Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra residence on Sunday, June 14. The news left the Hindi film industry and the country in shock. His fans are shocked after knowing about his untimely and death and are asking just one question — why he did that? The 34-year actor was the youngest of five siblings and is now survived by his father and four sisters. Sushant Singh Rajput’s body was taken to Mumbai’s Cooper Hospital where the post-mortem was performed that took place from 10:30 pm to around 11:30 pm on Sunday. He has also tested negative for COVID-19. The last rites of the actor will be performed in Mumbai today. The last rites will be performed on Monday now that his father and other family members have arrived in Mumbai from Patna.
It has come to light that the last thing Sushant consumed before ending his life was a glass of juice on Sunday morning, at around 10. Then, he locked himself up in his bedroom. He did not respond despite repeated knocks on the door by his domestic help, who then called neighbours. The police arrived shortly afterward and broke into Sushant’s flat around 12.30 pm and found him hanging. The police have said there was no suicide note. Sushant was suffering from depression from the last six months and also undergoing treatment in Hinduja Hospital.
