Vikas Singh, the lawyer who is representing Sushant Singh Rajput’s father in his case against Rhea Chakraborty, has said that the family is disappointed as the death investigation is being sidetracked. Vikas Singh said Sushant’s death has transformed into an investigation into an alleged drugs subculture in the film industry.
"The family feels that the investigation is going in such a way that the truth is not coming out. The NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) case has become like the Mumbai Police investigation, all stars are now being called. The people called in and not are a part of a syndicate and not distributors. It is just a Mumbai Police type of investigation. Sushant's case has taken a back seat," the lawyer said in a press conference, which held on Thursday.
"The family feels that the probe is being taken in a different direction. All attention is being diverted towards the drugs case. AIIMS doctor told me that Sushant's death was by strangulation," he added.
Vikas Singh said that he is not happy with CBI. "Why is CBI converting this to murder from abetment? The investigation is not on track. I will not say I am not happy with CBI, but it's the lack of importance that the case is getting is what I am worried about. The forensics response of the AIIMS should be made public that is what will satisfy the family," he said.
"Today, we are helpless as we don't know in which direction the case is going. Till today, CBI has not done a press briefing on what they have found out. I am not happy with the speed at which the case is going," he added.
Rhea Chakraborty is in judicial custody that has been extended till October 6.
