    CBI To Probe Sushant Singh Case; Supreme Court Setback For Maharashtra

    The apex court directed the Mumbai police to hand over all evidence it has collected to the investigating agency

    GUWAHATI: Asking the Mumbai police to handover the investigation of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death to CBI, the Supreme Court on Wednesday said the FIR registered in Patna based on a complaint filed by the deceased actor’s father was correct and Bihar was competent to ask the CBI to investigate the case.

    Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14.

    A single-judge bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy pronounced the judgment.

    Rejecting actor Rhea Chakraborty’s petition to transfer the investigation from Patna to Mumbai, the apex court directed the Mumbai police to hand over all evidence it has collected to the investigating agency.

    In her petition, Chakraborty said that the Bihar Police have no jurisdiction in the case and that the actor’s death was being used for political gains ahead of elections in the state.

    The deceased actor’s father had alleged that Chakraborty illegally transferred Rs 15 crore from Rajput’s bank account. However, she denied all allegations and would cooperate with an investigation launched by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

    The CBI also registered a case against Chakraborty and three members of her family members.

    Many film actors immediately started to react on the SC judgment and tweeted. Akshay Kumar tweeted: “SC directs CBI to investigate Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. May the truth always prevail”

    Kangana Ranaut tweeted: “Humanity wins, congratulations to each one of SSR warriors, first time I felt such strong force of collective consciousness, AMAZING”
