Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on 14th June 2020. There have been a lot of speculations and reports about his demise. We all know that Kangana Ranaut has been claiming that Sushant decided to take a step like suicide because of nepotism in the industry and because he was cornered by movie mafias.
However, recently while talking to Zoom TV, Sushant’s family lawyer, Vikas Singh, had something totally opposite to say. He said, “To my knowledge, Kangana has not contacted the family but if in some other day she has contacted some other member of the family then I might not know. Kangana has not contacted my client, Mr. KK Singh.”
Talking about the whole nepotism debate, he further stated, “That’s a different angle completely. If tomorrow the Mumbai police feels that any outsider or any person who comes from a small town to this industry needs protection and they feel like it is a cognizable offense, then they can go ahead and do that angle. In my legal mind, it really does not require the police to go into this matter. Maybe an Actors’ Association or Producers’ Association can take up this matter, but I don’t think that this case has anything to do with what Kangana has suggested or anybody else is talking about.”
“This may have affected Sushant in a small way but that can’t be the crime. Even if it was, you have to first decide what crime it would be under the IPC and if there is no cognizable offense then the police have no jurisdiction to do this so-called questioning. I think the Mumbai police has done a very shoddy job investigation by calling in people from the industry making them wait for hours and asking them questions on trivial issues this is going nowhere in Sushant’s suicide matter,” the lawyer added.
Well, till now, in Sushant’s case, Mumbai Police has investigated many Bollywood celebs like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aditya Chopra, Rhea Chakraborty, Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Chhabra, Sanjana Sanghi, and others. There were also reports that Karan Johar has also been summoned to give his statement.
