Mumbai: After a complaint by the father of Disha Sailan, the former manager of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Mumbai Police has starting inquiry into the spread of rumours related to her death.
According to reports, Disha’s father, Satish Sailan, filed a complaint in Malvani police station stating that ‘derogatory’ posts and forwards were being circulated by people to defame his daughter and their family.
