Meanwhile, police have summoned over 30 people in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case including Ankita Lokhande, Rhea Chakraborty, Mahesh Shetty, Sandip Ssingh, family members, co-star, Sanjana Sanghi, director Mukesh Chhabra and his manager.
The police had also sent the green cloth for chemical and forensic analysis at FSL. A police source told a news agency, “Besides viscera from the actor’s body, the police also sent the gown for chemical and forensic analysis at the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) in suburban Kalina. It will take at least three more days to get the final forensic report. To ascertain the exact cause of death, forensic experts will check the pattern of ligature marks around the actor’s neck and also determine the strength of the gown with the help of ‘tensile strength’ analysis.”
As per the reports, Shekhar Kapoor will be the next to be summoned and his statement will be a crucial one. The filmmaker was to direct Sushant in Paani but things never worked out.
