Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case LIVE Updates: The Centre has moved the Supreme Court on Friday seeking to make itself a party to Rhea Chakraborty’s petition in Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Rhea, who is being investigated by the CBI on charges of abetting Rajput’s suicide, has sought transfer of the FIR filed against her by the Bihar Police to Mumbai. The court will hear the matter again next week. Meanwhile, Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari, who came to Mumbai for probe in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case and was quarantined by BMC, has reached Patna. "I would say I wasn't quarantined, the investigation was quarantined. Investigation of Bihar Police was obstructed," said Tiwari. In another development, Rhea Chakraborty appeared before ED after it refused to accept her request for postponing statement recording.

After Central Government's order on August 5, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has finally taken over Sushant Singh Rajput's death case. On Thursday, CBI re-registered an FIR of alleged criminal conspiracy and abetment to suicide against  Rhea Chakraborty, her family members and 3 others on the basis of the FIR filed by Bihar Police on the late actor's father KK Singh's complaint. Total of 6 people have been accused. Today, Rhea Chakraborty will appear before ED for interrogation. The actress's lawyer Satish Maneshinde had requested that the recording of her statement be postponed till Supreme Court hearing but the ED rejected the appeal. ED has asked Rhea to appear for the probe, if she doesn't appear today, the second summon notice will be sent.

Sushant Singh Rajput's death case is being investigated under CBI's Special Investigation Team (SIT) under Manoj Shashidhar (IPS- Gujarat Cadre). On the other hand, Enforcement Directorate (ED) interrogated one of the accused Samuel Miranda on Thursday for nine hours. 

Sushant Singh Rajput's call records show that the actor had discussed his new films with two Bollywood producers. He had talked to Ramesh Taurani on June 13 and was excited about the project. The filmmaker was shocked to hear about his sudden and tragic death the next day.

    SSR's family's lawyer, Vikas Singh: Sushant was not out of work

    Sushant Singh Rajput's family's lawyer, Vikas Singh said, "Sushant Singh did not have work only because whenever any producer or director used to call Sushant, Rhea used to say that they have to cast her along with the actor. When Rhea left his home on June 8, Sushant started working again. There was no problem of work."

    He added, "No matter how nepotism is in the film industry, the person who has talent definitely gets work. Sushant was not the first person, Shah Rukh Khan is also an example of this. Perhaps the Mumbai Police is trying to give the case another twist, so the theory was brought out that Sushant had no work which is wrong."

    Court asked CBI on whose complaint they have filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and 5 others? Additional Solicitor general, Anil Singh appearing for CBI, said the case has been lodged on Sushant's father KK Singh's complaint. He further stated that it is in everyone's best interest that the CBI takes over the case.

    Anil Singh said, "the manner in which the matter is being handled by mumbai police is questionable. An IPS officer who had come from Bihar to probe the case was forced into quarantine. When some officers came to arrest people in the Vikas Dubey case then no one was asked to quarantine. Then why only in this case, the Maharashtra government authorities made an IPS officer place himself in quarantine."
