Earlier, two former officials of YRF were questioned in the case. As published in a report by Mumbai Mirror, two former top executives of YRF namely Ashish Patil and Ashish Singh were interrogated by the police to find out if Sushant’s film contracts with the leading production house had anything to do with him slipping into depression. Both these top executives were reportedly the ones in the leading positions at the time when Sushant had entered into a contract with YRF in the year 2012. The daily mentioned that even though the police have received a copy that shows Sushant had entered into a contract with the banner, the copy of the document to show how the contract ended in 2015 is still not being given to the police. A source close to the police told the daily: “The questioning largely revolved around the terms of references in the agreement to join and exit the firm by the actor.”
The Mumbai police have so far recorded the statements of 26 people in the case that now include Shanoo Sharma, the former YRF executives, the late actor’s doctors, his domestic helps, friends, rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, family members, and his publicist Rohini Iyer.
Meanwhile, a petition against eight Bollywood biggies was filed in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur court. The hearing in the matter is scheduled to happen on July 3. Another petition against Rhea has been filed in the same court alleging the abetment of suicide.
