Meanwhile, sources in the FSL said the viscera report did not find anything suspicious in the actor’s death.

“It seems it is a suicide case. Now we are collecting evidences from his mobile phone and the cyber department is working on it to find out if messages or videos were deleted from his mobile phone,” they said.

Earlier in the day, the police recorded the statement of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt in connection with the actor’s death case.

Rajput was found dead on June 14 at his flat in suburban Bandra.
