I don’t even know Disha. I never met her in my life. I only knew about her after her death, and then later Sushant’s death, that too through social media. I’d never interacted, don’t know what she even looked like.”
Just a few days after her death, on 14 June 2020, Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging from his room’s ceiling fan. Initially, it was said that Sushant committed suicide, but after Sushant’s father filed a complaint against Rhea Chakraborty, the investigation took a different phase. During the investigation of Sushant’s case, various media sources talked about Disha Salian’s suicide and claimed that Disha’a suicide case was related to Sushant’s case. In September 2020, Disha’s death case was reopened and CBI started investigation in her case; to know whether it was suicide or murder and to find out the connection between Disha and Sushant’s death case.

It’s such a devastating news. My deepest condolences to Disha’s family and friends. May your soul rest in peace.”
Varun Sharma uploaded a photo of Disha and wrote,
Am at a loss of words. Speechless. Numb. It all looks unreal. So many memories. Such a lovely person and a dear friend. You always wore that smile everyday, and with such kindness you dealt with everything that came your way. You will be deeply missed. Prayers and Strength to the Family. I still can’t believe Disha you’re gone. Gone too Soon (sic).”
- Her fiance, Rohan Rai, spoke about the tragic night when Disha allegedly committed suicide almost two years after her death in November 2022. Additionally, he talked about her rumoured pregnancy and relationship with Sushant Singh Rajput. Rohan said that Disha ‘mixed’ her drinks that night, and everything happened so quickly that they had no idea what was happening. He said,
We were joined by 4 of our friends and for 2-3 days, we were drinking. Disha had mixed her drinks which she shouldn’t have, because that used to have bad effect on her. Her last call was to her school friend in London. Everything happened within five minutes. I took the phone from Disha to talk to her friend, while she went to the master bedroom. A few minutes later, I knocked on the door, but there was no answer. Since the door wasn’t locked, I opened it and saw some alcohol spilled over the bed. I assumed that she was changing her clothes in the bathroom and went back. A few minutes later, a friend and I knocked again. On getting no answer, I rushed into the bathroom but she wasn’t there. We searched the entire flat and started getting worried. We once again went inside the master bedroom and started checking the wardrobes as well. By this time, all of us were in a state of panic. That’s when I noticed that the window in the master bedroom was open. When I looked down from there, I first recognised her pyjamas on the ground. I was zapped and asked my friend, ‘ Kya hai yeh?’ I went into denial and started slapping myself. It felt like a bad dream. Then I stood on the parapet thinking that I would also jump. My friends pulled me back. Soon, the police also arrived. They asked me to remove my clothes to examine my body for any fight marks and also searched the house. Some of our friends rushed Disha to the hospital. The first two hospitals denied entry, and the third one that agreed to admit her declared her dead on arrival.” The Times of India
It wasn’t any accident or suicide, it was a planned murder by Suraj Pancholi with whom she was pregnant!
Proofs of the same are available on YouTube!

How is it posible?
Mafias white collar gang has reached all over media to portray murder into suicide+depression theory. This is COLD BLOODED MURDER. So far, these culprits have cheated us and tried portraying murder into suicide with depression theory. How come someone can get slip and fell down from building? Her family and friends all mentioned there was no depression however some politician, builder and Bollywood actors are involved in Disha’s murder and Maharashtra government of India is hiding it. Mumbai police is protecting murderers. How can this possible that you share just information blindly?? People are not fool. People are awakened now!! Mafia’s suicide+depression theory is over.
