Sajid Nadiadwala writes to Home Minister requesting to stop circulation of photos of Sushant Singh Rajput’s mortal remains
In his letter Nadiadwala, who is also the President of Indian Film and Televisions Producers’ Council (IFTPC), said he wished to make a request “with respect to some disturbing photographs being circulated on social media with respect to the death of Late Mr Sushant Singh Rajput.”
The letter further went on to state, “I am also the producer of the films involving Late Mr Sushant Singh Rajput and am sharing my sentiment that few photographs with respect to the death of Mr Sushant Singh Rajput, which are currently being circulated on Social Media are quite disturbing and depressing and are required to be stopped from being circulated.”
“I am making this request to your esteemed office to please issue necessary and urgent directions, if possible, to the concerned authorities including concerned Police department for stopping the circulation of those disturbing photographs with respect to the death of Late Mr Sushant Singh Rajput,” the letter concluded.
The Maharashtra Police’s cyber department issued a warning to people to refrain from circulating pictures of the late actor’s body. Terming it as a “disturbing trend”, the Police on their official handle, warned that sharing such pictures could attract legal action.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s final rites were conducted on Monday evening, in the presence of his family, closest friends and a few former co-stars.
According to police reports, asphyxia due to hanging was stated as the cause of death.
