Citing media reports claiming that late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput battled clinical depression induced by professional rivalry, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Tuesday said Mumbai Police will probe this angle as well.
Deshmukh took to Twitter and said though the postmortem report has confirmed he died by suicide, the depression angle will be probed too.

Rajput passed away by suicide at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on Sunday. However, no suicide note has been recovered from Rajput's residence, police said.
The provisional postmortem report of Rajput has revealed that the provisional cause of death was asphyxia due to hanging, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abhishek Trimukhe.
The actor had appeared in a number of acclaimed films, including Sonchiriya and MS Dhoni: An Untold Story. Rajput's last big-screen appearance was Nitesh Tiwari's 2019 film Chhichhore.
Filmmaker Anand Kumar, who has directed such films as Zilla Ghaziabad and Delhii Heights, had zeroed in on Rajput for his biopic on former Indian football team captain Bhaichung Bhutia. However, the lockdown in the country, necessitated by the COVID-19 crisis, had delayed the project.
