Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans, friends, and family have been intent on getting ‘justice’ for their beloved star. The ‘SSRians’ have not lost even a bit of steam in their relentless pursuit for the truth, that had started with the ‘Justice for Sushant’ initiative four months ago. After leading numerous initiatives, their latest tribute-protest gesture was rallies or 'Padyatras' in different cities, one of which was witnessed in Kolkata on Saturday.

Kolkata roars for Sushant Singh Rajput

After a grand event in Patna, Sushant’s hometown, on the completion of four months of his death on October 14, and another event held in Varanasi, the ‘Padyatra’ was set up for a grand conclusion in Kolkata. One of the attendees of the event was Smita Parikh, who is Sushant’s family friend. She got emotional looking at the scenes at the event and wrote that her ‘heart melted’ with the manner the ‘Bengal tigers and tigresses’ roared for justice. 

Wearing a T-shirt with a photo of SSR, she was seen seated on the street, around photos and banner seeking ‘justice for Sushant’. Smita was also seen addressing the crowd that ensured that the event was a success.

Smita had been one of the persons related to Sushant, whose statement was recorded by the Central Bureau of Investigation in the investigation of the case. She has not minced any words to allege foul play in the death of Sushant.

Another friend of Sushant who was present during the event in Kolkata was Ganesh Hiwarkar. The choreographer, who had taken a similar protest in Delhi’s Jantar Mantar, and also performed hunger-strike, kicked off the proceedings by performing rituals at the Kali Ghat near Kali Temple on Saturday.

SSR case update

Meanwhile, Sushant’s family has also written to the Central Bureau of Investigation, seeking a fresh forensic to probe the death, after the controversial U-turn of DR Sudhir Gupta. The doctor, who heads the panel of AIIMS Hospital that submitted the forensic report to the CBI,  came under flak for allegedly ruling out suicide, after initially claiming that it was ‘forensically unsuitable’ for examination. The CBI also clarified that the investigation was not done, amid recent ‘speculative reports’ claiming that they had arrived at a conclusion.
