For a few weeks now, fans and celebrities have been demanding for a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, as many feel that it's a planned murder and not a suicide. Sushant Singh Rajout was found hanging in his Bandra residence in Mumbai on June 14, 2020. The Mumbai Police is currently investigating the matter and has already recorded the statements of people who were close to Sushant.
The case took a new turn on July 26 when Sushant Singh Rajput's father Krishna Kishore Singh registered a first information report (FIR) against actress and Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty in Patna. An FIR was registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 'abetment to suicide'. A four-member police team from Bihar is currently in Mumbai to probe this case.
Now, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said that he is open to recommending a CBI probe into Sushant's death if the actor's father wants it and requests the state government for it. He also said that there is no question of a tug-of-war between the Bihar and Mumbai Police while investigating Sushant's death case.
According to PTI, Bihar minister Sanjay Kumar Jha, who's a close aide to Nitish Kumar said, "The Chief Minister will definitely act if demand for a CBI inquiry comes from the family of Rajput."
Meanwhile, ANI reported that according to Bihar Police sources, the Bihar Police team visited Cooper Hospital in Mumbai to seek Sushant's post-mortem report. However, they were not able to get the information, the reason of which is not known.
Recently, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said that there won't be any CBI probe in Sushant's death case, as the Mumbai Police is still carrying out the investigation. The Supreme Court of India also rejected a plea requesting for a CBI investigation in the matter. The apex court said that the police must be allowed to do their job instead.
