Actress Renuka Shahane has called out Amruta Fadnavis, wife of former Maharashtra Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, on politicising death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
“This is really unfair to a city that feeds and homes millions. However tattered the roof or blanket, Mumbai gives residents a reason to hope, dream & smile even without Z security. @MumbaiPolice have been working tirelessly to keep us safe even during covid,” Renuka tweeted on Tuesday in response to a tweet posted by Amruta.
“Please don’t politicize Sushant’s tragic death and use it to badmouth Mumbai and it’s people @fadnavis_amruta. Instead you have all the power to help the police in their investigation by providing them with any details that you might be sure of,” the actress wrote in the second part of her post.
Amruta made a statement on twitter, she wrote, “The manner in which #SushantSinghRajputDeathCase is being handled – I feel #Mumbai has lost humanity & is no more safe to live – for innocent, self respecting citizens #JusticeforSushantSingRajput #JusticeForDishaSalian.”
As always, Amruta Fadnavis was heavily trolled on social media for her statement about Mumbai Police and the city.
Renuka Shahane added that if she were the CM's wife she wouldn't make such a statement about Mumbai, whatever the circumstances. "Remember Elphinstone bridge collapsing during Devendra Fadnavis tenure? Many Mumbaikars died but she did not say anything about Mumbai not being safe or being heartless!."
In another tweet, the actor said that the investigation has to be conducted without pressure, either from media,politicians or whoever. If it was suicide & there was abetment we must bring the perpetrators to justice. "If it was a murder, the murderers must be caught. But this Bihar v/s Mumbai nonsense isn't helping”.
Sushant Singh Rajput death case is making headlines on every other day since he was found hanging in his apartment on June 14. The post mortem report stated that the actor committed suicide. Mumbai Police has been investigating the case. Following an FIR lodged by Sushant’s father KK Singh in Patna on July 25, Bihar Police have also started a probe.
