Another mountain of sadness has descended upon Sushant singh rajputs family as At least 5 members of his extended family were killed in a road accident, just this morning, when the vehicle they were travelling in, collided with a truck, on National Highway number 333 in Bihar’s Lakhi-sarai district.
Sushant’s family members were returning from Patna, where they had gone to attend the last rites of Geeta Devi, the sister of senior Haryana police officer OP Singh.
Now, you may remember, OP Singh is the brother-in-law of Sushant Singh Rajput who died on 14th June last year, under suspicious circumstances and OP Singh has been instrumental in pushing for further investigations into Sushant’s death.
Confirming the accident, which took place near Pipra under the Halsi police station, Lakhisarai SP Sushil Kumar said, “It was a massive collision between a truck and a Tata Sumo CAR in which ten persons were returning from Patna.”
He added that Six persons including the driver of the Sumo, were killed on the spot while four injured are in a critical condition
Two among the injured Balmukund Singh and Dil Khush Singh have been sent to Patna for better treatment facilities, while the remaining two, Balmiki Singh and Tonu Singh, have been admitted at Lakhisarai district hospital. The bodies of the deceased have been sent to Lakhisarai hospital for post-mortem. The deceased have been identified as Laljit Singh, who is (brother-in-law of sushants brother in law OP Singh), his two sons and one Ram Chandra Singh.
Police said that the family was returning to their home at Bhandar village in Jamui district when their vehicle crashed into a truck, coming from the opposite direction.
Although, they are not directly related to ssr, his sister Rani is married to OP Singh and is an IPS officer in Faridabad.
Following Sushants death he had penned down a beautiful and heart touching poem dedicated to him in which he had written
“Sushant was a set of brilliant traits – he was an effortless showman with immense courage. The first time I had a glimpse of it was on 24th May 1995. Wearing dark shades and knotted handkerchief as neck-over, he was setting the stage on fire. He was barely ten years old then, and the famous number was “tu cheez badi hai mast mast”.
The atmosphere was electric. The occasion was my marriage to his sister, twelve years older than him. I instantly knew that he was not ordinary.
”For the next seven years, he was largely his sister’s brother. But I did notice his natural flair to entertain in family get-togethers. He loved Urdu couplets and loved even more wah-wah that he so effortlessly harvested.
A grade-conscious student and a razor-sharp mind, the first time he came over to my place was in the year 1999. A police commando was shadowing him during his train journey, but thieves had better of the two, as both fell asleep. He reached home bare-footed and empty-handed, grinning ear-to-ear,” he said.
“Then came year 2002. He lost his mother who he loved so dearly. It left him stunned and inconsolable. Turning his eyes away from the body, he hesitated for a while for the last rites. A child’s mind could not think of consigning a body to flames – someone he adored, as his mother only a couple of hours ago.
But he quickly gathered himself. His usual butter-face turned steely as he calmly lit his mother’s funeral pyre. For weeks, his grins disappeared. Couplets for all reasons and seasons stopped coming forth. The very purpose of his life – to make his mother feel proud of him one day – seemed to have evaporated.”
Elaborating on Sushant’s gradual recovery from his mother’s death, OP Singh wrote,
“The best way to overcome grief is to allow oneself to be consumed by a big dream. To snap him back to his usual self, I took him around the city and pointed hundreds of billboards to him. I took him to the cinema halls and said,
“Hold tight boy, you are going to be a big movie star one day. Your posters will be all over. Your visits will be the talk of the town”. He says these diversionary tactics worked. The grin returned and so did the twinkles in his eyes and spring in his feet.
Talking about Sushant’s immense potential O.P. Singh wrote, “Chasing a big dream is so uplifting. It gives returns from day one.
People around you take you more seriously. You get reasons to get up early and walk the entire day with a purpose. It worked even better with Sushant. We loved being together. I said to anybody who cared to listen, “This boy is going to be a big movie star soon. Better take his autograph now.”
He got into the engineering college with spectacular ease.
His sisters worried for him as they had heard lots of awful things about engineering colleges. He sailed through, ragging famously, charming his determined tormentors with his trademark grin and wowing them with his fluid dancing moves. For fun, he gave home tuitions too. To avoid unwarranted attention from his wards, he sported loose-fitting kurta and thick-frame glasses and oiled his thick hairs profusely. To make up for the awfully-skewed gender ratio of his college, he joined a dance academy. Along with a chart to the top, he also started keeping in his pocket, what he called, his youth anthem – that I Presume must have gone something like this
“Fatela jeb sil jayega, Jo chahega mil jayega. Apne bhi din aayenge chhote, Achcha-khasa hil jayega.”
He concluded by saying, “We, in the family, see him as a warrior prince. He fought bravely. He won famously.
In the process, he suffered battle injuries that turned out to be fatal. We love him, so we miss him unbearably. But as a family that believes in value-creation and problem-solving, we assure him that the pursuit of excellence will continue. We see him in the league of Bruce Lee. Living short but making it large!”
And that was indeed true for Sushant Singh rajput, who made an indelible mark for himself in the Hindi film industry with amazing ease and continues to rule a million hearts even after his untimely death that continues to be shrouded in mystery.
Hopes, prayers and strength going out to his family and that of OP Singh, who is once again in throes of grief, following this unfortunate accident, that has a left them shattered. May the departed rest in peace.
