Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found hanging in his residence on Sunday afternoon. He was said to be under stress and depression for the last few months.
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found hanging in his Mumbai apartment on Sunday, had made four phone calls in his last few hours, as per Mumbai Police investigation. At 1.47 am, he had dialed his close friend Rhea Chakraborty, but she failed to receive the call. Within minutes, he phoned his close friend-actor Mahesh Shetty, who also did not take the call.
In the morning, just a few hours before Sushant committed suicide, Mahesh, on seeing the actor’s missed call on his phone dialed him back. However, this time, Sushant failed to respond. Later, Mahesh learnt from the police that Sushant tried to call him at 9.30 am, but could not reach out to him.
As per the investigation, Sushant had a glass of pomegranate juice before breakfast. At 10.25 am, his cook Neeraj knocked on the door of his bedroom to ask about the menu for lunch. He was accompanied by other house helps too. A friend of Sushant was also present at his home. He woke up at 11 am and enquired about the actor. Sometime later, he knocked on Sushant’s door. After failing to get a response from him, the friend called him. They could hear the phone ringing from outside and after Sushant didn’t respond to the call, his sister Ritu was informed.
