Sushant was found dead under mysterious circumstances at his Mumbai residence on June 14. The Mumbai police initiated an inquiry into the incident.

However, dissatisfied with the investigation being conducted by the Mumbai police, the actor’s father got an FIR registered in Patna on July 28, accusing Ms. Chakraborty and others of abetment of suicide, criminal conspiracy and cheating. He alleged that ₹15 crore were transferred from Sushant’s bank account within a short span of time.
