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 Sushant's father K K Singh had lodged an FIR in Patna claiming that a large sum of money was withdrawn from his account.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."
