Amidst the increasing pressure over their handling of the Sushant Singh Rajput case, the under-fire Mumbai police has finally responded to certain contentious alleged inaction. After his lawyer Vikas Singh, Sushant Singh Rajput’s father K.K Singh has now spoken for the first time, claiming that he had approached the Bandra police on 25 February, 2020 expressing concerns over his son’s well being. A few hours after K.K. Singh’s video went viral, Mumbai police has issued a press release acknowledging receiving a Whats App message from Rajput’s brother-in-law OP Singh, but the Rajput family never lodged an official complaint at the Bandra Police Station.
The release issued by Shahaji Umap, DCP Operations, states that It was not K.K. Singh but his son-in-law OP Singh who had sent an informal message to then DCP, Zone 9, Mumbai. According to the release, the then DCP had requested OP Singh to file an written complaint but the family never did that nor did they lodge any complaint at the Bandra police station.
