Mumbai: The Patna (Central) City Superintendent of Police Vinay Tiwari reached Mumbai on Sunday (August 2, 2020) and joined his team which is probing the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Bihar Police which is probing Sushant’s death after an FIR was filed by his father KK Singh against late actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty in Bihar, have so far come across several leads.
As per sources, the initial investigations have revealed that the actor changed SIM cards for over 14 times between June 9 and June 13.
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) has also suspected that the 34-year old actor had come to know about the reason behind his former secretary, Disha Salian’s death.
Disha had reportedly called Sushant and given some secret information, after which the actor was possibly threatened because of the information he received from his ex-secretary.
If the Police sources are to be believed, Sushant’s room partner Siddharth Pithani had also come across the information received by Sushant.
The SIT also doubts that the CCTV footages around Sushant’s Bandra residence were tampered since the team has not yet been able to get access to those clips.
Earlier in the day, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh condemned the demand for a CBI investigation into the case and said that even though the Patna Police has filed an FIR into Sushant’s death and is probing the case, it will be the onus of Mumbai Police to carry out the investigation as per jurisdictional norms.
As per reports, Mumbai Police has so far recorded statements of as many as 37 people including Rhea, Mahesh Bhatt, Aditya Chopra, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Sanjana Sanghi along with actor’s personal staff members and doctors.
Sushant, a resident of Patna, reportedly died by suicide at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on June 14.
