Post Sushant Singh Rajput's demise, a petition seeking registration of cases against Bollywood celebrities like Salman Khan, Ekta Kapoor, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar for allegedly abetting the actor's suicide, was filed in a court in Bihar.
As per a report in PTI, the court has now dismissed this petition citing jurisdictional limitations. Scroll down to read the details.
Here's Why The Plea Was Dismissed
Chief Judicial Magistrate of Muzaffarpur, Mukesh Kumar dismissed the petition filed by local advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha, by pointing out that the matter lay outside the court's jurisdiction.
Ojha Had Named Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut Among Witnesses
In the petition filed barely three days after Sushant's death, Ojha had also named among "witnesses", actress Kangana Ranaut who came out with a couple of angry messages blaming nepotism and favouritism in the film industry for the tragedy.
However, Ojha Remains Unfazed By The CJM's Order And Plans To Challenge His Order
He told media reporters, "I will challenge the CJMs decision before the district court. Bihar is in pain over the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. We must act to bring those, who drove a jovial young man like him to take such an extreme step, to justice."
