India Today has exclusively accessed a messenger conversation between Sushant Singh Rajput and a private bank representative from May 2020, where the late actor is discussing details of an investment he was to make with the bank. The chats reveal that Sushant had made his sister Priyanka a nominee on the said investments. This conversation happened barely a month before the actor died by suicide on June 14, in his Bandra, Mumbai home.
SUSHANT SINGH RAJPUT DEATH CASE: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
India Today had earlier accessed chat messages exchanged between Sushant and Priyanka on June 8, the day Rhea Chakraborty left the late actor’s home. The messages showed Priyanka administering prescription drugs to Sushant Singh Rajput, with the help of a Delhi-based psychiatrist, who is also a family friend. The messages proved that Sushant Singh Rajput’s family was aware of his condition, as well as the fact that they were in touch with the actor.
This fresh chat accessed by India Today also points at the fact that Sushant’s relations with his family weren’t as strained as it was initially believed to have been. In addition, it shows the actor was aware and in control of his monies and investments, and Rhea Chakraborty wasn’t controlling his finances, as alleged by Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh in his FIR in Patna’s Rajiv Nagar Police Station.
Currently, three central agencies are looking into the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The Central Bureau Of Investigation (CBI) is probing the death, and so far they haven’t found evidence that indicate the actor was murdered. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is looking into the money laundering angle after KK Singh’s FIR alleged Rhea had siphoned off Rs 15 crore from Sushant Singh Rajput’s bank accounts. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has also been roped into to probe the drug conspiracy angle and find if Rhea was forcing the late actor into it. The NCB has also filed a case and booked Rhea in the same.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging at his Mumbai home on June 14. On August 19, the Supreme Court transferred the investigation to the CBI. A Special Investigation Team of the CBI has since been in Mumbai probing the case.
