Late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's last rites were performed at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Vile Parle, Mumbai, on Monday. His father and other family members arrived in Mumbai from Patna the night before.
As reported earlier by IANS, Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his residence on Sunday morning by his domestic help. As details about his final hours emerged, it has come to light that the last thing Sushant consumed before ending his life was a glass of juice on Sunday morning, at around 10. Then, he locked himself up in his bedroom, according to the India Today website.
He did not respond despite repeated knocks on the door by his domestic help, who then called neighbours. The police arrived shortly afterwards and broke into Sushant's flat around 12.30pm and found him hanging. The police have said there was no suicide note. The actor's mortal remains were then taken to Cooper Hospital in the city for conducting postmortem.
Sushant Singh Rajput was reportedly battling depression over the past few months and undergoing treatment for the same. His social media posts from the past couple of months reveal that he even tried yoga and meditation to battle his state of mind.
News of Sushant's demise comes within days of the news of his manager Disha Salian's death.
