The numbers of fake news doing the rounds concerning Sushant Singh Rajput after his death are unaccountable now. People need to be more sensitive and cautious. Earlier, MNS Chief Raj Thackeray had to clarify that the party has not asked the artist facing nepotism to come forward to get help after Sushant's passing. Now, journalists have rubbished the earlier reports that suggested Sushant's father has joined Twitter and has appealed a CBI enquiry into his son's death. Raj Thackeray Rubbishes Reports of MNS Helping Artists Facing Nepotism After Sushant Singh Rajput's Death.
