Mumbai: After receiving a legal notice from Sushant Singh Rajput’s family member Shivsena leader Sanjay Raut said he is making statements in the actor’s death case based on information he has and added that he will look into the matter if he has missed something.
“If there is any kind of omission on our part, we will think about it. But I have to look into it. Everything I have said so far is based on the information I have. Sushant’s family is speaking on the basis of information they have,” Raut told reporters here.
He said that a conspiracy has been hatched to defame the Maharashtra government.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Anish Jha, a lawyer for the deceased actor’s relative, BJP MLA Neeraj Kumar Singh, said Raut has been given 48 hours to apologize for his recent statements in the case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
“His (Sushant’s) case is being investigated, but people do not want the truth to come out. If for some political pressure or any other reason, he has made some controversial statement, he should apologize within 48 hours, So we will not take any further action (against him). Everyone makes mistakes so we have sent a notice to him first, “he said.
Jha’s remark comes after Raut alleged that relations between the late actor and his father were tense and also accused the Director General of Police of Bihar (DGP) of acting as a party spokesperson.
The Supreme Court has asked the Centre and Maharashtra and Bihar governments that, in a petition filed by Rhea Chakraborty in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the respondents filed a written note of all earlier decisions compiled before the court on 13 August.
A single bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy, hearing Rhea’s plea seeking transfer of the investigation in the case lodged against her in the case from Patna to Mumbai, asked all parties to file a written note of all such earlier decisions on Thursday.
Earlier, the apex court had directed the governments of the Center, Bihar and Maharashtra, Mumbai Police, and the father of Sushant Singh Rajput to file their reply on the petition of actor Riya Chakravarthy in the case.
