Sushant Singh Rajput searched ‘bipolar disorder’ and ‘painless death’ before suicide: Mumbai police Chief

In a statement released on Monday, the Mumbai chief has stated that Sushant Singh Rajput searched 'bipolar' and 'painless death' on Google. The Mumbai Police also denied any direct transfer from Sushant Singh's account to Rhea Chakraborty.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was taking medications for bipolar disorder in the months prior to his death, it has emerged from doctors, said Mumbai Police on Monday. Sharing details of their investigation into the actor’s death on June 14, the police said he had repeatedly googled the name of his former manager Disha Salian – who died by suicide on June 9 – and mental illnesses like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in his final days. In his last few hours, he had done searches on his own name, said the official.

According to the police, the actor was worried about the link-up rumors between him and his former manager Disha Salian. The details of his search history emerged from his phone and laptop.

“It has come to surface that he had bipolar disorder, he was undergoing treatment and taking medicines for it. What circumstances led to his death is the subject of our investigation,” Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh told reporters.

He said no politician’s name had come up in the investigation, contrary to theories circulating on social media. “There is no evidence against any politician from any party,” he stressed.

The chief also answered questions about the alleged turf war between Bihar and Mumbai Police since Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty. The actress has been accused of cheating, harassing, and abetting his suicide.

The Bihar Police also alleged that Sushant Singh had Rs 15 crore in his account which were siphoned off to Rhea’s account. Countering the figure, he said, “During the probe, we found he had Rs 18 crore in his account, of which around Rs 4.5 crore are still there. Till now, no direct transfer to Rhea Chakraborty’s account has been found, we are still investigating.”

Rhea Chakraborty was among the first of the 56 people questioned by the Mumbai Police in Sushant Singh’s case. “Her statement was recorded twice and she was called to the police station several times. I can’t comment about her whereabouts,” said the Mumbai police chief, responding to the Patna police team’s claim that the actor could not be found.

The Mumbai police chief also questioned the Bihar police for their inquiry while stating that Sushant’s father and sisters and brother in law had never raised any suspicion before.

“All angles are being investigated, be it a professional rivalry, financial transactions, or health. We have taken his laptop and phone as technical evidence, we will look into everything,” Mr. Singh further concluded.
