Earlier, Sandip had clarified in a post why he was talking to the ambulance driver when Sushant’s mortal remains were taken. “Everyone is saying that your family does not know me. Yes, its correct, I never met your family. Is it my fault to help a grieving sister alone in this city to complete the final rites of a brother ? Just want to end the speculation why I was talking to the ambulance driver despite his statement.”

In his earlier post, he had written, “On 14th June when I heard about you I was unable to stop myself and I rushed to your house in grief but was shocked to see no one present except Mittu Didi. I am still thinking whether I was wrong to stand by your sister in that critical time or I should have waited for your other friends to come.”

Sandip had also made his personal chat with Sushant public and feeling sorry that he had to prove his friendship and their equation like this. “Sorry bhai, my silence has broken 20 years of my image and family into pieces. I was unaware that friendship requires a certificate in today’s time. Today I am making our personal chats public, as this is the last resort which proves our equation,” He wrote.

Sandip is one of the few closest friends of Sushant. He has always been there through the actor’s thick and thin and was also close to Sushant’s former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande. After the actor’s demise, Sandip was there by his family and even made arrangements of the funeral.
