The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) amid several speculations and decisions, on Thursday registered case against six accused and others in late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
The FIR is fiiled against the late actor’s alleged girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, Indrajit Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty, Showik Chakraborty, Samuel Miranda, Shruti Modi, and others involved in the case, officials said. It took over probe from Bihar Police.
Who is Samuel Miranda?
Samuel Miranda is the house manager of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. He was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday.
Miranda is the third person to be questioned by the financial probe agency in connection with the Bollywood actor’s alleged suicide.
Sushant’s father K.K. Singh had filed an FIR in Patna on July 25, accusing Rhea, Indrajit Chakraborty, Sandhya Chakraborty, Showik Chakraborty, Samuel Miranda and Shruti Modi of abetment to suicide, fraud and holding Sushant hostage.
The case will be probed by a special investigation team under Superintendent of Police Nupur Prasad and will be supervised by DIG Gagandeep Gambhir and Joint Director Manoj Shashidhar, both senior IPS officers from the Gujarat cadre, they said.
Rajput’s father had last month lodged the complaint with the Bihar Police against Chakraborty, her family members and six others for abetment to suicide of his son and fraud.
Singh has accused Chakraborty, the purported girlfriend of Rajput, of having befriended his son in May 2019 with the intention of furthering her own career.
The father also wanted a police investigation to ascertain where the ₹15 crore, which he claimed was deposited in a bank account held by Rajput, had been transferred.
