The Supreme Court on Monday asked a petitioner seeking a court-monitored CBI inquiry into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s former manager Disha Salian to approach the Bombay High Court.
Disha, 28, died on June 8 after falling off the 14th floor of a residential building in Malad in west Mumbai. Six days later, on June 14, 34-year-old Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra home.
The matter came up for hearing before a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde.
The petition was filed by advocate Puneet Dhanda who claimed that the deaths of Salian and Rajput are interconnected as they occurred under suspicious circumstances.
Advocate Vineet Dhanda, appearing for the petitioner, said a CBI probe was ordered in a similar connected case.
According to the plea, after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, various rumours and conspiracy theories have been linked between the deaths of Disha and Sushant, because both died in suspicious circumstances and at the peak of their successful professional career.
