Earlier, Sushant Singh Rajput’s father’s lawyer, Vikas Singh said in a TV interview that the family told Bandra Police about their concern that the actor was surrounded by people ‘they didn’t trust’. He said, “What has been most distressful for the family is that what was Mumbai Police doing all this while? The family has been saying as early as 24 February 2020, when Sushant was still alive that he was surrounded by people whom they don’t trust and there could be some danger to him. And then when he died, the family says that please look into the people who were controlling him. No investigation against Rhea was started, she was given a clean chit.”
