Actor Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide case investigation has gained momentum with ED and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish KUmar stepping in. Talking to India TV, Bihar CM said that the state government is willing to order a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death if his family requests the state to do so. Sushant Singh Rajput's family had filed a cheating case against his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty in a 6-page long FIR.
With new revelations, twists and turns daily, the case has turned murkier and the demand for a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has gained more strength. Not just fans, but many leaders from the political parties have also demanded a CBI probe in the case. After Sushant's father filed an FIR on Rhea Chakraborty accusing her of abetment to suicide, the actress reacted to the allegations on Friday and claimed that 'truth shall prevail." She also gave clarification about her viral video doing rounds on the internet in which she is seen talking about being a 'don' and controlling the boyfriend. Her reaction came after Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a money laundering case on the basis of a Bihar Police FIR.
The investigation has blown into a tug of war between the Bihar and the Mumbai Police. Actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showick's statements are yet to be recorded. "The Chief Minister will definitely act if demand for a CBI inquiry comes from the family of Rajput," said Bihar minister Sanjay Kumar Jha, who's a close aide of Nitish Kumar, according to PTI. Bihar Police visited Cooper Hospital seeking the actor's postmortem report.
