Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister today penned down a note, requesting Prime Minister Narendra Modi to look into the investigation into the actor’s death and ensure that everything is “handled in a sanitized way and no evidences are tampered with” in the high-profile case.
“Dear Sir, Somehow my heart says that you stand with and for the truth. We are from a very simple family. My brother had no Godfather when he was in Bollywood nor do we have anyone right now. My request to you is to immediately look into this case and make sure that everything is handled in a sanitized way and no evidences are tampered with. Expecting justice to prevail,” Sushant Rajput’s sister, Shweta Singh Kirti, wrote on Twitter.

Mr Rajput (34), who had starred in films such as “Chichhore“, “Kai Po Che” and “Kedarnath“, was found dead at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14. Police says he committed suicide.
The Mumbai police has not been able to establish the exact reasons leading to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, leading to growing clamour — including by Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan — to handover the case to the CBI. The Maharashtra government, however, has been repeatedly insisting that the Mumbai police is capable to handle the matter.
“I would like to tell Rajput’s fans to trust the Mumbai police and give whatever information they have to them. You can criticise if the case is not taken to its logical conclusion,” Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said on Friday.
The Bihar police has also launched investigation in the case after Sushant Singh Rajput’s family filed a complaint accusing his friend Rhea Chakraborty of transferring money from his account and also mentally harassing him.
“I have immense faith in God and the judiciary. I believe that I will get justice. Even though a lot of horrible things are being said about me on the electronic media, I refrain from commenting on the advice of my lawyers as the matter is sub-judice,” Rhea Chakraborty replied in a video released on Friday.
Her statement came hours after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said it had registered a money laundering case over the “suspicious” transaction of Rs 15 crore.
Sushant Rajput’s family has refused to believe that he ended his own life because of depression.
On Friday, Shweta had taken to Instagram to post a photo of Sushant Rajput’s whiteboard in which he had written down his plan from June 29, 2020, which includes starting workout sessions and transcendental meditation.
“Bhai’s White Board where he was planning to start his workout and transcendental meditation from 29th June daily. So he was planning ahead. #justiceforsushantsinghrajput”, she wrote.
The Mumbai police is investigating allegations that the actor was suffering from depression and had been pushed over the edge after being sidelined in the film industry because of nepotism and cliques.
The Supreme Court will hear on August 5 Rhea Chakraborty’s petition asking for the Bihar FIR to be transferred to Mumbai. She had earlier posted an appeal on social media urging Home Minister Amit Shah to order a CBI investigation.
