"Police didn't register FIR - Deepika started Chanting Depression theory - Doctors vanished - Home Minister of Maharastra and DCP terming suicide case. SOMETHING VERY WRONG in SYSTEM!! WE want CBI enquiry WE want Justice #SCForSSR," tweeted a user.
"Dear @deepikapadukone Hope you are not depressed? Just Asking! #SCForSSR," wrote another user.
"Public hates @deepikapadukone for taking undue advantage of the concoted story of depression in sushant's name frm the evng of the 14th. Shame on you @deepikapadukone U 2 ve a family ...how u did so inhumane thing ? #SCForSSR," tweeted a fan of Sushant.
"I liked her, But after this depression theory of her, makes herself an opportunist. Shame on u Deepika mam... If you can't came out to stand with truth at least please don't make nonsense depression theory ...#SCForSSR," expressed another Sushant fan.
"The most unpleasant thing isn't that she claimed he was depressed, giving her support to the theory of a driven-by-depression suicide that helped to cover up the killers, but when she understand depression was only an excuse to cover up the murder, she never apologized. #SCForSSR," tweeted another user.
