The Bandra police have so far recorded the statements of 23 related and unrelated people in the case. Apart from the family members, these people include Sushant’s charted accountant, rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, his friend and director Mukesh Chhabra, publicist Rohini Iyer, friends Mahesh Shetty and Siddharth Pitani, househelps, and representatives of the production houses.
