In 2020 June, a week before Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise, the actor’s former manager Disha Salian died by suicide. Disha, apparently, ended her life by jumping off a building. With each passing day, many angles were given to her death. Right from it being linked to SSR’s death to it being politicized, news around Disha’s death often made headlines for different reasons.
It will soon be two years since Disha took the drastic step and ended her life, but her family continues to seek justice for their daughter.
Now Disha Salian’s family has written to President Ram Nath Kovind to seek justice for their daughter. In a recent update about her death case, Salians have written a letter to the President urging him to take a step against Union Minister Narayan Rane and his son Nitesh Rane.
The Salians, in the letter, informed the President that after their daughter’s death, some people active on social media had started connecting the incident (her alleged suicide) with the death of Rajput and started spreading “imaginary and factually incorrect information” on social media and news channels.
“Some politicians like Narayan Rane and Nitesh Rane jumped on the issue due to their rivalry with Uddhav Thackeray (Maharashtra CM and his son) Aaditya to settle their personal scores, and dragged us into their political battle and have made our life miserable,” Disha’s parents claimed in the letter.
“The Ranes have no proof whatsoever and the facts are in our personal knowledge. We are well aware that they cannot give any proof, as they are liars and they are giving false excuses of giving proof to the CBI and not to the (Mumbai) police,” they said.
The Salians requested the President to issue directions to the authorities concerned to take appropriate steps to ensure that justice is done, otherwise they will be left with no other alternative but to end their lives.
Apart from managing Sushant Singh Rajput, Disha Salian has also worked with other actors like Rhea Chakraborty and Varun Sharma. In 2021, Mumbai Police, who was probing Disha’s death case, had closed it as no evidence of any foul play was found. Cops also denied finding any link that led to the allegations of her death being linked to SSR’s, who passed away on June 14, 2020.
