Sushant Singh Rajput death case: PIL in Supreme Court seeks CBI status report

A PIL has been filed in the Supreme Court on Monday to direct the CBI to submit a status report in the case of the death of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

The petition was filed jointly by Mumbai resident Puneet Kaur Dhanda and her husband, Supreme Court advocate Vineet Dhanda.

"This Hon’ble Court passed an order for CBI inquiry on 19th of August 2020 and despite lapsing of almost four months the Central Bureau of Investigation is yet to conclude its investigation and all the eager family members, fans, well-wishers of the late actor are yet to get a solace regarding the exact reason of the death of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput,” the petition reads.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead on June 14, 2020 at his residence in Mumbai. The CBI, ED and NCB are investigating the Sushant case.

Nothing has been clear so far in the case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The review petitions filed on the charges of conspiracy to kill the actor were heard in the court of ADJ One on Thursday. The court has fixed December 9 for the next hearing.

Advocates of accused filmmakers Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ekta Kapoor, Bhushan Kumar and Sajid Nadiadwala appeared in the Session court.

On August 14, advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed a revision suit in the District and Sessions Court against eight film personalities, including Salman.
