In the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana, Sanjay Raut had questioned the reason for Ankita Lokhande's split with Sushant Singh Rajput. He said that KK Singh's second marriage was unacceptable to Sushant, which is why he rarely visited his family in Patna.

When it is decided to politicise an incident, one cannot say to what extent it can be done and "this is what is happening in the unfortunate suicide of Rajput", he said.

An FIR had been registered against Rhea Chakraborty at Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna under various sections, including abetment to suicide on the complaint of Rajput's father.

According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), 4,77,023 samples were tested on August 9 while over 2.45 crore samples have been tested so far.

Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) Gupteshwar Pandey had accused the Mumbai Police of being unprofessional in their action of quarantining Tiwari and said that he was being kept as if he was arrested.

Rhea, via her lawyer Satish Maneshinde, had requested for the postponement of the ED summon until the Supreme Court hearing.

Bihar Government, in its affidavit before the Supreme Court, has said that the state government has the jurisdiction to investigate the matter.

Initially, an accidental death case was registered which was later converted into FIR under section 306 (abetment of suicide) of IPC against a person and a company, the police said.

In another development in the case, Patna Superintendent of Police (SP) Vinay Tiwari, who is heading a team probing the case related to the actor's death, was home quarantined by the municipal authorities in Mumbai.

This comes a day after Rhea moved a petition in the top court seeking directions to transfer the investigation in the FIR filed by Rajput's family in Bihar to the Mumbai Police.
