CBI officials say they will take up Sushant Singh Death case investigation

 

CBI officials say agency will investigate Sushant alleged suicide matter. Amid unprecedented tug of war between police of Bihar and Maharashtra over the right to probe the death of the actor who was found hanging at his Mumbai residence on June 14, Centre has informed SC that Bihar government's recommendation for CBI probe into death case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput has been accepted. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta stated before Supreme Court that Centre has accepted Bihar govt's request recommending CBI enquiry into the death case. Rhea has been asked to appear before ED by Friday. 

Mehta, appearing for the Centre, submitted before Justice Hrishikesh Roy that the notification for the Central Bureau of Investigation will be issued soon, preferably by the end of the day. The top court, in its order, gave three days to all parties to put on record their respective stand. It also noted that the Mumbai Police must submits it's records of investigations done so far. Hearing on the matter is scheduled for next week.

"We want to know what Mumbai police have done so far," said Justice Roy. The counsel for the Maharashtra government opposed the CBI probe and argued that it is the Mumbai Police that is authorised to investigate under the CrPC. The Maharashtra government counsel also said that the Bihar Police's actions are "politically motivated" and insisted that under the CrPC, it is only the Mumbai Police that has "duty, power and function to register the case". 

The Supreme Court on Wednesday denied any interim protection to Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Rhea's counsel contended before Justice Hrishikesh Roy that his client needs interim protection from questioning in the case registered by the Bihar Police. But, the top court did not grant any relief.

    PIL in SC seeks CBI probe into Disha Salian's death too

    A PIL has been filed in the Supreme Court, seeking direction for a CBI probe into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput's former manager Disha Salian, along with that of the Bollywood actor, claiming "both are inter-linked".

    The plea, filed by advocate Vineet Dhanda, has sought direction to Mumbai Police to place on record the detailed investigation report in the case of Salian, after it was reported that her case file is missing or has been deleted.

    Dhanda urged the top court if after perusing the report, the court finds it unsatisfactory, then the matter may be referred to the Central Bureau of Investigation for further investigation.

    Salian died on June 8 after falling off the 14th floor of a residential building (Regent Galaxy) in Mumbai's Malad West. "A week later, on the morning of June 14, Sushant Singh Rajput allegedly died by suicide which creates suspicion," said the plea.

    Bihar DGP: Not possible to question Rhea as she is absconding

    The DGP said that IPS Vinay Tiwari will have to stay in quarantine for 14 days as the BMC has refused his request to leave them. He raised his doubt and said that even after showing after conducting the corona test they might show it positive. Whether or not Bihar Police will continue the investigation now, the DGP said, "How can we investigate when our officer is in quarantine, 4 people who had gone earlier are doing their duty while hiding."

    It is not possible to question Rhea as she is absconding. She is not coming out in front. People are saying she is in contact with the Mumbai police but I don't know. According to the instructions of the Supreme Court, whatever we have done so far, we will tell you everything. We did not get much time but still showed that there is something fishy in the matter.
