One of the prime witnesses in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput 's murder, a keymaker who unlocked the actor's door on June 14, admitted that he was not allowed to enter the room and was told to leave the place immediately.
The keymaker, identified as Rafique Chabiwala, told Zee News that he had received a call from Sidharth Pithani at about 1:05 p.m. on June 14, asking him to open the door of his residence in Bandra. Rafique said that he asked the caller to share a image of the door lock on his WhatsApp number.
He said he did not know before then that the house belonged to Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput. He also reported that he did not know the name of the caller at the time , but later came to learn that it was Sidharth Pithani after multiple media reports said it.
The keymaker said it was a computerized lock, so he had to crack it with a hammer. He was given Rs 2,000 and told to leave the position as soon as he cut the lock. As per Rafique, he was not allowed to see or enter the space of the actor and was taken away from there.
He said that the actor 's sister was present in the house when he left the location.
Speaking of the CBI probe of the murder, the keymaker said that he had not yet got a call from the Probe Agency. He said, however, that if he was informed, he would meet with the police. His comments were reported by the Mumbai Police, who had been investigating the case earlier.
