Mumbai Cops says that Sushant Singh Rajput Had Googled His Name Hours Before Death
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was taking medication for bipolar disorder in the months before his death, it has emerged from doctors, according to the Mumbai Police. Sharing details of their investigation into the actor’s death on June 14, the police said he had repeatedly googled the name of his former manager Disha Salian – who died by suicide on June 9 – and a mental illness in his final days, and, in his last few hours, he had done searches on his own name.
The details have emerged from his mobile phone and laptop. The police said his google searches revealed he may have been worried about speculation connecting him to Disha Salian’s suicide.
“It has come to surface that he had bipolar disorder, he was undergoing treatment and taking medicines for it. What circumstances led to his death is the subject of our investigation,” Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh told the media.
He said no politician’s name had come up in the investigation, contrary to theories circulating on social media. “There is no evidence against any politician from any party,” he stressed.
Rhea Chakraborty was among the 56 people questioned by the Mumbai police, which has been investigating allegations that Sushant Singh Rajput was driven to suicide because of intense rivalry and cliques in the film industry. On Friday, she broke her silence on what she called “horrible” allegations against her and said in a video statement “truth will prevail”.
“Her statement was recorded twice and she was called to the police station several times. I can’t comment about her whereabouts,” said the Mumbai police chief, responding to the Patna police team’s claim that the actor could not be found.
Mr Singh also questioned the Bihar police inquiry, saying Sushant Singh’s father, sister and brother-in-law recorded their statement on June 16, two days after his death, but never expressed any suspicion.
