Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14, 2020, sent a shockwave across the nation. The actor died by suicide and was found dead at his apartment in Bandra, Mumbai. The Mumbai Police is investigating his death, and several people linked to the actor have also been summoned to record their statements. Sushant’s suicide fuelled outrage and a social media trial with people furious about issues that they thought might have led to this. His fans as well as some famous personalities such as Shekhar Suman, Roopa Ganguly have been demanding the government to initiate a CBI inquiry, and a few days ago also held a peaceful protest posting pictures lighting candles or diya.
Sushant Singh Rajput had once ironically aired his views on social media trials and how it was an important tool that can pressurize agencies to take immediate action. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Sushant was asked about social media trials and he replied that it was an important weapon. He said how important it was as a social media trial can put pressure on agencies to take immediate action. However, he also added that if one wasn't at fault, it's a bad thing as they won't get time to defend themselves.
“If somebody has actually made a mistake, this is a very important tool to punish like immediately and it can put pressure on agencies to take immediate actions. In that way, it’s a good thing, and if somebody isn’t at fault, it’s a very bad thing because he’s not even getting time to defend," said Sushant.
