About a week before his suicide, actor Sushant Singh Rajput searched three topics repeatedly on Google: His name in news reports, the name of his former manager Disha Salian who had committed suicide, and information about mental illness, a top police officer told The Indian Express.

According to the officer, on June 14, even a few hours before committing suicide, Sushant had googled his name.

According to the late actor’s lawyer, Vikas Singh, Disha’s death did have an impact on him. Sushant also said that he feared being implicated in Disha’s death.

His former girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande, has come forth and said that Sushant would be badly affected by the “blind” news items carried in the media about him. Lokhande added that Sushant was “very emotional about his career and everything. He was even affected by what people used to say about our relationship. He would be affected by what people would write about him. A boy, who came from outside and made it big solely due to his hard work, how would he be unaffected by such things?”

According to a statement of Siddharth Pithani, Sushant’s friend who had been living in the same house, the actor had been prescribed medicines by his psychiatrists.

Apart from Pithani, the police also took statements from Rhea Chakraborty (his last girlfriend), Sushant’s father K.K. Singh, and sisters Neetu and Meetu Singh, among others. His father has also accused Rhea Chakraborty and her family members of abetment of suicide, cheating the actor mentally and financially.
