Supreme Court has ordered CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) to investigate Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.
Earlier, the Supreme Court had taken up Rhea Chakraborty’s petition for transfer of the case to Mumbai, saying “whether there is any criminality in the situation is the matter to be investigated”.
On Tuesday (August 18, 2020), Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde had said in his statement that his client would like the truth of the matter to be revealed by virtue of a fair and impartial investigation.
He had said that in his client has admitted in her petition to the SC that she sent a message to Amit Shah Union HM to order a CBI investigation. He also said that Rhea had informed SC that she has no objection if the court transfers the case to CBI.
Rhea’s lawyer was quoted as saying, “What she has challenged is the illegal registration and investigation of Bihar Police without jurisdiction and transfer to CBI of an illegal investigation. Unless the Maharashtra government consents to a CBI investigation, the case cannot be transferred to CBI. Instead, the Bihar government ought to have transferred the investigation to Mumbai Police as per the Notification issued by the Union Government. The very foundation of the Federal Structure is at stake by the present actions for Bihar government.”
