Sushant Singh Rajput's death case was initially handled by the Mumbai Police. A lot of people including big filmmakers like Mahesh Bhatt, Aditya Chopra and others were summoned to record their statements. Even the Kai Po Che actor's family members' statements were recorded. However, now, Sushant Singh Rajput's family lawyer Vikas Singh has stated that the late actor's family was forced to sign on the statements written in Marathi, a language that they do not understand.
During a press conference, Vikas Singh was quoted saying, "The family has never given any statement of Sushant dying by suicide. These statements were recorded by the Mumbai Police in Marathi. The family also objected, ‘Please don’t write in Marathi if you want us to sign.’ They were forced to sign a statement written in Marathi. They had no clue of what was being written," as reported by Hindustan Times.
Further, he went on to reveal that the statement was not read out to Sushant Singh Rajput's family, neither a copy was provided. He added, "It was just written in Marathi, that’s it. There was nothing read out to anybody. Even if you read out in Marathi… If I write something in a language you don’t know and I then read out whatever I want you to hear… If I don’t know Marathi, how will I check if what you are telling me is what is written. It’s simple logic!"
