The facts available in actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case clearly indicate that it was a suicide and nothing else, claimed former Mumbai Police Commissioner. Julio Ribeiro on 15 Sep Speaking to India Today TV’s Consulting Editor Rajdeep Sardesai, Julio Ribeiro said the Mumbai Police was investigating this case on proper lines and he was surprised when the Supreme Court handed over the investigation to the CBI.
“You accept the fact that a case can be registered in 2 state or even some other police station, and two parallel inquiries are made, it is going to turn into a huge problem. I am surprised that the Supreme Court has given the case to the CBI. It is their privilege and they can do it. But I think the Mumbai Police was investigating the case on proper lines,” Julio Ribeiro said.
YOU MAY NEED TO KNOW SUSHANT SINGH RAJPUT DEATH CASE
Speaking about the theories revolving around Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, he said facts, in this case, are clear that it was a suicide.
“What are the facts in this case? The actor was found hanging from a fan in his bedroom and the bedroom was locked from inside. Can anyone disprove that the room was locked from inside? For four-and-half-hours, a locksmith tried to break open that lock, but he was not able to do it. And then, they had to use some other methods to open the lock. The door was opened from outside. Unless there was some extraterrestrial being who got into the room, how can you even think about anything other than suicide?” the former Mumbai Police Commissioner asked.
Sushant Singh Rajput loved Astronomy
Sushant loved astronomy, even he bought land on the moon, in the blind region which is popularly known as the Sea of Muscovy. Well, that was not all as the ‘Raabta’ actor had also purchased a highly advanced telescope with which he would use to look at his land and also observed the Saturn rings in space for hours.
Sushant Singh Rajput also had a passion for superbikes and cars as he owned BMW K1300R, a Maserati Quattroporte, and a Range Rover. Well, not all but the late actor had a special connection with ‘4747’ and both his car’s number plates had the same number on them.
The police also revealed that Rajput had initially tried to hang himself with the belt of a bathrobe, but it could not sustain his weight. Following this, he used a green kurta. His clothes were strewn over the floor of his bedroom. The police concluded that they had fallen out when he had pulled the kurta from his cupboard. Due to a discrepancy between his height and the distance between his bed and the ceiling fan, the police concluded that he had hanged himself in an inclined position. No sign of struggle was found.
On 25 July, Rajput’s father, K. K. Singh, filed an FIR at Patna, where he lives, against Rhea Chakraborty and six others, including her family members, for abetment of suicide. He also accused them of wrongful restraint, wrongful confinement, theft, criminal breach of trust, and cheating. He alleged in his complaint that Chakraborty cheated Rajput financially and mentally harassed him. On 28 July, India Today reported that Chakraborty had been booked in the case. In a petition filed at the Supreme Court, Chakraborty claimed she had no role in the actor’s death and was falsely implicated by Rajput’s father. She also sought transfer of the probe in the FIR to Mumbai, saying that there cannot be an impartial investigation in Bihar. The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which investigates financial crimes, also registered a money laundering case over transactions worth of Rs 150 million based on the complaint registered by Rajput’s father.
The Curiousness Of Bihar Police
The curious aspect of the case is that while the Mumbai police played up the nepotism slant during its ongoing inquiry. The ED and the Bihar police are engaged in highlighting the economic dimensions of the scenario. The field-space which should be attached to the probe concerning the demise of the soaring star is prominently absent, appearing more as a footnote.
Sushant Singh Rajput was, undoubtedly, an extremely talented actor, whose boyish looks and abundant energy, made many to liken him with the young Dev Anand. The truth behind his tragic death must come to light and his ending should not be “marketed” by Bihar politicians to enhance their prospects in the Assembly elections that are due in the state or by the Centre to knock down an elected opposition government in Maharashtra. His family is in dire need of justice for them to put a painfully final concluding closure.
