The CBI, after the Supreme Court upheld the Bihar government’s move, is now gearing up to probe actor Sushant Rajput’s controversial death for which actress Rhea Chakraborty has been named prime accused of abetting his suicide.
The agency has so far investigated a handful of such cases. In none of them, the CBI could prove that the suspect(s) drove the deceased to suicide. Apart from Rajput’s, the agency is currently investigating Bollywood actress Jiah Khan’s death in which Sooraj Pancholi stands charged for abetting her suicide.
The CBI filed a chargesheet in the case but nothing much has moved in the trial since 2017. Khan’s mother Rabea believes her daughter was murdered. She accuses police of botching up the initial probe under what she calls was pressure from some top Bollywood celebrities.
