Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case: Maharashtra government orders probe into 'conspiracy to defame state'
New Delhi : Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh on Tuesday announced an investigation into "the conspiracy to defame Mumbai and Maharashtra police" over the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, while blaming the whole thing on Bharatiya Janata Party.
Mr Deshmukh also demanded an apology from former Chief Minister of the state Devendra Fadnavis and BJP for defaming them during the investigation of the case. He said Mumbai police’s crime branch and cyber-crime branch of the Maharashtra police will conduct the probe.
Earlier, on Tuesday, Hindustan Times in one of its report claimed that the cyber police has submitted a report that shows around 70,000 fake social media accounts which were created across nine countries as part of an "orchestrated campaign" to discredit the force and Maharashtra government over the investigation into the death.
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14 under mysterious condition, giving birth to speculations that he may have been murdered.
Mumbai Police called several members of the film industry for questioning before the actor’s family filed a police complaint in Bihar alleging a conspiracy behind the death and blamed his friend, actor Rhea Chakraborty, for it.
However, on Sunday, AIIMS panel has rejected the possibility of Sushant Singh Rajput's murder after analysing the final medical reports.
