Filmmaker and chairman of Yashraj Films, Aditya Chopra, recorded his statement in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on Saturday. Police called him at Versova police station where they recorded his statement for more than three hours. On June 14, the actor was found dead in his Bandra apartment following which a detailed probe was ordered to find the cause.
Abhishek Trimukhe DCP zone 9 said,” We have recorded his statement in an ongoing investigation of Sushant’s death.”
Mumbai police till now has recorded statement of 36 people including his cook Neeraj Singh, house help Keshav Bachner, manager Deepesh Sawant, creative manager Siddharth Ramnathmurti Pithani, sisters Neetu and Meetu Singh, father KK singh, television actor Mahesh Shetty, casting director Mukesh Chhabra, business manager Shruti Modi, PR manager Ankita Tehlani, actor Rhea Chakraborty, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and employees of Yash Raj Films among others.
After Sushant’s death, it was alleged that he was unceremoniously dropped from projects and that some bigwigs of Bollywood attempted to stall his career. In light of these reports, Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh had said that claims of ‘professional rivalry’ will be thoroughly investigated by the police.
However, earlier this week, Deshmukh had said that the police are not suspecting any foul play in his death so far.
“I have the tweets and the campaign. But I don’t think that a CBI probe is required. The Mumbai Police is competent enough to handle such cases and they are investigating every aspect of the case including professional rivalry. As of now, we do not see any foul play. Details of the investigation will be shared once it is completed,” he said.
