As reported by ANI, Vikas Singh, Ex-Addl Solicitor General and the lawyer of Rajput’s father makes stunning disclosure that raises tough questions over the probe being conducted by the Mumbai police
By Our Correspondent
A day after Sushant Singh Rajput’s father K.K. Singh levied stunning allegations against actor Rhea Chakraborty in his FIR filed on 25 July at the Rajeev Nagar police station, Patna, the family lawyer has questioned the probe being conducted by the Mumbai police.
Vikas Singh, Ex-Addl Solicitor General, and the lawyer of Rajput’s father K. K. Singh, has accused Mumbai police of being reluctant to file an FIR and forcing the family members to give names of production houses, as reported by ANI [news agency].
“FIR registered now as family was in shock & Mumbai Police wasn’t registering FIR, but forcing them to give names of big production houses & get them involved. It was heading in a different direction: Vikas Singh, Ex-Addl Solicitor General & lawyer of #SushantSinghRajput‘s father, ” ANI tweeted.
Singh also claimed that the Patna police was a little hesitant to act but it was Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and former Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha who explained the case to the Bihar police, who then decided to act in the matter.
“Patna Police was a little hesitant but CM Nitish Kumar & Minister Sanjay Jha explained the matter to them and FIR was registered. We want that the matter be investigated by Patna Police. The family has not demanded for CBI investigation yet: Lawyer of #SushantSinghRajput’s father,” Vikas Singh told ANI.
Efforts to reach out to DCP Abhishek Trimukhe, Mumbai police didn’t yield any response. Speaking on a Hindi news channel, former IPS officer RK Jain claimed that Rajput’s father didn’t disclose any such information to the Mumbai police, as claimed in his FIR in a Patna police station.
In another tweet, ANI, quoted Vnay Tiwari, Superintendent of Police, Patna (Central) City as saying, “FIR has been registered. Preliminary investigation has begun. It is not correct to say at this point of time that who will be questioned. All those who were named by #SushantSinghRajput’s father in the FIR, have been booked: Vinay Tiwari, Patna (Central) City SP. #Bihar””
Speaking to Beyond Bollywood earlier, Abhishek Trimukhe had claimed that thus far they have not been able to pin point a particular cause for Rajput’s depression. Rajput’s cousin brother and Bihar MLA Neeraj Kumar Singh Bablu had earlier told us that thus far the family had no concrete answers coming from the probe being conducted by Mumbai police.
In his FIR filed in Rajeev Nagar Police Station, Patna, K.K. Singh has accused Rhea Chakraborty and her family of fraud, cheating, and abetting his son’s suicide.
Post Rajput’s death, it has been buzzed, largely on social media, that perhaps the actor was a victim of nepotism. Various filmmakers, some producers -Aditya Chopra, Mahesh Bhatt, are among those who have been questioned in connection with the case. Rajput was found dead on 14 June in his Mumbai apartment. Thus far it has been treated as a case of suicide.
