Sushant Singh Rajput death case: Former Maharashtra cops move Bombay HC seeking stay in 'media trial'

Mumbai/IBNS: Eight former police officers of Maharashtra have moved the Bombay High Court seeking a stay in the alleged media trial in the death case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, media reports said.

The death case is being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the federal probe agency of India.

The eight police officers include the ex-Director General of Police (DGP) of Maharashtra and former commissioners of Mumbai Police.

The Public Interest Litigation (PIL) stated as quoted by The Indian Express, "A section of TV Channels has been trying to influence the course of investigation being done by Central Agencies through their biased reporting and false propaganda.

"This has created an air of suspicion in the minds of the general public as to the facts of the case under investigation and also about the Mumbai Police, health services and other support services of the state."

Sushant was found dead at his own flat in Mumbai's Bandra on Jun 14.

Though the Mumbai Police were probing into the death case, Sushant's father KK Singh had filed a First Information Report (FIR) with the Bihar Police alleging that his late son's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty had siphoned Rs. 15 crore from the actor.
