Meanwhile, on the 14th day of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe, the agency summoned Rhea’s father, Indrajit Chakraborty, for a third round of questioning at the DRDO guest house.

Indrajit was seen arriving at the DRDO guest house on Thursday morning. He was grilled by the CBI for over 10 hours on Tuesday.

In another development, Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty, on Thursday, was summoned by the ED for interrogation for the fourth time,
Times Now reported. It is expected that the NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) will also grill Showik tomorrow on the alleged drug angle pertaining to Rajput’s death.

Showik was last grilled by the ED for 3 consecutive days from August 10 to August 12 in connection with the money-laundering allegations put forth by the late actor’s father, KK Singh, in his Patna FIR.

Earlier on Thursday,
Times Now reported that as per sources, Sandip Ssingh is also likely to be summoned by the CBI soon.

In another development, veteran politician and Supreme Court lawyer, Subramanian Swamy has claimed that Rajput was ‘too talented for the Bollywood cartel to ignore’.

“Motive 1 for murder of Sushant is now clear. He was too independent and too talented for the Bollywood cartel to ignore. They could not compete so eliminate him. Rest is Bollywood cinema type alibi. Motive 2 I will state later— it is political but I need more research,” Swamy tweeted on Wednesday.

Sushant was found hanging in his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14. Mumbai Police had initially claimed that it was a suicide.

Later, the actor’s father KK Singh filed a police complaint in Patna, accusing Rhea Chakraborty, her family and others of abetting his son’s suicide and misappropriating his money.

Last month, the Supreme Court ended the jurisdiction battle between Maharashtra Police and Bihar Police and paved the way for a CBI probe into the sensational case.

How It Began

Sushant Singh Rajput became a popular household name after his debut in the 2009 television show ‘Pavitra Rishta’, along with actress Ankita Lokhande (R). While shooting for the family drama, the duo fell in love. The couple dated for six years, and called it quits in 2016.

Entering The Big League

Sushant Singh Rajput joined the new-age actors list that includes Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao. In no time, he became a common name in the Indian film industry. He started bagging several endorsement projects and movies in his kitty.
