In the days following Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, a lot has been said and circulated on social media. While there was outrage on social media, a section of Netizens also suspected foul play and demanded a CBI inquiry. It first started with Bollywood biggies facing the heat on social media, and later turned political. There have been a lot of voices demanding a CBI enquiry including Sushant's family with his father releasing a video statement just yesterday. There were also various unconfirmed reports linking Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray. Now, Maharashtra CM's son Aaditya broke his silence, rubbishing unconfirmed reports in Sushant’s death case.
Aaditya Thackeray shared a statement in Marathi on his Twitter handle, the caption of which read, “This is dirty politics.” Aaditya Thackeray wrote "The COVID-19 crisis has caused havoc all over the country. The Maharashtra government is also striving hard for defeating COVID-19. Probably, the people who are jealous of Maharashtra government’s success and popularity have started playing dirty politics on the Sushant Singh Rajput case. There has been mudslinging against me and the Thackeray family regarding the suicide of Sushant. In a way, this showcases the political jealousy arising out of failure. This attempt to exploit a dead person is a blot on humanity.
He further stated, "Basically, I have no connection to this matter whatsoever. Bollywood is an important component of Mumbai. Thousands of livelihoods are dependent on this industry. I have a close bond with many of them. This is not a crime. The death of Sushant Singh Rajput is not just unfortunate but also shocking. Mumbai Police is conducting a detailed probe into this case and the Maharashtra Police is well-renowned. But the people who have no faith in the law are trying to obfuscate the probe by giving wind to useless allegations."
He concluded, "As the grandson of Hindu Hriday Samrat Balasaheb Thackeray, I want to stress that I will never commit any act that causes a dent to the prestige of Maharashtra, Shiv Sena, and the Thackeray family. People who are making false allegations should understand this. If someone has special information regarding this, the person should give it to the police. The police will definitely probe this angle. I am maintaining restraint regarding this matter. No one should be under the false impression that they will be able to malign the government and Thackeray family by such mudslinging."
