Kirti also revealed that she is still trying to cope with the death of her brother. “How much ever you try to stay strong, but at times this strong pain takes over that Bhai is actually not there anymore. Will never be able to touch him or see him laugh or listen to him cracking jokes… I wonder how long will it take to heal completely. Have decided to take 10 days off from being online and immerse myself in deep meditation and prayers. Really need to heal from this pain,” read her post.
Wellwishers soon wrote back to Shweta Singh Kirti, asking her to take care of herself.

Sending strength and love your way!”
Sushant Singh Rajput
Kriti’s brother and popular actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14. Since his demise, Kirti has been running an online campaign demanding probe into her brother’s death. On August 13, she posted a video appeal on social media, seeking an “unbiased” CBI probe into her brother’s death. The 43-second video released ahead of the Supreme Court hearing of actor Rhea Chakraborty’s plea for transfer of the FIR against her from Patna to Mumbai, showed Kirti demanding“justice for Sushant.”
On August 19, the Supreme Court of India ordered CBI to investigate the actor’s death. Reacting to the news, Kirti tweeted, “Thank you God! You have answered our prayers!! But it is just the beginning… the first step towards the truth! Full faith on CBI!!”
Currently, investigation on various angles in this death is being carried out by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED), and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). On September 10, Rajput’s former girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by NCB in its drug probe. In September 15, it was reported that Chakraborty has named actors Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, and designer Simone Khambatta in the case. Chakraborty is to stay in custody till September 22, since her bail plea was rejected last week.
