Moreover, Bihar police director-general Gupteshwar Pandey on Thursday said the SP has still not been exempted from home quarantine and they may consider taking the legal route on the issue.
The actor, aged 34, died at his home in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14. Several political leaders and film personalities have demanded a CBI probe into his death.
Actor Rajput’s suspected death by suicide has also triggered a debate on alleged nepotism and favouritism in the Hindi film industry. Several top production houses had allegedly boycotted the Patna-born actor, causing him distress and compelling him to end his life.
