The lawyer of K.K. Singh doesn’t say it in a clear tone, but suspects that the late actor didn’t commit suicide but he could have been murdered.

As the Supreme Court continues to hear Rhea Chakraborty’s petition, K.K. Singh’s lawyer made some stunning arguments while pressing the case for his client.
The Supreme Court is currently listening to all arguments while adjudicating over the petition of Rhea Chakraborty, seeking transfer of the FIR in Patna to Mumbai. Vikas Singh, the lawyer of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father K.K. Singh subtly hinted that perhaps Rajput may have been murdered.
Arguing for K.K. SIngh, Vikas Singh said in the court, “Father and sister of Sushant Singh Rajput were alienated. Father repeatedly wanted to talk to Sushant but Rhea did not reply. She had already distanced the sister. Look at the mark on his neck its a belt mark not a rope! If he was murdered it needs to be investigated.”
K.K Singh had filed a FIR in Patna on 25 July accusing Chakraborty and her family of fraud, cheating and abetting his son’s suspected suicide.
Defending the Patna’s police right for conducting a parallel probe into an ongoing investigation in Mumbai, Vikas Singh quoted his client’s words, “I am from Patna and without my son I have no one to light my funeral pyre. This itself shows that Patna [police] has jurisdiction.”
“No one has seen my son hanging. When my daughter reached, Sushant was lying on the bed. This needs investigation. As soon as mourning is over, he registered the FIR in Patna,” said Vikas Singh on behalf of his client.
Meanwhile, speaking to media via a virtual conference, Vikas Singh also reminded that the rumours of Maharasthra chief minister’s son perhaps being linked to the deaths of Rajput and his former manager Disha Salian, is not not whipped by the Rajput family. “In their argument, Rhea’s legal counsel spoke of rumours of a [Maharashtra] chief minister’s son being falsely linked to the case. But we’ve been gracious enough as we haven’t mentioned such rumours in our petition,” said the Rajput family lawyer.
After listenting to all arguments, the Supreme Court has reserved its verdict and asked all parties to file a gist of their arguments in a writing with the apex court likely to pass an order on Thursday, 13 August.
Rajput was found dead on 14 June in his Mumbai apartment.
