Singh had also met Kumar seeking CBI investigation in the case.

A PIL has been filed before Bombay HC in this regard.

The hearing, which was scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed due to heavy rains in Mumbai.

In a self-made video, Singh alleged the accused in actor's death case is on the loose.

An FIR was registered by Bihar Police on Singh's complaint against actor Rhea Chakraborty under several sections of IPC including abetment of suicide.

Bihar Police started the investigation and dispatched a team to Mumbai.

So far, Bihar Police recorded statements of Sushant’s friend and creative content manager Siddharth Pithani, actor's sister, former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, director Rumi Jaffrey, his cook, friends and doctor.

Related to drugs, case can be filed only over casual consumers. Rhea could be charged with huge case if she was involved in a syndicate. By examining photos, AIIMS doctor had said it was death by strangulation. CBI normally issues press statement in such a huge case. CBI has not issued a press statement till now, it is very serious. CBI won’t reveal findings; family is also unable to do anything. NCB is calling big stars, I don’t think there will be a huge case," said Sushant's family lawyer Vikas Singh.
