The Mumbai Police has arrested a Delhi resident for allegedly spreading fake news on the Sushant Singh Rajput case. The Twitter account of the accused, Vibhor Anand, has been suspended for violating the social media platform's guidelines.

He had made sensational and defamatory allegations on social media and concocted fake conspiracy theories in the death cases of Sushant and his former manager Disha Salian, police sources told NDTV.

The accused has been brought to Mumbai.

Sushant was found dead in his apartment on June 14. The case that was being probed by the Mumbai Police, was later handed over to the CBI. The Enforcement Directorate and Narcotics Control Bureau are also probing other aspects of the case.

"A fake narrative started in the media that Mumbai police did a bad job- we faced a lot of abuse. We were always sure of our investigation," NDTV quoted Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh as saying.
