Celebrity manager Disha Salian was found dead in May after she committed suicide. Ever since then the media has tried to find out every aspect of Salian’s life and the reasons behind her death. While the intentions are sometimes good and sometimes bad Disha Salian’s father has had enough of both.
In a letter to the Mumbai police, he wrote, “Sir. I am writing this to you as my family has been continuously harassed by the journalists and media people in relation to the death of my daughter, Disha Salian. In light of the above unfortunate incident and circumstances. I had already submitted a written complaint in Malvani Police Station & ACP, office vide letter dated:13/07/2020 against derogatory posts and forwards being shared by the listed people in the said letter leading to defamation of my deceased daughter and my family. In addition to the said letter, I would like to bring to your attention, the atrocities of journalists and media people on my family. The media people come unannounced at my house hiding their original brand in the name of interviews regarding the death of my daughter. They are providing the media with misleading news which are not only creating hindrance to the actual inquiry being conducted but it's also taking a toll on my family.”
“We are being harassed by these people by repeatedly questioning our faith in Mumbai Police and their way of inquiries are conducted. We have already given our statement to the police that we do not suspect anyone with foul play,” he added.
He further wrote, “News about her involvement with any politician or attending parties with big names of film fraternity, rape, murder are all the stories cooked by these media people just to sell it to channels. These stories hold no truth. These are misleading the people and tarnishing my daughter's reputation and my family's reputation. These fake news are taking a huge toll on my family's health and we are being victimized by the media. We are completely satisfied with the investigations being conducted by the Mumbai Police and have faith in them.”
