In Sushant Singh Rajput's death case investigation, police are probing various aspects like alleged professional rivalry, depression and financial transactions of the late actor. Sushant's father K K Singh had lodged an FIR in Patna claiming that a large sum of money was withdrawn from his account. Following these allegations, Mumbai Police have decided to appoint a team of financial forensic experts to ascertain if any dubious transactions had taken place. Meanwhile, Governor of Bihar has accorded his consent to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate/supervise and inquire into the case registered in Patna.

Bihar government has handed over Sushant Singh Rajput's death case to CBI on the basis of FIR registered in Patna. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on request of Sushant’s family handed over the case to CBI on Tuesday, which was being probed by Patna police.

Supreme Court is scheduled to hear on Wednesday the plea of Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty seeking transfer of an FIR, accusing her of abetting suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, from Patna to Mumbai. 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, the actress has sought transfer of FIR lodged in Patna on ground of jurisdiction.

The hearing before a bench headed by Justice Hrisheksh Roy would be keenly watched as Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday recommended CBI probe to the Centre in the sensational case at the request of Rajput’s father, Krishna Kishore Singh.

Earlier, Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) Gupteshwar Pandey Pandey had said that Vinay Tiwari had been "forcibly quarantined" by the municipal authorities in Mumbai, following which Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had stressed that this is not a political issue and said the state DGP will speak to the Maharashtra Police in the matter.

Actor Rhea Chakraborty's advocate on Monday refuted Bihar Polices claim that she was "missing", and said till date she has not received any summons from them in connection with the case of actor-friend Sushant Singh Rajput's death. The Bihar Police earlier said their team had failed to locate Rhea Chakraborty. However, her advocate Satish Maneshinde in a statement said, "The contention of Bihar police that Rhea Chakraborty is missing is not correct. Till today, no notice or summons has been received by her from the Bihar police."

    Quarantining of police officer clearly means they want to obstruct investigation: Vikas Singh, lawyer of Sushant's father

    The lawyer of Sushant Singh Rajput's father told ANI, "I don't think any state govt would have quarantined an enforcement officer. Quarantining of a police officer clearly means they want to disable or obstruct the investigation by Patna police. Basically, Mumbai Police is buying time to ensure that the evidence gets destroyed. So we decided that this matter should be given to CBI and Nitish Kumar had earlier promised that if the father wants a CBI probe, it will be handed it over to CBI."

    Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey: Family's trust was broken

    Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey, in an interview with IndiaTV, said that the family's trust might have broken looking at the condition of Bihar Police in Mumbai which is why they took this step. They must have understood that Bihar police want to help them but they are unable to do things because of a lack of co-operation. "Sushant's father has not spoken to me for now, once he will speak to me we will forward their plead to the government, says DGP. He also said that will not send any officer to Mumbai now because it is of no use now.

    Speaking to IANS, Pandey alleged that Mumbai Police was "not cooperating" with Bihar Police in the probe into the alleged suicide case of Bollywood actor and was "speaking the language of actress Rhea Chakraborty" who has been blamed by the bereaved family for the death of Rajput.

    Bihar CM Nitish Kumar: If CBI will take things in their hands, there will be a proper investigation

    Bihar CM Nitish Kumar told IndiaTV, "I have spoken to his father and family and they have given the consent. The CBI inquiry was suggested by everyone in the case. As soon as Sushant's father filed an FIR in the case, Bihar police started their investigation but they did not get co-operation from the Mumbai police. Bihar IPS Vinay Tiwari was also quarantined despite proving prior information of his arrival. Today only we have got the consent the family and so CBI inquiry will take place. If CBI will take things in their hands, there will be a proper investigation. The treatment by the Mumbai police was not right. Not only Bihar, but the country also has the same demand. The recommendation will go to the CBI today itself and the detailed information will be given to you by DGP.
