Mumbai: 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 here on Monday, August 10 night, Pancholi said that he is being defamed on various social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, by being linked to Rajput’s death.

“We have received an application from Sooraj Pancholi and an inquiry is on,” Versova police station’s senior inspector Raghvendra Thakur said.

“So far, no offense 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 rumors linking her son with Rajput’s death.
Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14.

Salian, 28, allegedly committed suicide by jumping from a high-rise building in Malad area here on June 8, according to police.

The Mumbai Police have so far recorded statements of more than 50 people, including Rajput’s sisters, his friend, and actress Rhea Chakraborty, and some other film personalities in connection with his death.

Rajput’s father KK Singh on July 25 lodged a complaint with Patna police against Chakraborty and her family members, accusing them of abetting the actor’s suicide. The CBI last week re-registered this FIR as a fresh case and named as accused the same people.

Singh also alleged financial irregularities in bank accounts of his son.

The Enforcement Directorate has questioned Chakraborty, Rajput’s friend and roommate Siddharth Pithani, the late actor’s business manager Shruti Modi and some other persons in connection with a money laundering case linked to his death.
