Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Nitesh Rane on Thursday sought a “narco test” on Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray in connection with the deaths of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Disha Salian based on the allegations levelled by Lok Sabha MP Rahul Shewale of the Eknath Shinde faction.

Questioning why Mr Thackeray’s name cropped up every time the deaths of Rajput and the latter’s former manager Disha Salian were discussed, Mr Rane said the allegations of Shewale must be taken seriously as he was close to the Thackeray family for a long time.
A “narco test” (narcoanalysis test) must be carried out on Aaditya Thackeray so that the truth about their deaths comes out, Mr Rane told the media outside the Vidhan Bhavan complex.
