
In June last year, the couple had gone to Ladakh for a romantic getaway. Even though they did not post any pictures together, their individual Instagram posts gave it away. In July last year, Sushant had gone all out to make Rhea’s birthday special, complete with a birthday cake, fireworks and closest friends. Rumour mills were abuzz that the actor had bought Rhea an expensive platinum pendant on the special occasion.
