Mumbai: The Bihar Police have reportedly recorded statement of Ankita Lokhande, actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s former companion on Thursday, July 30.

The visiting Bihar police team on Thursday started the process of scrutinizing financial transactions and bank account details of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput as part of their probe into his alleged suicide here last month, a Mumbai police official said.

The Bihar police team, which arrived here on Wednesday, visited several places, including the residence of Rajput’s friend, actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is facing `abetment to suicide’ charge in a Patna FIR, but did not find her at home, said the Mumbai Crime Branch official.

The team has visited Lokhande’s residence on Thursday and recorded her statement.

According to the official, the Bihar police started looking into financial transactions of Rajput, who was found hanging in his suburban Bandra apartment on June 14.

As part of the process, the four-member team visited a Bandra-based bank where the 34-year-old actor had an account, he said.

The Bihar cops are also looking into evidence collected so far by the Mumbai police and statements recorded by them, he said.

The Mumbai police who are already investigating the alleged suicide have questioned several people from the film industry in connection with the case.

The Patna case was registered under various IPC sections including 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 380 (theft in dwelling house), 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 306 (abetment of suicide).

Singh accused Chakraborty, a budding TV and film actor, of having befriended his son in May 2019 with the intention of furthering her own career.

Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide on July 14 in his residence in Mumbai.
