Sushant Singh Rajput case LIVE updates | The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in its statement on Monday said that they are conducting a professional investigation related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput in which all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as of date. The remarks came after Sushant's family lawyer Vikas Singh said last week that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) probe is overshadowing and hindering the investigation to bring out the real truth in Sushant's death case. Meanwhile, sources have told Network 18 that 7 Bollywood A-listers, including some big-ticket producers, are likely to be summoned by the NCB in the next 48 hours in the ongoing drugs probe. Close to 50 celebrities from the entertainment business are under the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) scanner, sources say.

The anti-drug agency is also likely to be looking into the financial dealing of actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh and Sara Ali Khan. The agency has already questioned Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and TV couple Sanam Johar and Abigail Pandey in the initial rounds of questioning. No new summons have been issued by the NCB now and an official has said the team will be reviewing the case based on testimonies, arrests and evidence so far. The drug law enforcement agency's chief Rakesh Asthana arrived in Mumbai on Sunday to take stock of the probe.
