The Bandra police, who are investigating the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, would now probe the case from the viewpoint of ‘clinical depression due to professional rivalry’. According to the reports by Mid Day, a senior officer of Mumbai police told that it would be cooperative if anyone can come forward and help them in the investigation. The officer was hinting at director Shekhar Kapoor‘s tweet.

Shekhar Kapoor’s tweet after Sushant’s demise read:

I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish I was around the last six months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their karma. Not yours.

On the day of the actor’s cremation, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh tweeted:

While the post-mortem analysis report says the actor committed suicide by hanging himself, there are media reports that he allegedly suffered from clinical depression because of professional rivalry. Mumbai Police will probe this angle too.

Confirming the development of the case to the publication, the senior officer said that they will be soon recording the statement of his business manager to understand his financial affairs and if there were any professional conflicts that triggered him to take such a drastic step. His former managers will also be called to record their statements.
