Actor Dino Morea has denied that he had hosted a party at his residence on the night of June 13, where late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was present along with several high-profile guests.
“There was never any such gathering at my residence, pls get your facts right before making these allegations. DO NOT drag my name into this as I have no connection whatsoever with this,” Dino wrote on his official Twitter handle.
The actor’s tweet came in reaction to former Maharashtra chief minister Narayan Rane telling the media that Dino had played host to Sushant and a “politician” at a party which he organised at his residence on June 13, the day before Sushant’s death.
With his clarification tweet, Dino attached a news channel clip of Rane at the briefing. In the clip, it has been mentioned that after starting off at Dino’s place, the party had moved to Sushant’s apartment in Bandra.
Sushant was found hanging at his apartment in Bandra on June 14. Post mortem report had claimed that the actor committed suicide. Investigation into the case is still on, with Mumbai Police and Bihar Police probing the case.
On Monday, the Mumbai police said the actor was under treatment for bipolar disorder and was taking medication.
The Mumbai Police chief also confirmed that in his last few days, Sushant Singh had googled "painless death" and Disha Salian - his former manager who died after a fall from a high-rise on June 8. Hours before he was found dead, the actor had also googled his name.
The top police official said Mumbai Police have recorded the statements of 56 people in the course of their probe into the case and that all angles are being investigated be it “professional rivalry, financial transactions or his health”.
