Actor-turned-politician Manoj Tiwari, who is in poll-bound Bihar to campaign for the Bharatiya Janata Party, has claimed that there is a hand of Congress party behind the ‘murder’ of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found dead on June 14 in Mumbai.
While campaigning for the party in Bihar’s Banka district, Tiwari added that the activeness of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar helped in registering the FIR in the case.
He further urged people to cast their votes in favour of the candidates of the BJP and other alliance partners of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to form the government under the leadership of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Manoj Tiwari started the election campaign for the BJP in Bihar on Sunday by launching a song ‘Suna Ho Bihar ke Bhaiya’, the remake of his original song ‘Jiya Ho Bihar ke Lala’.
Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who hailed from Bihar, was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai’s Bandra area on June 14. The Mumbai Police had filed an accidental death report (ADR) under Section 174 of the Criminal Procedure Code and declared that the actor had committed suicide. However, Sushant’s father, KK Singh, registered a complaint with the Bihar Police on July 25, leading to the registration of FIR against his son’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and others.
Sushant Singh Rajput case
Last week, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) rejected reports that claimed the federal agency is likely to file a closure report in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. The CBI had filed a case on August 6 after a notification from the Centre in view of the Bihar government’s request on the basis of a complaint filed by KK Singh in Patna.
In a statement, CBI spokesperson RK Gaur said: “The CBI continues to investigate the death of Sushant. There are certain speculative reports in the media that the CBI has reached a conclusion. It may be reiterated that these reports are speculative and erroneous.”
Earlier, the forensic team of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) led by Dr Sudhir Gupta had dismissed the murder angle in the actor’s death case.
Besides the CBI, the Narcotics Control Bureau and the Enforcement Directorate are also investigating the drugs and money-laundering angle in connection with the actor’s death, respectively.
