Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, committed suicide on June 14 last month, after this, a lawyer described his suicide as premeditated murder. Bihar lawyer Sudhir Kumar Ojha had filed a petition in a local court in Muzaffarpur, declaring the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput as a premeditated murder by Bollywood personalities. Sudhir Kumar Ojha had filed a petition under various sections 306, 109, 504 and 506, accusing Bollywood personalities of forcing Sushant Singh to commit suicide under a conspiracy and also of killing the actor.
In his petition, the lawyer had nominated eight personalities including filmmaker Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actors Salman Khan and Ekta Kapoor, while he had also nominated actress Kangana Ranaut as a witness. The petitioner had claimed in his petition that Sushant Singh Rajput was removed from 7 films and some films were not released which created a situation which forced Sushant Singh to take extreme steps.
The Muzaffarpur court, hearing the petition on July 8, declared the petition unnecessary. According to the Indian Express, the Chief Judicial Magistrate, while hearing the petition of Sudhir Kumar Ojha, declared the petition out of the jurisdiction of the court. The court rejected Sudhir Kumar's appeal, disqualifying him from hearing, but also announced that he would go to the high courts against the local court's decision.
Sudhir Kumar said that he would challenge the decision of the Judicial Magistrate in the district court, as the people of Bihar were shocked by the death of Sushant Singh Rajput and wanted to see those who have been brought to justice. His autopsy report also confirmed the suicide. After his suicide, people across India were shocked and people rained down accusations on Bollywood celebrities, alleging that they had deliberately created such a situation that Sushant Singh committed suicide out of frustration.
Mumbai police had launched an investigation into Sushant Singh's suicide and so far police have recorded the statements of more than 30 personalities, but it is not yet clear what were the issues that led to the actor suffering from severe depression and he committed suicide. Sushant Singh Rajput had acted in barely a dozen films and the trailer of his last film Dil Bechara was released on July 6 and the said film will be released on July 24 on the web streaming website.
