Mumbai: Following actress Rhea Chakraborty’s request for a CBI inquiry into the death of her boyfriend, late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh said that there is no need for CBI’s intervention.
Talking to Mid-Day, Anil said that the Mumbai Police did not suspect any kind of dishonesty in relation to Sushant’s suicide.
“I have the tweets and the campaign. But I don’t think that a CBI probe is required. The Mumbai Police are competent enough to handle such cases and they are investigating every aspect of the case including professional rivalry. As of now, we do not see any foul play. Details of the investigation will be shared once it is completed,” he said.
On Thursday, Rhea Chakraborty confirming herself as later actor Shushant’s girlfriend urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah for a CBI inquiry, in a photo-sharing app Instagram she said, “Respected @AmitShah sir, I’m Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty. It has been over a month since his sudden demise. I have complete faith in the government. However, in the interest of justice, I request you with folded hands to initiate a CBI inquiry into this matter. I only want to understand what pressures prompted Sushant to take this step. Yours sincerely #satyamevajayat.”
