Bihar courtroom, on Wednesday, dismissed a petition seeking registration of cases against Bollywood bigwigs like Salman Khan, Ekta Kapoor, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar for allegedly abetting actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide, citing jurisdictional limitations.
Chief Judicial Magistrate of Muzaffarpur, Mukesh Kumar, dismissed the petition filed by native advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha, mentioning that the matter lay exterior the courtroom’s jurisdiction.
In the petition, filed barely three days after the 34-year-old actor was found hanging from the ceiling of his Mumbai residence on June 14, Ojha had also named, amongst ‘witnesses’, Kangana Ranaut who got here out with a few offended messages blaming nepotism and favouritism within the movie industry for the tragedy.
A serial litigant, who has in the recent past come up with petitions against some top movie and political personalities and even overseas heads of states, few of which went past the admission stage, Ojha remained unfazed by the CJM’s order.
“I will challenge the CMJ’s decision before the district court. Bihar is in pain over the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. We must act to bring those, who drove a jovial young man like him to take such an extreme step, to justice,” he instructed reporters.
Quite a few film personalities, especially those from Bihar, have expressed apprehensions about foul play within the Patna-born actor’s dying and sought a CBI inquiry.
These include singer-turned-politician and BJP MP, Manoj Tiwari, amongst others.
