The late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s family was over joyed to hear of the Supreme court’s decision for a CBI probe in the death case. Not late enough after the decision was announced, the actor’s father KK Singh issued a statement declaring himself as the legal heir of the actor and that no one else except him is entitled to represent the actor.
In his statement, actor’s father KK Singh said, “It is hereby declared that I am the legal heir of late Sushant Singh Rajput and in that capacity, any arrangement that Sushant had during his lifetime for the engagement of any lawyer, Chartered Accountant and other professional came to an end upon the death of Sushant and thereafter no lawyer, Chartered Accountant or other person is entitled to represent the estate of Sushant without my express consent.”
KK Singh barred the people too who have expressed about their alleged conversations with his son , “They have talked on media about the alleged privileged communication between Sushant and them. Clearly such disclosure is barred by section 126 of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872 and the Bar Council of India Rules [Rule 17, Part VI, Chapter 1ft, without my consent as I am representing the estate of Sushant. I have not given any consent to anyone of them to either continue to represent Sushant or disclose any communication barred by section 126 of Evidence Act, 1872.”
KK Singh mentioned about him and his daughters being the only family of the late actor. “It is also made clear that only I and my daughters comprise the family of Sushant and we have authorized Varun Singh (SKV Law Offices, Commercial) as our Advocate and through him Vikas Singh, Sr. Advocate, to represent the family. Any other person claiming himself to be family member does not have my consent.” he said.
