KK Singh’s lawyer explains why they were delayed in registering FIR in Sushant Singh Rajput’s case
Lawyer Vikas Singh says the family were previously ‘in shock’
The lawyer of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh has spoken about the delay in filing the case with the Patna Police and whether the family wants a CBI probe.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh’s lawyer, Vikas Singh has confirmed that the family have requested the Patna Police to look into the late actor’s suicide. Vikas, who is the former additional solicitor general added that the family have not ‘demanded a CBI investigation yet’.
In an interview with ANI, Vikas said, “FIR has been registered now as the family was in shock and the Mumbai Police wasn’t registering an FIR, but forcing them to give names of big production houses and get them involved. It (the investigation) was heading in a different direction.”
Going on to say, “Patna Police was a little hesitant to register an FIR but chief minister Nitish Kumar and minister Sanjay Jha explained the matter to them and an FIR was registered. We want that the matter should be investigated by the Patna Police. The family has not demanded a CBI investigation yet.”
“In criminal jurisprudence, an FIR can be registered at a place which has even a part of the cause of action and in a crime of this nature, you have to work on the mind of the victim. You control the mind by first distancing the victim from the family, the distancing from the family started by disconnecting Sushant Singh Rajput from his father and not letting him talk to his father. This is not a crime done in the spur of the moment, the death itself is not the crime. It is the facts leading to death which is a crime, and it includes shutting out the family and that ingredient is very important which happened in Patna,” he further added.
