Ishkaran Singh Bhandari, lawyer of former Cabinet Minister Subramanian Swamy, has called for a peaceful digital protest to demand justice for Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who passed away in Mumbai last month.
Bhandari has urged Sushant's fans to light a candle in his name at 8pm on Wednesday and share photographs on Twitter tagging him, which he will retweet.
The protest, #Candle4SSR, is also a peaceful way of requesting authorities to initiate a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the actor's untimely demise.
Bhandari shared a video of himself urging everyone to take part in the peaceful protest.
"3, 00, 000+ views of this video asking 1st ever Digital Protest in World for Justice to SSR!
75, 000+ tweets of #Candle4SSR. Let's all light candles, at 8pm Today!
Let's Make HISTORY!
Tweet/FB/insta pictures or VIDEO & TAG me, will retweet!"
Bhandari tweeted on an unverified account on Wednesday.
"I too will light a candle at 8 pm in memory of SSR and promise to bring to book those behind his untimely and unnatural death, " shared Swamy on his verified Twitter account the same day.
Sushant was found hanging at his residence on June 14.
