Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his residence in Mumbai on 14 June last year. His sudden demise led to massive debates on nepotism in Bollywood, which soon snowballed into a drugs case. Three investigative agencies - the Enforcement Directorate (ED), NCB and Central Bureau of Investigation - were brought in to probe his death after Sushant's family accused Rhea Chakraborty of abetment to suicide.
Rhea and her brother Showik were arrested by the NCB in connection to a drugs probe that started following Sushant's death.
