(Trigger warning: mentions of suicide)
The Mumbai Police have registered a case against actor Sahil Khan and three others for allegedly instigating actor Manoj Patil to attempt suicide. Manoj Patil was hospitalised on Thursday, after he allegedly attempted suicide.
Patil’s manager had said that the former Mr. India winner had written a letter to the Oshiwara Police alleging that actor Sahil Khan was defaming Patil on social media. In the letter, he also reportedly sought an FIR against the actor for the same.
Manoj Patil’s mother had told India Today, “Manoj Patil’s mother told the publication, “My son told me that he was being mentally harassed by Sahil Khan. It came to a state where he said ‘I feel like ending my life’ and he tried to take his life.”
After the incident, Sahil Khan held a press conference and alleged that the matter involved Manoj Patil and a Raj Faujdar. He told ETimes that he met Faujdar on social media who accused Patil of selling him expired steroids for Rs. 2 lakhs, which resulted in health issues.
"Faujdar has all the necessary bills and receipts of financial transactions. He wanted social media support, so I posted his video on my social media platforms asking people to support Faujdar," Khan added.
