The Sushant Singh Rajput saga might have died down in terms of daily updates in one way or the other but we have witnessed another occurence lately of how several people who were attached to this investigation have come forward to take their action.
Recently we have seen how actor Rhea Chakraborty, who even spent a large amount of time in custody has decided to sue for the media trials that defamed her followed by producer Ssandip Singh taking his steps to file a case.
And now, latest reports suggest that house help Dipesh Sawant, who continued to be the go-to person of sorts for Rajput's last updates before death has also decided to sue.
According to a report in India Today, Sawant has filed a complaint before the Bombay High Court against NCB on October 5. He has alleged in his petition that he was produced before the magistrate court after 36 hours of his arrest. He claims that he was arrested on September 4 and not on September 5 as per NCB records. He was produced in front of magistrate court on September 6. As per the rule, NCB is supposed to produce the accused in front of magistrate court within 24 hours of the arrest. In the petition. Sawant had claimed that the NCB broke the law and hence, have demanded Rs 10 lakh in compensation.
The case has been reportedly adjourned till November 6. The division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice MS Karnik will hear the case. As per the report, Advocates Rajendra Rathod and Aamir Koradia filed a petition on behalf of Dipesh Sawant. Mr Rathod was quoted saying, “Two hearings have happened in the court. NCB has asked for more time to reply."
Sawant was arrested along with a few others on charges of procuring drugs for Rajput.
