Clearing the air on reports of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father sending him Whatsapp messages on February 25 about threat to his son’s life, Mumbai Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Paramjit S Dahiya on Wednesday said he did not receive any written complaint in the matter.
“I told Sushant’s father clearly that he should give a written complaint. He wanted a person named Miranda to be kept in police custody. We never received any written complaint,” Mr Dahiya said when asked about the actor’s father KK Singh sending him Whatsapp message on February 25.
Recently, KK Singh in a video message claimed that he had alerted the Bandra Police on February 25 about the dangers to his son’s life and alleged that the police did not do anything.
Mr Singh had also released screenshots of the Whatsapp conversation between the family members and Mr Dahiya on the matter.
