CBI Finds No Evidence That Sushant’s Death Was A Murder; Now To Focus On Suicide Abatement Angle: ReportsSushant Singh Rajput

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has not found any evidence of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death being a murder instead of a suicide, reports WION.

The central investigative agency had taken over the case a few weeks back following the FIR by Sushant's father accusing his then girlfriend and live-in partner Rhea Chakraborty and her family members of abetment of suicide and money laundering.

Over the past few weeks, CBI has questioned several persons involved in the case, including Rhea Chakraborty, roommate Siddharth Pithani, house staff, former manager Shruti Modi, and Samuel Miranda.

Reportedly, a CBI team is currently in Mumbai and the probe is underway, now looking at the angle of the abetment to suicide.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has been grilling Goa-based hotelier Gaurav Arya in connection with the money-laundering probe in Sushant's death case.

Arya was summoned by CBI after his chats with Rhea allegedly regarding drug procurement came to light. ED is also questioning Arya about his financial dealings with Rhea and her brother Showik, and recording his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
