Meanwhile, in a major development, the Supreme Court on Thursday refused to entertain a PIL filed by petitioner Alka Priya demanding a CBI investigation in the death case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. 

Stating that the petitioner has no locus stand in the matter, the apex court said that the Mumbai Police is already probing the case and suggested the petitioner file a PIL in the Bombay High Court in order to seek appropriate relief. 

The order was dismissed by a bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde.
