The investigation into the death of Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput has intensified with the cops reaching out to the late actors’ close friends and recording their statements. On Thursday, actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is rumoured to have been dating the ‘Kedarnath’ actor, was interrogated by the Mumbai Police for nine hours straight.
According to a report, the interrogation was a part of the ongoing police investigation into the actor’s demise. During the interrogation, Chakraborty confirmed that she had been living with Rajput and that the couple was looking to invest in property together as they had planned to get married in November.
The phone of the actress was thoroughly scanned by the police, including the pictures and videos of the couple and the texts exchanged. When the police asked Chakraborty about her alleged break-up with Rajput, she admitted that she had left the Carter Road penthouse that was shared by the couple after getting into a fight with the late actor.
Chakraborty confessed that the couple had kept in touch with each other on the phone and over the texts even after the fight. Sources add that Chakraborty also happened to be the last person Rajput called before going to sleep every day.
The police have so far recorded the statements of 13 people in connection with the actor’s death, including the casting director Mukesh Chhabra.
Known for films like ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ and ‘Kedarnath’, Rajput was found hanging at his Bandra home on June 14. Initial reports suggested that the actor had allegedly died of suicide. No suicide note was found in Rajput’s apartment. His post-mortem report said that he had died of asphyxiation.
The actor was cremated at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Vile Parle on Monday amid heavy downpour.
