“The petitioner (Shukla) has documentary evidence to prove that Disha Salian and Sushant Singh Rajput were in touch from March to April 2020,” the petition said.
It added that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is already probing the death of Mr Rajput and hence even Disha Salian’s death case should be handed over to the central probe agency.
