Death timeline and what followed afterward
So on June 14 ‘dil bechara’ actor was found dead in his Bandra house and it created chaos throughout the nation. Rumors aired that he was mentally weak which lead him to suicide but actress Kangana Ranaut denied to acknowledge it. Right after this many celebrities and known personalities started out throwing their personal opinion on this stand.
The main suspect alleged in this conspiracy was Rhea Chakraborty, girlfriend of the late actor. On the 18th of June Rhea records her statement after deleting all the Instagram posts with her former boyfriend which upsets fans. Nation outraged on nepotism and allegations on stalwarts of Hindi Cinema. This apparently demanded justice for SSR.
On 24 June Sushant’s postpartum report was released and it stated that there were no signs of struggle and external injuries which means the actor hanged himself to death. Only after this, CBI entered the scenario. Many filmmakers like Aditya Chopra, Sanjay Leela Bhansali recorded their statements to Police. Before his demise, he was working on a film called ‘Dil Bechara’ that aired on June 24, 2020, on Hotstar.
By the end of July, SSR’s father, KK Singh files an FIR in Bihar Police station. He accused 6 people of encouragement to suicide. Later, Rhea Chakraborty demands the High Court to move the case to Mumbai. Both the state’s police play their jurisdiction and the CBI enters this case. CBI names the family of Chakraborty, Samuel Miranda(SSR’s house manager), and many more in the FIR and they got what they deserved.
The drug angle was not found before. Once actress Kangana Ranaut decided to expose all of the A-listers of the industry, Narcotics Control Bureau(NCB) entered. After sessions of interrogations, NCB arrests Rhea Chakraborty, his brother, and Samuel. After 4 weeks of serving in jail, Rhea walks out on bail. In between her period in jail, AIIMS released his report on this case and it ruled out murder and said he died of suicide. This way this case closes down.
