In the latest development in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, the late actor's father KK Singh has requested the Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar to order a CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) probe.
As per an ANI tweet, Sushant's father has spoken to Bihar CM and requested him to order CBI investigation in Sushant's death case. Earlier, Singh had released a self-made video, in which he expressed his lack of faith in the probe being conducted by the Mumbai Police.
