KK Singh, the father of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput in his statement to the Mumbai Police has stated that he "feels that Sushant might have done suicide out of dejection". The late actor’s father, who lives in Bihar along with his family, had lodged a police complaint in Patna, accusing his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her family members of abetment to suicide.
As maintained by a NDTV report, the late actor’s father said to Mumbai Police, “I am not aware as to why my son Sushant has committed suicide. He never discussed with me regarding any type of depression or tension. I do not have any suspicion of or any complaint against Sushant. I feel that Sushant might have done suicide out of dejection. My statement was written in Marathi and explained to me in Hindi and it is correct as I told.”
“I used to message Sushant on WhatsApp and he used to reply,” he saiid.
Vikas Singh,who is a legal representative of Sushant’s father held a press conference on Wednesday where he told their side of the story concerning the claims made by Rhea in her recent interview, “The family has never given any statement of Sushant dying by suicide. These statements were recorded by the Mumbai Police in Marathi. The family also objected, ‘Please don’t write in Marathi if you want us to sign.’ They were forced to sign a statement written in Marathi. They had no clue of what was being written,” he said.
Furthermore, the lawyer said that “We have not been supplied that statement. We don’t know what was recorded by the Mumbai Police, we know what we said”.
According to a report in India Today, Mumbai Police said during a press conference that the statements of Sushant’s three sisters and father were taken in presence of the late actor’s brother-in-law and Faridabad Police Commissioner OP Singh.
The report has also cited Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde as saying,“The statements were made two and a half months back before the police on June 16, 2020. Those statements were explained to the sisters and till today there have been no complaints. Now it is too late in the day to say ‘I did not understand the content of those statements.’ Investigation in every state takes place according to state language.”
