Actor Sooraj Pancholi has submitted a complaint to Mumbai Police over him being linked to the case of death of fellow actor Sushant Singh Rajput, an official said on Tuesday.
In his complaint submitted at Versova police station on Monday night, Pancholi said he is being defamed on various social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by being linked to Rajput’s death, he said.
“We have received an application from Sooraj Pancholi and an enquiry is on,” Versova police station’s senior inspector Raghvendra Thakur said.
So far, no offence has been registered (in connection with Pancholi’s complaint), the official said.
There were recently some social media messages, screenshots and derogatory content allegedly linking Pancholi to the death of Rajput and the latter’s former manager Disha Salian. Pancholi’s mother Zarina Wahad earlier denied rumours linking her son with Rajput’s death.
