Centre Accepts Bihar Govt’s Recommendation For CBI Probe Into Sushant Singh Rajput’s Death
On hearing a petition by actor Rhea Chakraborty seeking the transfer of an FIR, from Patna to Mumbai, accusing her of abetting of Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide, the Supreme Court said that the truth behind the death of Rajput should come out.
The apex court has also asked for a status report by the Mumbai Police which is currently probing the death of the actor and has given Maharashtra, Bihar, and Rajput’s father KK Singh three days to respond to the plea by Chakraborty.
“Let the Maharashtra government respond to the plea of Rhea Chakraborty and so far as the death of the artist is concerned, that truth should come out,” the bench said during the hearing conducted through video-conferencing, reports NDTV.
During the hearing, the Centre also informed the SC that it has accepted the Bihar government’s recommendation for a probe by the CBI into the actor’s death.
According to media reports, in February this year, Rajput’s police officer brother-in-law O P Singh messaged a senior Mumbai police officer and claimed that his family feared that Rajput’s life was “going downhill” because he had “surrendered to a manipulative group of people”.
