Sushant Singh Rajput was found at his apartment in Bandra, Mumbai on June 14, and his sudden untimely demise left the nation shocked. While the investigation is taking place, several twists and turns, as well as statements of people linked to the actor are being reported. The case took another turn when Sushant’s father filed an FIR in Bihar, accusing Rhea Chakraborty of abetting Sushant’s suicide, among other accusations. Now, Sushant’s former cook has revealed that he did not see Sushant take any medicine till the time he worked there.
While speaking to ANI on Saturday, Sushant’s former cook Ashok said, “I was working as a cook in Sushant's house and I am a chef. I worked for three-four years with him up till September 2019. Everything seemed fine till I was working there, neither did I see him taking any medicine during that time. I don't know what happened afterward.” He also said that till the time he was working for Sushant, the actor was in touch with his family. “Even, I spoke to his family members on some occasions when they used to call him. He was a strong man and how can he be depressed?" said Ashok.
He was also asked about the accusations leveled against Rhea Chakraborty, to which Ashok replied, “The accusations levied against Rhea seem incorrect as I did not witness any such thing during my time at Rajput's house. Whatever is being reported, none of it happened while I was working there. I have given my statement to Mumbai and Bihar Police."
In the FIR, Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh also accused Rhea of overdosing Sushant with the medicines of mental illness in 2019 and then staging a dengue story. Meanwhile, according to Republic, Sushant’s friend Siddharth Pithani’s statement about who used to give Sushant the medicines, contradict those of the staff members. Read more about it here.
