Sushant Rajput suicide case Bihar court bins plea against Bollywood bigwigs

    (Eds: Upgrades story, recasts intro)
    Muzaffarpur (Bihar), Jul 8 (PTI) A Bihar court on
Wednesday dismissed a petition seeking registration of cases
against Bollywood bigwigs like Salman Khan, Ekta Kapoor,
Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar for allegedly abetting
actor Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, citing jurisdictional
    Chief Judicial Magistrate of Muzaffarpur Mukesh Kumar
dismissed the petition filed by local advocate Sudhir Kumar
Ojha, pointing out that the matter lay outside the courts
    In the petition filed barely three days after the 34
years old actor was found hanging from the ceiling of his
Mumbai residence on June 14, Ojha had also named among
"witnesses" Bollywood stormy petrel Kangana Ranaut who came
out with a couple of angry messages blaming nepotism and
favouritism in the film industry for the tragedy.
    A serial litigant, who has in the recent past come up
with petitions against top film and political personalities
and even foreign heads of states, few of which went beyond the
admission stage, Ojha remained unfazed by the CJMs order.
    "I will challenge the CJMs decision before the
district court. Bihar is in pain over the death of Sushant
Singh Rajput. We must act to bring those, who drove a jovial
young man like him to take such an extreme step, to justice",
he told reporters.
    Quite a few film personalities, especially those from
Bihar, have expressed apprehensions about foul play in the
Patna-born actors death and sought a CBI inquiry.
    These include Shekhar Suman and singer-turned-
politician and BJP MP Manoj Tiwari. PTI CORR NAC SNS
