Rumours about a party at Sushant’s residence the night before his death have been circling on social media ever since he died.

Teams of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Mumbai Police arrived at Sushant’s residence on Saturday as part of the probe in the case related to his death. Sushant’s friend Sidharth Pithani and cook Neeraj were also with the CBI team.

Earlier, the CBI team had grilled Neeraj at a guesthouse in Santacruz in connection with the case. Two Mumbai police officials had visited Sushant’s residence on Friday.

Earlier on August 19, the Supreme Court had asked CBI to investigate the case related to the actor’s death, while holding that the FIR registered in Patna was legitimate. The single-judge bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy had observed that the Bihar government was competent to recommend transferring the case to the CBI. It had also asked the Mumbai Police to hand over all the evidence collected so far in the case to the CBI.
