He said that Sandip might have seen that SSR’s sister Meetu Singh was all devastated and that gave him ‘the opportunity’ to oversee everything. “Meetu (Sushant’s sister) was devastated after seeing Sushant’s body so she went and she was lying down in the room so he just saw an opportunity and he took charge. Nobody in the family knows him, how did he come there. Suddenly how did he start taking charge.” Also Read - Pictures: CBI Team at Terrace of Sushant Singh Rajput's Residence, Crime Scene Recreated With Siddharth Pithani And Cook
He added that it should have been Siddharth Pithani taking charge of everything until the family arrived but he was nowhere to be seen. “Since nobody from the family was there, there was an opening for him. I guess it should have been Pithani who should have been there and not Sandip,” said the lawyer.
