Actor Salman Khan along with seven other celebrities including Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aditya Chopra, and Ekta Kapoor have been asked to appear before the Muzaffarpur District Court on October 7 in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The court ordered the stars to appear on the basis of the complaint filed by Muzaffarpur lawyer Sudhir Ojha.
The lawyer had filed a complaint under sections 306, 504, and 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the celebrities holding them responsible for the actor’s death. Sushant was found hanging to the ceiling fan of his apartment in Mumbai on June 14. Three federal agencies – Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are probing the case from different angles. A section of SSR’s fans on social media believes that the prevalent nepotism, favouritism, and groupism in the film industry are responsible for his death.
In its preliminary investigation, even Mumbai Police called up a few prominent names from the film industry to question them in the case. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Karan Johar’s manager, Mukesh Chhabra, publicist Rohini Iyer, YRF’s Shanoo Sharma, and many others recorded their statements with the Mumbai Police in June and early July.
While the CBI and ED are still conducting the investigation, the NCB has arrested Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty and a few others in the drugs cartel case related to the death case. The anti-narcotics agency has arrested Rhea and Showik under Section 27A of the NDPS act (financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders).

Uttarakhand Power Plant Damaged After The Glacier Burst
Uttarakhand: A glacial burst in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand triggered an avalanche and massive flooding of the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers on Sunday morning, forcing the emergency evacuation of thousands from surrounding areas, and damaging houses and the nearby Rishiganga power project.
Disaster response and management teams have been deployed to conduct search-and-rescue and relief operations. Around 100 to 150 people may have been killed, Uttarakhand Chief Secretary Om Prakash told news agency ANI. Authorities fear hundreds more may still be stuck. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Assam to campaign for Assembly polls, tweeted: “India stands with Uttarakhand and the nation prays for everyone’s safety.”
Disaster management teams have been mobilized and hundreds of ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) have been rushed for rescue operations.
SN Pradhan, chief of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), said that teams from the relief force have been moved for search-and-rescue and relief operations in Uttarakhand where a glacial burst has triggered an avalanche. “The glacial burst has taken out a bridge constructed by the Border Road Organisation. Also in the higher reaches, the Rishiganga hydel project also has been damaged,” he said.
