The Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain a plea for a court-monitored CBI probe into the death of Disha Salian, the manager of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

A Bench led by Chief Justice of India S.A. Bobde asked the petitioner, Puneet Dhanda, to approach the Bombay High Court.

Ms. Salian died on June 8 after falling off the 14th floor of a residential building in Malad in west Mumbai. Six days later, on June 14, 34-year-old Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra home.

“Why don’t you go to the Bombay High Court? They know the case and they will take an informed decision and then you may come here if there is any difficulty,” Chief Justice Bobde addressed the petitioner's side.
