He added that even his political party wants to know the truth and if the family and others are not satisfied after the Mumbai Police have completed the investigation, they can continue to ask for a CBI probe. “Sushant Singh Rajput was our son. He lived in Mumbai, he was an actor. Bollywood is Mumbai’s family. What enmity will we have? Even we want his family to get justice. We want the secret behind his death to come out: Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena,” said Raut.

Earlier, while writing a weekly column for Shiv Sena’s internal magazine Saamana, Raut questioned SSR’s relationship with his father. He said that a probe shall take place to find out why the late actor broke up with his former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande. Calling these statements false, SSR’s family released a nine-page letter that carried the entire journey of the family and how the family shifted from their village to the city to provide for their kids and make them successful people in life.
SSR’s cousin also sent a notice to Raut asking him to apologise for his statements. However, he refused to apologise saying he will look into what was wrong in his statements. “If there has been any kind of miss on our part, we will think about it. But I will have to look into it. What I have said so far is based on the information I have, Sushant’s family is speaking on the basis of information they have,” he said.
