INDIA NEWS: A Muzaffarpur court has turned down a petition filed against Bollywood celebrities Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor, Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali among others, of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide. Mukesh Kumar, the Chief Judicial Magistrate deemed that the matter lay outside the court’s jurisdiction and has dismissed the petition filed by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha,
The petition was filed barely three days after the 34-year-old actor’s death who was found hanging from the ceiling of his Mumbai residence on June 14. Advocate Ojha named among the “witnesses”, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, who has been a vocal advocate of blaming nepotism and favouritism in the film industry for the tragic suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput. Ojha has in the past been responsible for a variety of petitions against the high-profile Indian film and political personalities and has previously targeted foreign heads of states. Some of his cases have not progressed further than the admission stage, in the matter of the current petition, Sudhir Kumar Ojha has moved to challenge the CJM’s order.
“I will challenge the CJM’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 told reporters.
Residents of Bihar, the birthplace of Sushant Singh Rajput, have called foul play in the Patna-born actor’s death with some seeking a CBI inquiry.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s Dil Bechara trailer promises a heartwarming love story also stars Sanjana Sanghi. The movie previously titled Kizie Aur Manny will premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar on July 24. The Indian movie takes viewers on a journey of two hopeless romantics, Kizzie and Manny, who meet at a cancer support group.
