10 latest developments in this story

  • The agency has sought details, including a copy of the First Information Report (FIR) filed this week based on a complaint by Sushant Singh Rajput's father KK Singh, from the Bihar Police.

  • The FIR named six people, including Sushant's girlfriend -- actor Rhea Chakraborty, her brother and other family members, and accused her of cheating Sushant financially, harassing him mentally and driving him to suicide.
