Though the actor’s death was initially thought to be a suicide, the case soon took a darker turn with many hinting at murky conspiracies and concluding that it was, after all, a murder, especially after Sushant’s father filed an FIR in Patna accusing Rhea Chakraborty of abetment to suicide.
Since then, allegations and counter-allegations have been levied by both Sushant’s family and his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty. Well, whether it was a suicide or a murder, his death nonetheless has turned into a spectacle of sorts with numerous conjectures flying around.
With so many controversies happening around his purported murder, author Taslima Nasreen sarcastically wrote in a tweet, ”What would happen if CBI says Sushant committed suicide?”
The tweet has now gone viral, with several comments pouring in. Some responded positively saying that even it was a suicide, Sushant’s family will finally get the much-needed closure, whereas some others were adamant that it was a murder.
Others alleged that the case is loaded with political motives vis-a-vis the Bihar elections, while some lamented that people would soon forget about this case.
Check out the reactions:
“The actor Sushant Singh Rajput was a talented actor in the Mumbai film world and died well before his full potential could be realised. His family, friends and admirers are keenly awaiting the outcome of the investigation so that all the speculations floating around can be put to rest. Therefore a fair, competent and impartial investigation is the need of the hour. The expected outcome then would be, a measure of justice for the Complainant, who lost his only son’, the SC judgement read.
