CBI will also demand statements of everyone who spoke to Mumbai police.

As the Supreme Court ordered a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput on Wednesday, the CBI is set to write to the Mumbai Police to get hold of all the evidence and statements it recorded in the last two months.

Sources said that the agency will demand the statements of all the persons whose statements were recorded in the last two months and the electronic devices of the late actor which are with the Mumbai Police.

The 34-year-old actor was found dead at his flat in Mumbai's Bandra on June 14. The CBI has already recorded the statements of Sushant's father K.K. Singh and his elder sister Rani Singh last week.

The agency has also registered a case against his girlfriend Rhea Chkraborty, her brother Showik, her father Indrajit, her mother Sandhya, Sushant's house manager Samuel Miranda and ex-manager Shruti Modi and unknown others on August 6 on the basis of the Bihar government's recommendation for a CBI probe.

The Central government gave its nod for a CBI probe on August 5. The Enforcement Directorate has also registered a case of money laundering in the case on July 31 on the basis of the Bihar Police FIR on the complaint of Sushant's father. The ED has also recorded the statements of Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Indrajit, Shruti Modi, Sushant's sister Meetu Singh and others.
