Anil issued a video on social media regarding the same and even wrote that since many media outlets are alleging that Sushant's suicide may be a case of clinical depression arising from professional rivalry, the investigation will not leave this aspect out. He wrote on Twitter on Monday evening, "While the post mortem report says actor @itsSSR committed suicide by hanging himself, there are media reports that he allegedly suffered from clinical depression because of professional rivalry. @MumbaiPolice will probe this angle too (sic)."

Meanwhile, Sushant's remains have been laid to rest in a crematorium in Vile Parle, Mumbai. His family members, including his father KK Singh, flew from Patna for their son's last rites that were performed on Monday evening.
