Their statement was also reported by television actor Mahesh Shetty, casting director Mukesh Chhabra, business manager Shruti Modi, PR manager Ankita Tehlani, actor Rhea Chakraborty, two former Yash Raj Films employees among others.
As per Singh Sr., Rhea’s father who is a doctor was monitoring Sushant’s health in the past few months and never disclosed what medicines were being given to the actor. The Patna resident alleged that the Chakrabortys succeeded in distancing Sushant from his family.
Singh Sr. reportedly met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and impressed upon him the necessity of having a parallel and independent investigation conducted into his son’s death. And IG level officer of the Patna Police has been appointed to now overlook Sushant’s case.
A team of four policemen from Patna, including two inspectors and two sub-inspectors, will meet with their counterparts from Mumbai and take all documentation relating to the actor being used in his death investigation.
