Disha Salian Case: Investigating Officer Says 'case Passed On'; Security Guard Stung

Police inspector Vinod Kanavje was also stung by Republic TV and he was heard saying on tape that he is no longer the investigating officer on Disha's case

The link between the deaths of Sushant Singh Rajput and Disha Salian has been a constant talking point since June 14 with many politicians, celebrities, and lawyers raising questions. While Mumbai Police that probed both the cases have remained mum on the alleged connection, sources claim that the former has changed the entire team probing Disha Salian's case.

Amid reports of the CBI investigating Disha’s death, the security personnel at Disha Salian's building in a sting operation by Republic TV claimed that the Mumbai Police is looking at the case in a different style and new people are seen investigating the case. Moreover, Police inspector Vinod Kanavje was also stung by Republic TV and he was heard saying on tape that he is no longer the investigating officer on Disha Salian's case.


When asked about investigating Disha Salian's case, Vinod Kanavje said, "I was, earlier, but I am not now. It has been passed on to Rajane Sir."


The guard at Disha Salian's building on tape was heard saying that a new team is probing the case for the last 2-3 days. He claimed, "They took whatever they needed earlier. Earlier they took the statements in the building itself. They did not take the security guard with them. Now, with everything that has been going on in the media, they are taking the guard along and asking who stays in which flat, checking housekeeping person."
