Sushant Case: Siddharth Pithani called for questioning by CBI for 7th day in row

Mumbai: The CBI on Thursday, August 27 called Sushant Singh Rajput’s flat-mate Siddharth Pithani for the seventh consecutive day for questioning in the actor’s death case, a police official said.

“Pithani arrived at the DRDO guest house at Kalina in Santacruz, where the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)
officials are staying, in a cab around 9 am,” he said.

On Wednesday, Pithani was grilled for over 12 hours by the probing agency.

The manager of Waterstone Resort, where Rajput had stayed for a brief period, was also seen visiting the DRDO
guest house on Wednesday

A team of Bandra Police here also visited the guest house on Wednesday and left after an hour.

Pithani, cook Neeraj Singh and domestic help Deepesh Sawant were present in Rajput’s house at Mont Blanc Apartments in suburban Bandra when the 34-year-old actor was found hanging in his room on June 14.

A CBI team on Wednesday visited the state-run Cooper Hospital in the city where Rajput’s autopsy was performed.
The probing agency sleuths had on Friday recorded the statements of Pithani and Neeraj Singh.

On Saturday, they took Pithani, Neeraj, and Sawant to Rajput’s flat to reconstruct the sequence of events before he
was found dead on June 14.

The three were again taken to the flat on Sunday, and questioned at the DRDO guest house.

The Supreme Court last week upheld the transfer of an FIR, lodged by Rajput’s father in Patna against Rajput’s
girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and others for allegedly abetting his suicide and misappropriating his money, to the CBI.
