The Supreme Court has directed the CBI to probe the case of Sushant Singh Rajput. Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh sat in a meeting with top officials of the ministry shortly after the apex court's verdict.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed the Maharashtra government's plea and directed a CBI probe into Sushant's case. Mumbai Police has been directed to hand over all the evidence obtained so far from the investigation to the CBI. The SIT team of CBI will soon meet the DCP Crime Branch Officer of Mumbai Police and take possession of the autopsy report, forensic report, statement and autopsy report of the mobile.
During the hearing, the apex court said the Bihar police had the right to file an FIR. The FIR filed in Patna is absolutely correct. Bihar police also had the right to investigate the case. In addition, the Mumbai police only saw Sushant's death as a suicide and investigated accordingly. On the other hand, Bihar police has registered an FIR after examining various aspects of the whole case.
So far, the Maharashtra government has been against the CBI probe into Sushant's case. The Maharashtra government has demanded that the Mumbai police complete its probe into the case. Because 57 statements have already been recorded in this regard. The Maharashtra government further said that the Mumbai Police has the right to investigate the actor's death case. Because Sushant died in Mumbai.
Earlier, Riya Chakraborty had filed a petition in the apex court alleging that it was completely illegal for the Bihar police to investigate Sushant's case and in this case it would be illegal to hand over the case to the CBI. The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed a CBI probe into Sushant's case.
Sushant's father lodged a complaint against Riya at Patna's Rajiv Nagar police station. Cases were filed under sections 341, 342, 360, 406, 506 and 307 of the Indian Penal Code.
