Bihar cops scrutinise Sushant account details, visit Rhea Chakraborty

The visiting Bihar police team on Thursday started the process of scrutinising financial transactions and bank account details of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput as part of their probe into his alleged suicide here last month, a Mumbai police official said.

The Bihar police team, which arrived here on Wednesday, visited several places, including the residence of Rajput’s friend, actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is facing `abetment to suicide’ charge in a Patna FIR, but did not find her at home, said the Mumbai Crime Branch official.

According to the official, the Bihar police started looking into financial transactions of Rajput, who was found hanging in his suburban Bandra apartment on June 14.

As part of the process, the four-member team visited a Bandra-based bank where the 34-year-old actor had an account, he said.The Bihar cops are also looking into evidence collected so far by the Mumbai police and statements recorded by them, he said.

They are expected to question some people linked to Rajput, including his ex-girlfriend, actress Ankita Lokhande, the official said.

The Bihar Police team landed in Mumbai to probe an `abetment to suicide’ case registered against Chakraborty and others in connection with the death of Rajput.

Krishna Kumar Singh (74), Rajput’s father, lodged a complaint against Chakraborty, the deceased actor’s friend, and six others, including her family members, for alleged abetment to suicide, in Patna on Tuesday.
