Installing logstash-output-kusto plugin thru logstash container deployment

Could someone please provide guidance on how we can install additional plugins like logstash-output-kusto using a command like bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-output-kusto inside a logstash container?

Any example code would definitely help.

I tried setting up the logstash.yml using

  - name: logstash
    imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent
    command: ['sh', '-c', 'bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-output-kusto']

but when the yaml is kubectl deployed, the pod continuously crashes with backoff. ON commenting out the line command: the pod gets created fine.

Tried configuring the InitContainer instead of just Container to install the plugin using the above shown command and the InitContainer terminates fine with a status "Completed". But then when the main Container is running, it is throwing below error in LiveLogs -
