Sushant died by alleged suicide on June 14
The Hindi movie industry lost one of its most promising stars on June 14 this year, when Sushant died by alleged suicide at the age of 34. It came as a shock to everyone, with his family, friends, and fans alleging foul play in his death. However, an expert panel of doctors has since ruled out the possibility of homicide.
CBI, ED and NCB are investigating the case
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) was permitted to take over the case on August 19. Besides, the Enforcement Directorate launched a probe into allegations of money laundering, while the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has been investigating alleged drug abuse in the film industry.
Earlier, Rhea Chakraborty and others were arrested by NCB
In September, Sushant's last girlfriend, actor Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik were arrested by the NCB under the alleged drug link in his death case. While Rhea was granted bail by the Bombay High Court in October, Showik was released earlier this month. Apart from them, actors such as Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, and Arjun Rampal were also questioned.
Sushant was last seen in 'Dil Bechara'
Sushant Singh Rajput, who rose to prominence after his stint as Manav in popular television show Pavitra Rishta, entered Bollywood soon after. He made his film debut with director Abhishek Kapoor's Kai Po Che!, also starring Amit Sadh and Rajkummar Rao. He went on to star in commercially successful movies like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Chhichhore, Dil Bechara, among others.
