    Home Minister Anil Deshmukh o Sushant Death Case

    The Maharashtra government will act as per directions of the Supreme Court in actor Sushant Singh Rajput case, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said here
    on Saturday and reiterated that the Mumbai Police are conducting the probe in a professional manner.

    Deshmukh's comments came two days after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took over the probe in the matter, based on a Patna police FIR related to alleged
    criminal conspiracy and abetment to suicide against late Rajput's girlfriend and budding actress Rhea Chakraborty.

    "Mumbai Police is investigating the case in a professional manner. How the investigation moves forward will depend on the order of the SC which will hear the matter on
    August 11. We will move ahead as per the directions of the apex court," Deshmukh told reporters.

    The Mumbai Police sources say that on the day of actor's death ie June 14, the forensic team was informed but the staff was not present due to the lockdown. As all were working from home, so the team arrived on the second day. When the team arrived, the room where the incident took place was sealed. We took all evidence on the same day, but Sushant's brother and sister had requested that the rent of that house is 5 lakh, so they have to vacate the house. 

    We did the necessary work and investigation and returned the house within a month. When the Bihar Police team reached there, the family members had already shifted the actor's belongings from the house. Mumbai police have made it clear that DCP Trimukhe spoke with Rhea for her summons and nothing personal.
