June 16 (IndiaToday) – The reasons for Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide are not clear as the actor left no note before ending his life. The police have recovered some items including his medical records for investigation. The postmortem will reveal what injuries he suffered in the process but the reason behind the suicide may never come out.
The security guards at his house told our reporters that Sushant, usually a friendly person, had been tense and irritable of late. Sushant Singh Rajput had delivered a number of hits and some films that did not work at the box office. His last film, Chhichhore, that released in 2019, was a sleeper hit.
He had no films on the floor and the industry has been shut since March as Mumbai battles a severe coronavirus outbreak.
He committed suicide by hanging by the ceiling fan. He used his bedsheet to end his life.
Sushant Singh Rajput lived on the sixth floor of Mount Blanc Apartments, Joggers Park, Bandra West in Mumbai.
The home where he breathed his last is a duplex flat with a hall downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. He lived there with three people. Two cooks and one housekeeper. On Saturday night, he had a friend with him as well.
According to sources on the spot, Sushant had woken up on Sunday morning and had a glass of juice at about 10 am and then he went back to his room and locked it from inside.
When an attendant tried to call him, he did not open the door. The attendant then gathered everyone in the house and they called a local key maker for help. His friend called the police number 108. They broke the door open between 12.30 and 12.45 pm to discover him dead.
Sushant had last made a phone call to a TV actor around midnight, which went unanswered. Around 9.30 am today, Sushant also spoke to his sister briefly, the police said.
Sushant was training to be a pilot to realise the ultimate dream of becoming an astronaut. He was only 34 when he ended his life. When he ended his life, he had a black, International Space University T-shirt on.
There are rumours that he was battling depression, compounded by a lockdown that left him and his industry colleagues without work.
His former manager, Disha Salian, 28, was found dead less than a week ago. The police suspect she died in an accident, falling from her 14th floor apartment in Mumbai’s Malad. Sushant had said Disha’s death was devastating news for him.
