Amid the ongoing investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput's death, sister Shweta Singh Kirti has decided to take a break from social media to heal from the pain of her brother's death.

Sushant Singh Rajput Case: CBI Team to Hold Meeting with AIIMS Forensic Team

In the ongoing probe into the death of the actor, the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) on Wednesday said that there was "no breach" on the part of Dr RN Cooper hospital and the Mumbai police in allowing Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakrabarty inside the mortuary of the hospital. The SHRC said that based on the details of the waiting area, all the protocols were duly followed. The matter, therefore, has been disposed off.

In the drug angle related to the case, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had summoned the late actor's former manager Shruti Modi and talent manager Jaya Saha for questioning on Wednesday. However, their questioning was called off after one of the team members of SIT tested positive for coronavirus. Shruti and Jaya were to be questioned about the drug use and delivery to Sushant and his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, who was arrested last Tuesday, and if they were aware of this.

The latest development comes in the wake of the arrest of over 15 people in connection with the case, including Rhea, her brother Showik Chakraborty, Sushant's house manager Samuel Miranda and several others. The NCB registered a case on the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after the alleged drug chats of Showik, Miranda and several others came to the fore.

Sushant was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14. Besides the CBI and the ED, the NCB is the third agency to probe the death case.

Sushant's personal life and past romantic relationships are also being discussed and scrutinised in the media regularly. Sara Ali Khan, who made her Bollywood debut with Sushant in Kedarnath, has also been in the limelight for allegedly dating her co-star for several months before breaking off due to unknown reasons. Now, Sara's name has also cropped up during Rhea Chakraborty's investigation with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

His sister Shweta Singh Kirti, one of the most vocal voices from her family demanding justice in her brother's death case, has said that she is taking 10 days off social media to heal the pain of losing her brother.
