Recently, a fan asked Sushant's sister why the family had not asked for a CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) probe into the actor's death. She replied that they were waiting for the Mumbai Police to finish their investigation and come up with report. On July 27, the viscera report came in and the Mumbai Police revealed that there is no foul play in Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
A month after Sushant Singh Rajput's death, Rhea Chakraborty had reached out to India's Home Minister Amit Shah, requesting a CBI probe into the case. "Respected @amitshahofficial sir, I'm Sushant Singh Rajputs girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, it is now over a month since his sudden demise. I have complete faith in the government, however, in the interest of justice, I request you with folded hands to initiate a CBI enquiry into this matter. I only want to understand what pressures prompted Sushant to take this step. Yours sincerely Rhea Chakraborty #satyamevajayate," she had written on her social media.
