Sushant Singh Rajput suicide: Case filed against Salman Khan, Karan Johar, others in Bihar court


Patna: In connection with Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case, a case has been filed against Bollywood biggies Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali,  Bhushan Kumar and Ekta Kapoor. Advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha has filed a complaint under Sections 306, 109, 504 & 506 of IPC in connection with the actor’s death in a court in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur.

The court had fixed July 3 as the next date of hearing. In his complaint filed in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha alleged that these  persons forced Sushant to commit suicide under a conspiracy which, he pleaded, amounted to murder.

The complainant claimed that these persons did not let Sushant’s movies get released under a conspiracy and the late actor was not even invited to film functions because of these people.

Speaking to ANI, the lawyer said, “In the complaint, I have alleged that Sushant Singh Rajput was removed from around seven films and some of his films were not released. Such a situation was created which forced him to take the extreme step.”

Interestingly, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has claimed that Sushant lost seven films, which he had signed. “He lost the films in just six months. Why? The film industry’s ruthlessness works on a very different level. And that ruthlessness took the life of one talented person,” Nirupam tweeted.

The 34-year-old actor was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14. Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has assured that Mumbai Police will investigate professional rivalry in the suicide case.

The Patna-born actor made his Bollywood debut with ‘Kai Po Che’. The deceased actor played the lead roles in ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, Kedarnath and ‘Chhichhore’.

Following Sushant’s shocking demise several film personalities, including Kangana Ranaut, Abhinav Kashyap, Prakash Raj and several others have opened up on the practice of nepotism in the film industry.
