Solicitor General Tushar Mehta made a statement confirming that the Bihar government’s request for transfer of Sushant Singh Rajput’s case to CBI has been accepted. This is a groundbreaking achievement for all the SSR fans who have been tweeting day and night to build pressure on the stakeholders. The court maintained a reaffirming stance by saying, “truth should come out so far as actor’s death is concerned.”
Sushant Singh Rajput’s case to get a CBI probe
The recent turn of events in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death investigation has exposed the ugly side of fame and Bollywood. Not only are his friends and ex-girlfriend in suspicion, but many big names from the industry have also been questioned by the Mumbai Police. However, Sushant Singh Rajput’s case received the utmost attention from the media and his fans. Unsatisfied by the Mumbai Police’s investigation, the SSR army has been demanding a CBI probe for a very long time.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s case was up for hearing today in Supreme Court and a ray of hope has been signaled: Solicitor General Tushar Mehta stated that a CBI probe request has been accepted by the Centre. This is an important step since the CBI falls under the home ministry, therefore, the involvement for the central government serves as the important first step in this row. According to Republic TV, the case will get handed over to CBI by the end of the day.
Bihar CM, Nitish Kumar, backed the CBI probe appeal
Uptill now, ministers have maintained a sealed silence in the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death investigation row. Breaking the bandwagon, Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar addressed the media yesterday and said, “The DGP spoke to #SushantSinghRajput’s father this morning and he gave consent for CBI inquiry. So now, we are recommending CBI probe in the matter.”
This statement was not received well by Rhea Chakraborty’s side and her lawyer refuted it by saying, “There can’t be transfer of a case which had no legal basis for Bihar to get involved. At most, it would be a ‘Zero FIR’ transferable to Mumbai Police. Transfer of a case, on which they had no jurisdiction, to CBI has no legal sanctity.” This is, however, ironic since Rhea herself has demanded a CBI probe in the past. Along with this, Rhea has also filed a petition for the investigation to be transferred from Patna to Mumbai.
