Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s article on Sushant Singh Rajput, in the party’s mouthpiece Saamna, is grabbing eyeballs due to his statements on the late actor’s father K.K. Singh. Raut has said that he has sympathies for Sushant’s father but there are “many things that will come to surface”.
Raut said that Sushant was not on good terms with his father. “It is true, how many times Sushant went to Patna to meet his father? I have sympathy for his father but there are many things that will come to surface,” Raut told ANI, about his article stating that Sushant was not on good terms with his father.
He added that it is wrong to see the unfortunate suicide from a political angle. “His father's second marriage was not acceptable to him (Rajput). Let the facts come out how many times Rajput visited his family in Patna. Why did (Rajput's former girlfriend) Ankita Lokhande split from Rajput and this should be part of the probe,” he wrote.
Sushant’s mother passed away in 2002, and the actor shared social media posts dedicated to his mother. In fact, his last social media post was a photo of her. "Blurred past evaporating from teardrops. Unending dreams carving an arc of smile. And a fleeting life, negotiating between the two... #माँ," he captioned the photo.
Raut’s comments come as the CBI registered FIR against actress Rhea Chakaborty and the others after the Centre accepted Bihar government’s plea for CBI probe. Maharashtra government had ruled out CBI probe.
The Enforcement Directorate is set to interrogate Rhea a second time on Monday. The ED is probing a case of alleged money laudering based on the FIR lodged by Patna police based on Sushant’s father’s complaints.
The Centre’s ‘interference’ in Sushant’s case was an insult of the Mumbai Police, he claimed, adding the CBI may be a central agency, but it ‘wasn't independent and impartial’, he added.
