However, DCP Zone 9 had called Singh and requested him to file a written complaint, as it was mandatory to initiate any inquiry or action. The official statement by the Mumbai Police further said that Rajput's brother-in-law O P Singh wanted the issue to be resolved informally, to which the then DCP zone 9 clearly told him that it was not possible.
Earlier in the day, Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh had said that an Accidental Death Report (ADR) was filed in late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's alleged suicide. He also said that the Mumbai Police is investigating the case in which the forensic expert and team of doctors have been consulted.
While the investigation is underway to determine whether Sushant's death is suspicious or not, Singh said the Mumbai Police have not yet reached any conclusion.
The Dil Bechara actor was found hanging at his rented apartment on June 14 in Bandra. The actor's final postmortem report confirmed that Rajput died of asphyxia due to hanging while his viscera report ruled out any foul play.
