Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh has said that members of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s family didn’t raise any suspicion when their statements were recorded in June.
Singh said 56 people have been questioned so far.
He said that every possible angle is being probed, including professional rivalry, financial transactions and health.
Singh also said that Sushant’s family didn’t raise any objections when Sushant’s father and sister met the police on June 16, “they didn’t raise any suspicion neither they complained about any lapse in our investigation”. But they filed a case on July 28 in Patna.
The Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh also said that no party was held at actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s house on June 13, the day before he was found dead at his Bandra apartment.
It was reported that a politician was also involved in the party.
Singh addressed this speculation by saying, “There is no evidence against any politician from any party,” Singh said.
A party was, however, held at the house of Sushant’s former manager Disha Salian’s boyfriend, on the night before she committed suicide prior to a week when Sushant took his life.
The commissioner said,“A party was held the night before [her death] at Disha Salian fiance’s residence. She committed suicide at 3 am, it was verified through the CCTV footage that was analysed. Five persons were present at the party including Disha’s fiance. Four others were present, but no political leader.”
Singh also spoke about Sushant’s mental condition,”It has come to surface that he had bipolar disorder, he was undergoing treatment and taking medicines for it. What circumstances led to his death is the subject of our investigation.”
A few days back, Sushant’s therapist Susan Walker Moffat revealed to a leading reporter from a popular news channel, “Sushant was suffering terribly during his bouts of depression and hypomania. Rhea was his strongest support. From the first time I met them as a couple, I was impressed by the degree of concern, love and support she showed. It was very evident how close they were. Rhea took care of his appointments and gave him enough courage to attend, despite his being so fearful that someone would find out.”
However, Sushant’s brother-in-law Vishal Kirti and Ankita Lokhande have questioned his diagnosis. Vishal shared in a blog post, “Diagnosing mental disorders is an arduous task and diagnosing someone Bipolar (I or II) is even more so. Not only do you have to observe the person very closely, but you also have to observe them over long periods of time (it takes six years on average to diagnose after the onset of symptoms). Susan very conveniently diagnoses Sushant in less than two months (perhaps over a couple of appointments), with a life-changing diagnosis.”
