Opposing a CBI probe in actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death, the Mumbai Police told the Supreme Court on Saturday that it was carrying out an impartial enquiry and alleged that that the registration of a case by the Bihar Police was "politically motivated" and desecrated the principle of federalism.
The probe into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput has now taken a radical turn with the Maharashtra and the Bihar government pandering in an ugly blame game. The Bihar government has said that the Maharashtra police is not liaising with them in the probe, the Maharashtra government has said that their examination is going in the right direction, even rejecting calls for a CBI probe.
Government’s advocate General Lalit Kishore said the attitude of the Mumbai police is ill-fated. A team of Bihar policemen are in Mumbai acting on the first information report filed by the 34-year-old actor’s father against actor Rhea Chakraborty in Bihar on Tuesday in connection with his son’s death. The deceased actor’s father has flattened several allegations, including abetment to suicide, withdrawing crores from his son’s bank account & mental harassment against Rhea Chakraborty and six others, including her family members. Earlier, Maharashtra Minister had alleged that the Bihar probe team did not follow any protocol. Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty has filed a plea that the probe by Bihar’s police be stayed till the Supreme Court decides her plea on the transfer of investigation to Mumbai.
Well, we hope that justice is served without any hustle between the two states.
