Television host and actor Shekhar Suman has gone back on his decision to take a backseat in the movement demanding a CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) probe into the death of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. After initially saying that he was backing off as the silence of Sushant’s family made him ‘uncomfortable’, Shekhar said that he has reconsidered and could not ‘let down the emotions of so many people’.
On Thursday, Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty urged the home ministry to transfer the case to the CBI. Shekhar applauded her for this and said, “Finally Rhea has also come forward.Finally..slowly but surely ppl are showing up.it’s a gud sign.” He added that he was convinced that it was a ‘homicide not suicide’ and would continue to fight for justice.

On Wednesday, Shekhar had tweeted that Sushant’s family was ‘completely silent’ on a CBI probe, and he wished to back off as it was their prerogative. “But i will be there behind all of you as a silent force.you have to just summon me and i will be there.i will be the happiest wen Sushant gets justice,” he added.
Sushant died by suicide on June 14. Shekhar, who started the ‘Justice for Sushant Forum’ travelled to Patna last month and met the late actor’s family. Since then, he has been trying to reach out to politicians to amplify the demand for a CBI inquiry into the death. The case is currently being handled by the Mumbai Police.
