Ishkaran Singh Bhandari, who heads “a people’s campaign” for justice, said that the death of Sushant Singh Rajput would be viewed as one of “mysterious demise” until CBI ascertains the facts.

A Delhi-based lawyer asked for a review of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by the Central Investigation Bureau (CBI) into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput citing many police lapses as he pushed for the need to rebuild people’s trust in the justice system.

Ishkaran Singh Bhandari, who heads “a people’s campaign” for justice, said that the death of Sushant Singh Rajput would be viewed as one of “mysterious demise” until CBI ascertains the facts.

On 14 June, the 34-year-old actor was found dead in his Mumbai apartment. Police also said that he died from suicide.

Many voices have called for a CBI investigation into his murder, including Rajput’s close friend Rhea Chakraborty. Even among those who have called for a CBI probe is Actor Shekhar Suman and Bharatiya Janata parliamentarian Subramanian Swamy.

In the situation, however, home minister Anil Deshmukh of Maharashtra has ruled out demands for a CBI investigation. Deshmukh has said Mumbai Police were able to tackle the situation.

Bhandari said the term “suicide came in minutes after his death and it was a dominant theme on the media as a whole.”

“The usual thing is to call it a mysterious death, investigate it, and after investigating it you may come to a conclusion that it’s a tragedy, it’s suicide abetment, or it’s a foul murder,” he stated.

“So how, in a few minutes, could you come to that conclusion? And that means you’ve got a decided outcome. That was everything that led off to me. The more I went into it after that the questions kept piling up, “he said.

As behalf of the police and other aspects the lawyer cited “lapses” that Rajput supposedly modified 50 SIM cards as his phone. He said he has written about these aspects to the Mumbai Police, which is investigating the death of the actor.

“I said in the first letter that source-based, not just source-based, name-based information exists that Sushant Singh Rajput changed the SIM cards 50 times over. I wrote to them asking if they had blocked all those SIM cards, the electronic proof of any of them, as well as the incidental and linked people’s electronic evidence. That is important,’ he added.

“That’s an incredibly large number and that’s why I wrote that it was important to seal this proof. If it is investigated by Mumbai Police, ideally, they ‘d already done it. When they did not, so it raises more and more questions, “he added.

He also said he asked them if they had sealed the flat and conducted forensic investigation citing “reports in reliable mainstream media” that after a day of Rajput ‘s death they were doing so.

“That’s very shocking and a very eye-catching lapse of a protocol because we all know it can contaminate facts. In fact, they say that only the family pets shouldn’t be in the room when an incident happens and only a pet will contaminate a scene, and leave people alone. Therefore, why was this important thing not done and I wrote a letter to them saying this justice is for the public confidence at the end of the day.

Bhandari pointed out that no one came forward to say police were following protocols.

“Such announcements are not coming, because the decisions of this country’s highest courts, which is the Supreme Court, suggest the public interest is an important part of the judicial system and even where powerful persons are concerned,” he said.

Police said they collected the statements of hundreds of individuals, including his relatives, colleagues, co-stars and nearby helpers, in the inquiries ordered on June 14 by the Maharashtra government on the death of the actor.

He has said investigators had taken days to record “prominent individuals” statements in connection with the case.

“And, by definition, someone being asked is an important person, is by definition a individual with means and sources, is by definition a person connected to both administrations. Therefore, to prevent any conflicts of interest, it needs to abandon the local police and it has to go out to a central agency, “he figured out.

“It will go to CBI, though. There are lapses in this situation too. Even without lapses, I ‘m suggesting this was a situation that should have gone to CBI.

If they don’t, one will decide to go to court, and because people, in this case, deserve fairness, then they must have the assurance that justice and transparency are being served.”
