On Thursday, shortly after Sushant Singh Rajput's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty tweeted about his death, the hashtag #SSRCaseIsNotSuicide started to trend on Twitter.
Rhea Chakraborty tweeted tagging Home Minister Amit Shah, requesting him to initiate a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the actor's death. Even though Rhea has not mentioned the word "suicide" in her tweet, she has written, "I only want to understand what pressures, prompted Sushant to take this step."

"Respected @AmitShah sir, I'm Sushant Singh Rajput's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, it is now over a month since his sudden demise. I have complete faith in the government, however, in the interest of justice, I request you with folded hands to initiate a CBI enquiry."
"I request you with folded hands to initiate a CBI enquiry into this matter. I only want to understand what pressures, prompted Sushant to take this step. Yours sincerely #satyamevajayate @AmitShah, sir," wrote Rhea, in two separate tweets on her verified account.
Soon after this, the hashtag #SSRCaseIsNotSuicide started to trend on Twitter, with netizens declaring the actor did not commit suicide.
"Even in his interviews, Sushant's life motives and aim were clearly positive...Even knowing he is losing projects bcz of nepotism in Bollywood, he was sure that he will not leave his passion i.e. Acting. Stop fooling people that he committed suicide #SSRCaseIsNotSuicide," tweeted a user.
"We want CBI for Sushant murder case #SSRCaseIsNotSuicide," wrote another user.
Sushant was found hanging at his residence on June 14. The postmortem report stated that the actor committed suicide. The case is still being investigated by Mumbai Police.
Since last month, several politicians, celebrities and fans have demanded a CBI enquiry into Sushant's death.
