Shivsena Leader Aditya Thackeray has opened up about alleged involvement in Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case and dismissed all reports stating that “This is all dirty politics.”
The son of the Maharashtra Chief Minister issued a statement on Tuesday evening, rubbishing various unconfirmed reports linking him to the late Bollywood actor and His ex Manager Disha Salian. In his statement, Aditya took a jibe at the opposition, claiming that this was coming out of “political despair” as some couldn’t digest the success of the ruling State Government in efforts in bringing the COVID-19 pandemic under control.
He tweeted his statement on his official twitter handle in Marathi Language. Here is the complete Text in English :
The entire nation is fighting against the coronavirus. And there are many who are jealous of the good work that the Maharashtra government has done with respect to tackling Covid-19. Now some of these have busied themselves with playing dirty politics. My family and particularly my name is being dragged through the mud in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. I have no connection whatsoever with this case.
It is true that I have friends in Bollywood and I get along well with many from the industry. That is not a crime. Sushant Singh Rajput’s death is as shocking as it is tragic. Mumbai police is entrusted with the investigation into the case. Mumbai police is globally recognised as a professional force. But those who are not interested in justice are resorting to all kinds of smokescreens to divert attention and misguide the investigation.
As the grandson of Hindu Hriday Samrat Balasaheb Thackeray, I would like to say that I will never do anything that will sully the family name. Those throwing baseless accusations should understand that.
If anyone has anything to add to the investigations in the case, they should take the information to the Mumbai police. The police will investigate it. Don’t be under any false pretenses that you can defame me and my family by resorting to such attempts at mudslinging.
