On June 14, 2020, actor Sushant Singh Rajput was discovered dead in his Bandra residence. He was discovered hanging from his room’s ceiling fan, implying that he committed suicide. Even now, more than a year later, the numerous unsolved questions surrounding his death remain unexplained, and three separate authorities are currently probing the case. In the midst of it all, new information about the case has emerged.
People familiar with the development claim that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has approached the United States via a formal channel, seeking assistance in retrieving deleted data from Sushant Singh Rajput’s social media accounts and email in order to try and figure out if anything happened in the past that may have directly or indirectly caused or led to the events of June 14, the day he was found dead. According to reports, Google and Facebook, both based in California, have been asked to give data of all deleted chats, emails, and postings of the actor for additional research under the MLAT (mutual legal assistance treaty).
“We don’t want to leave any loose ends before we finalise the case,” an officer added, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “We want to know if there are any particular deleted chats or posts which could be useful in the case.”
