Lawyer Keshav Mohan, who has been representing the Bihar government in the Supreme Court, passed away on Saturday morning due to Covid-related complications at a hospital here, his family said.
Mohan, who was in his early 40s, is survived by his wife and two children.
Enrolled with the Bar Council of Delhi after completing LLB from Campus Law Centre of Delhi University, Mohan was recently appointed as the Additional Standing Counsel to represent Bihar government in the top court.
He had successfully justified in the Supreme Court the decision of the Bihar government to transfer to the CBI the case related to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
The top court had accepted the recommendation of the Bihar government for a CBI probe into the FIR lodged at Patna by Rajput’s father, who had accused the actor’s former girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and six others of various offences including abetment of suicide.
Mohan had been appearing for the Sahara group and its chief Subrata Roy in the apex court in the matter related to a dispute of the company with markets regulator Sebi.
