Guwahati: Sushant Singh Rajput's former manager Disha Salian's father, Satish Salian, has addressed a letter to Mumbai Police alleging harassment and atrocity by the media on his family.
He has also written the news about his daughter's involvement with any politician or attending parties with big names of the film industry, rape and murder are all 'stories cooked by these media'. The deceased's father requested the police to 'take reasonable action' against the concerned journalists.
The letter that was addressed to ACP Dilip Yadav of Malwani Division, complained about "mental harassment and consequent victimization of my family and deceased daughter Disha Salian by journalists and media people".
The letter adds: "Sir, I am writing this to you as my family has been continuously harassed by journalists and media people in relation to the death of my daughter Disha Salian. In light of the above unfortunate incident and circumstances, I had already submitted a written complaint in Malvani Police Station & ACP's office vide letter dated: 13/07/2020 against derogatory posts and forwards being shared by the listed people in the said letter, leading to defamation of my deceased daughter and my family."
"The media people come unannounced at my house hiding their original brand in the name of interviews regarding the death of my daughter. They are providing the media with misleading news which is not only creating hindrance to the actual inquiry being conducted, but it's also taking a toll on my family", he further added.
"News about her involvement with any politician or attending parties with big names of film fraternity, rape, murder are all the stories cooked by these media people just to sell it to channels. These stories hold no truth. These are misleading the people and tarnishing my daughter's reputation and my family's reputation. These fake news are taking a huge toll on my family's health and we are being victimized by the media. We are completely satisfied with the investigations being conducted by the Mumbai Police and have faith in them."
The letter wrote by late manager Disha's father comes a day after former Maharashtra Chief Minister and present BJP Rajya Sabha member Narayan Rane alleged that both Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput and his former manager Disha Salian were murdered.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Police have been investigating Disha Salian's death. Following the investigation, Malad's Malvani police station issued a press note seeking more information and evidence on the late celebrity manager on Wednesday.
