After a long hiatus and hullaballoo, finally Sushant Singh Rajput’s family has broken their silence on the matter of his suicide. It’s been more than a month now, and all SSR fans were unitedly asking for a CBI enquiry as the Mumbai police was failing at bringing out the truth. Many celebrities had come forward to march a battle for SSR, but they had to step down as his family was keeping their silence. Now, finally the family has spoken and Sushant’s ex-girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande has come out in support of them.

On July 28, 2020, Sushant's father had filed FIR and had accused Rhea of abetment to suicide, alleging that she had cheated him financially and had mentally harassed him. A four-member team of Patna Police had already left for Mumbai to probe the case. Payal Rohtagi had taken to her Twitter handle and had shared a copy of the FIR and had written, "#SushanthSinghRajput's father files FIR against #RheaChakraborty blaming her for Sushant's suicide. This is the copy of the FIR registered by Patna police #WhyFearCBIForSSR". Check it out:
Now, as the case is proceeding further and people are hailing Sushant’s family for finally speaking up and taking an action, Sushant Rajput’s ex-girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande has also taken a side and has shared a post on her IG handle, which can be read as “Truth Wins”. It looks like Ankita knew about all the trauma Sushant was dealing with and was waiting for his family to come forward and ask for justice. Take a look at Ankita Lokhande’s post below:
Amidst all this, Sushant Singh Rajput's sister, Shweta Singh Kirti also took to her IG handle and made a post hoping for 'truth' to prevail. On July 29, 2020, she shared a picture from Sushant's prayer meet and wrote, "If truth doesn't matter, nothing ever will! #justiceforsushantsinghrajput."
Earlier, there were questions raised on Sushant's family also, for staying quiet and not asking for a CBI inquiry, when his fans had created a whole campaign, demanding for a CBI probe. But Sushant's sister, Shweta, had come forward to explain the reason for the same. A fan had requested Shweta and her family for a CBI investigation, mentioning that the whole nation will support Sushant's family if they demand an inquiry, and the government will take it more seriously. To this, Shweta had replied with the reason and had written, "We were waiting for Mumbai police to finish the investigation and come up with their reports."

Now, after Sushant Singh Rajput's father has filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, his lawyer has made some shocking statements. According to the reports published in ANI, the lawyer said that instead of registering the complaint, Mumbai police was forcing SSR's family to give names of big production houses and get them involved. Quoting the lawyer, ANI wrote, "FIR registered now as family was in shock & Mumbai Police wasn't registering FIR, but forcing them to give names of big production houses & get them involved. It was heading in a different direction: Vikas Singh, Ex-Addl Solicitor General & lawyer of #SushantSinghRajput's father." It was also mentioned that Patna police was a little hesitant in registering the complaint but the Chief Minister of Bihar, Mr Nitish Kumar mediated and they complied. The quote read "Patna Police was a little hesitant, but CM Nitish Kumar & Minister Sanjay Jha explained the matter to them, and FIR was registered. We want that the matter be investigated by Patna Police. The family has not demanded for CBI investigation yet: Lawyer of #SushantSinghRajput's father."
ANI also reported that all the people named by Sushant's father in the FIR have been booked. The quote said, "FIR has been registered. Preliminary investigation has begun. It is not correct to say at this point of time that who will be questioned. All those who were named by #SushantSinghRajput's father in the FIR, have been booked: Vinay Tiwari, Patna (Central) City SP."
