Sushant Singh Rajput's Instagram account memorialised by photo-sharing app after actor's death
Sushant Singh Rajput was last seen on screen in Nitesh Tiwari's Chhichhore.
Photo-sharing application Instagram 'memorialised' Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's account, who passed away in Mumbai recently.
Once Instagram memorialises an account, nobody is allowed log in access and 'remembering' is added next to the name of the deceased individual.
According to Instagram, posts shared by the deceased person cannot be modified once it gets memorialised and the posts remain visible to the audience that it was originally shared with.
Rajput allegedly died by suicide on 14 June, Mumbai Police said. Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had said that the police will also probe the angle of "professional rivalry" which was alleged to be the cause of the suicide.
Investigations in the untimely demise of the actor is currently underway. The police have recorded the statements of Dil Bechara director Mukesh Chhabra and Rhea Chakraborty.
A lawyer in Bihar on 17 June filed a criminal complaint against eight people, including Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor, Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for allegedly abetting the suicide of Rajput.
