According to a report in India Today, Sushant Singh Rajput's cook, Neeraj told everything that had taken place on the afternoon of June 14 while recording his statement. He alleged that two keysmiths had arrived at Sushant's Bandra residence at around 1:30 PM. He went on to say that since it was taking them long, Sushant's friend, Siddharth Pithani had asked them to break the lock. Afterwards, the keysmiths were paid Rs 2000 by Sushant's staff member, Dipesh Sawant, and they had left.
Sushant's cook, Neeraj further shared that when Dipesh had come back, they had opened the door to the room. He said that it was pitch dark and the air-conditioning was turned on. According to Neeraj, Dipesh had turned on the lights, Siddharth had gone in and had come out quickly followed by him and Dipesh. Neeraj alleged that Sushant was hanging from the ceiling fan with a green cloth around his neck. Later, Siddharth Pithani had called Rajput's sister, Meetu Singh and had informed her about the same. Siddharth had then asked Neeraj to fetch a knife, and they had cut the cloth.
Neeraj went on to say that Sushant's sister, Meetu Singh had entered the room and had begun shouting. She had said, "Gulshan tune ye kya kiya?" Neeraj further claimed that Meetu had asked the men to arrange her late brother's body properly on the bed and it was Neeraj, who had removed the green kurta from Sushant's neck. The cook said in his statement that it was the same kurta which Rajput had worn while performing puja at his home.

Sushant's niece, Mallika Singh had bashed the trolls in defense of her aunt. On Meetu Singh's post for Sushant Singh Rajput, her niece, Mallika Singh had commented, "Clearing out some of the misunderstandings about my masi: 1. If you study up on psychology (I'm minoring in psychology at university) you'd know of a thing called "emotional numbing" by shock. You can stop feeling emotions temporarily after trauma. She compulsively refused to believe it had happened. She was the first one to hear the news from our family, she was the main shock absorber. 2. She was asked to keep it together for a little while by the lawyer, and watch how the investigation is carried out after she had fainted when she arrived. My mamu (SSR) had a lot of valuables in the apartment. She was asked to be alert." Take a look at her post below:
