Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise had triggered a series of accusations, protests and debates in Bollywood and amongst his fans. Although reports have confirmed that his death was due to suicide, people are demanding a higher level of investigation. Even after almost a month, the fire in his fans continues to burn as they call for a CBI enquiry in the case. His fans recently started trending #CBIForSonOfBihar on twitter. People are sharing the hashtag with posts like, ‘Indian Public’s voice is being ignored’, ‘Not all depressed people commit suicide and his culprits are using this to mask the crime’ and more.
Not only fans but many of his Bollywood counterparts, friends and even politicians have been urging the Government to allow the CBI to take up the case and investigate. Recently, former Cabinet Minister Subramanian Swamy also took to Twitter and said that he has appointed an advocate to look into the matter.
Sushant Singh Rajput hanged himself at his Mumbai home on June 14. No suicide note was found after his death in his apartment. His funeral was held the next day on June 15 which was attended by his family, friends and Bollywood counterparts. His family also hosted a prayer meet in his honour.
Mumbai Police have been investigating the case and has even questioned many people which include his rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Mukesh Chhabra, Shekhar Kapur and others.
