Mumbai: Just when Mumbai Police was believed to be cooperating with Bihar Police in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, there was a mysterious phone call and a sudden twist.
Republic TV quoted sources as saying that while the Mumbai Police were initially cooperating with counterparts from Bihar, things changed after the investigating officer received a call.
Shortly after, it was revealed that the Mumbai Police had ‘inadvertently’ deleted files pertaining to the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-manager Disha Salian, Republic TV quoted sources as saying.
The Mumbai police officer told the team from Bihar that the folder containing details of Disha had been ‘inadvertently deleted’ and that they could not find it. When the Bihar Police offered to help the Mumbai Police in retrieving the deleted files, the investigation officer refused to hand over his laptop to them, Republic TV reported.
The Bihar Police has sent a four-member team to Mumbai to investigate into Sushant’s death. It wanted to reopen Disha’s to understand the possible connection between the two deaths, the report said.
The Bihar Police will try to record the statement of Disha’s family members and also find the key maker who opened the door of Sushant’s room, the day he was found hanging from his Bandra residence, Republic TV said.
