The law should take its own course...hoping all facts would rise to the front and justice rendered to Shushant. Everyone closely staying with him should be taken as suspects, his friend Sandeep, Rhea, cooks attendants, his PR team. Also unearth who ever were threatening him and should be punished mercilessly.
