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."
On the other hand, according to the Mumbai police, statements of around 40 people, are recorded in the probe of SSR's alleged suicide up till now, including filmmaker, Mahesh Bhatt, film critic, Rajeev Masand, director-producer, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, filmmaker, Aditya Chopra, Sushant Singh Rajput's cook, Neeraj Singh, domestic help, Keshav Bachner, manager, Deepesh Sawant, creative manager, Siddharth Ramnathmurti Pithani, sisters, Neetu and Meetu Singh, television actor, Mahesh Shetty (SSR's best friend), casting director, Mukesh Chhabra, business manager, Shruti Modi, PR manager, Ankita Tehlani, actor Rhea Chakraborty, and two former employees of Yash Raj Films, are also among others, who have recorded their statement.
