Sushant manager’s death mystery solved;  CBI says ‘it’s accident’

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has concluded that the death of Mumbai-based talent manager Disha Salian was an accident and not a case of suicide. Disha’s death in 2020 had become a controversial issue following numerous allegations of foul play and cover up.

The 28-year-old had managed several stars in her career, most notably Sushant Singh Rajput, who himself died less than a week after Disha.

Even as there was no separate FIR or complaint into Disha’s death, the matter was investigated by the CBI in connection with Sushant’s death which is also being probed by the CBI.

Disha died on the intervening night of June 8-9, 2020 reportedly after falling off the balcony of a 14th floor apartment in Mumbai’s Malad.

Rajput’s body was found five days later, BJP leader Nitish Rane had alleged that the deaths were linked and there was foul play. Now, a CBI probe has reportedly found that Disha fell after losing balance under the influence of alcohol.

“Since serious allegations were levelled in the Disha matter and claims were made that the two deaths were linked, as Salian had briefly worked for Rajput, her death has been probed in detail. The investigation has revealed that Disha had been organising get-togethers at her residence in the run-up to her birthday. The party on June 8th night was part of it. However, that night, Disha, who had consumed alcohol, lost her balance and slipped from the parapet of her flat,” a news report quoted an unnamed official as saying.

The official reportedly said there was no proof to suggest the two deaths were linked or that Disha’s death triggered Sushant’s suicide.

The report further quoted another CBI official as saying, “The probe hasn’t found any substance in the allegations levelled by Rane that Disha was assaulted and had approached Rajput for help and that there is a larger political conspiracy at play. It was necessary to probe the circumstances owing to the sensitive nature of the case and the nature of allegations.”

The CBI is investigating the death of Sushant, which is being probed from suicide angle. However, no closure report has been filed in the matter so far by the agency.
