As the investigation into the circumstances of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death continues, Mumbai police have now taken the statements of three psychiatrists and a psychotherapist, news agency ANI quoted the DCP as saying.
“Bandra police has recorded statements of three psychiatrists and one psychotherapist in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput death case”, said Abhishek Trimukhe, DCP Zone 9, Mumbai.
At current, the police have recorded over 35 statements from people related to Rajput.
Earlier, Sushant Singh Rajput’s psychiatrist, Dr Kersi Chavda, had rubbished claims by some media houses that he had disclosed patient records of Rajput being diagnosed as bipolar. The doctor took to the social media platform, Facebook, to quash all rumours against him. He stated that he has never breached doctor-patient confidentiality especially Rajput’s sessions. Supporting his claims, the doctor attached a screenshot of a conversation, where Mumbai Police DCP Abhishek Trimukhe, advises a journalist that the doctor’s statement hasn’t been recorded just yet.
“DCP zone 9…Abhishek Trimukhe, under whose purview I spoke all of three minutes… had made this statement to the media… which was conveniently not posted. So… I have not even made a statement. It is incredible how much filth there is in the media… wherein the most basic “confidentiality issue” between a client and a therapist… is just trampled upon with great impunity. So Dr Chavda… the infamous one… has done nothing that could have caused so much anguish and heartache in people. De Chavda is a professional who is ethical…”, read the statement.
