Kundan Kumar, a resident of Patahi locality in Muzaffarpur, filed his petition before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Mukesh Kumar. It has been posted for hearing on June 24.
This is the second petition filed before the CJM’s court in the north Bihar town of Muzaffarpur in connection with the death of the Patna-born actor. He was found dead at his residence in Mumbai on June 14.
Earlier this week, a local advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha had filed a similar petition naming Bollywood bigwigs Salman Khan, Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ekta Kapoor as accused. Ojha had alleged that the heavyweights had tried to stall the career of the upcoming star.
