The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a chargesheet against Deepti R Pinniti, a self-styled investigator and YouTuber based in Bhubaneshwar, in response to a complaint lodged by Mumbai-based lawyer Chandni Shah.
According to PTI, CBI officials revealed on Sunday that the YouTuber allegedly presented ‘forged’ letters from high-ranking officials, including Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, to support her claims. Deepti had previously made sensational allegations regarding the deaths of Sushant Singh Rajput and Sridevi, both of whom passed away in 2020. Chandni Shah filed a complaint against Deepti and her lawyer Bharath Suresh Kamath, pointing out that the YouTuber deceptively showcased records from the UAE government in her videos and live sessions, which appeared to be forged.
Mumbai-based lawyer Chandni Shah stated in her complaint “The suspect Deepti Rani Pinniti has time and again maligned the image of the present government by bizarrely accusing the government as the sponsor of the death of Sridevi”
CBI, in a report submitted to a special court, claimed that they raided Deepti’s house in December of the previous year, seizing her phones and laptops. It was during the investigation that they discovered the alleged forgery of documents related to the prime minister and defence minister during her live sessions.
The agency filed a chargesheet against both Deepti and Kamath under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, including criminal conspiracy.
Responding to the chargesheet, Deepti claimed that her statements were not recorded by the CBI regarding the case. She argued, “When the letters in question are incriminating against the very authorities under whom the CBI comes, CBI becomes a party of conflict to be the entity to collect evidence.”
Deepti Pinniti, described as a ‘businesswoman investigating mysterious deaths related to Bollywood’ in a YouTube video, had previously discussed cases involving individuals like SSR, Sridevi, Disha Salian, and others.
