Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely and tragic death sent a shockwave amongst the entire nation. With the case taking a new turn every day and so many shocking revelations coming to the surface, the late actor’s family was demanding for CBI probe which was finally granted by the Supreme Court.
Now Sushant’s family lawyer, Vikas Singh has stated that the actor’s former flatmate and friend Siddharth Pithani will also be named as a co-conspirator in the FIR. Read on to know the details.
A month after Sushant’s death, his father KK Singh had filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and few others accusing them of abetment of suicide. But later on, they raised suspicion on Sushant being killed. Now in an interview with Pinkvilla, Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh has said that the late actor’s former flatmate and friend Siddharth Pithani will also be named as a co-conspirator in the FIR.
Vikas went on to say that the actor’s family started suspecting it as murder only after Siddharth Pithani changed his stance. Earlier, Rhea had refuted all the allegations levelled against her by Sushant’s family. Commenting on the same, Vikas told the entertainment portal, “We are not interested in her self-certification and how can she give herself a certificate when ED is still investigating the case, but I am sure truth will prevail and CBI has begun its investigation up until now the Mumbai police was handling with kids gloves.”
Interestingly, the same report even stated that Rhea was named as a nominee in Sushant Singh Rajput’s insurance. The actress had even cited in her plea to Supreme Court that she was in a live-in relationship with Sushant. Reacting on the actress being a nominee in Sushant’s insurance, Vikas said, “She cannot be the beneficiary. Indian laws do not entitle such persons to be legal heirs without a will.”
Today, the Supreme Court has ordered a CBI probe in Sushant’s death case and it has asked Mumbai Police to comply with its orders.
