Mumbai: The Bihar court dismissed the petition filed in the Sushant Singh Rajput‘s suicide case against many Bollywood celebrities.
As per a report by news agency, PTI Muzaffarpur Chief Judicial Magistrate Mukesh Kumar on Wednesday dismissed the petition filed by local advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha, saying the matter was outside the jurisdiction of the court.
The petition was filed against Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ekta Kapoor, Salman Khan, Sajid Nadiadwala, and Aditya Chopra among others for allegedly abetting the actor’s suicide.
The petition also includes the name of Kangana Ranaut, who is one of the ‘witnesses’ in the case. Advocate Ojha, who filed the petition three days after Sushant’s death, mentioned that he was going to challenge the CMJ’s decision in the district court and bring justice to the son of Bihar.
“I will challenge the CMJ’s 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 said.
The Mumbai Police is still investigating the case as fans and admirers of the late actor prepare for a CBI inquiry. Those who are starting a conversation about a CBI probe in the SSR case include Shekhar Suman, Roopa Ganguly, Tarun Khanna, and other celebrities like Manoj Tiwari.
Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14 after hanging himself to the ceiling fan of his apartment at Bandra’s Mont Blanc building. He was 34 years old.
