Mumbai: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Chirag Paswan has requested Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to transfer the case of Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) without delay.
On 3 August, through a letter addressed to Kumar, Paswan urged the Chief Minister of Bihar to speak with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on “misconduct” with a Bihar police officer who investigated the case.
This comes after Patna’s Superintendent of Police (SP) Vinay Tiwari, who is leading a team investigating the case related to the actor’s death, was ejected from the house by municipal authorities in Mumbai.
“He said that you have the opportunity today to transfer the case filed in Bihar to the CBI. Because today both Bihar and Maharashtra police are investigating the case, but if the investigation is handed over to the Maharashtra government, then the Opportunity of transferring the case to CBI will slip from the hands of Bihar government, ”read the letter written to Kumar by the LJP national head.
“Nearly 50 days have passed since the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and till now the reason for this is not clear. As the truth is not revealed, his fans in Bihar and the country and the world are angry and disappointed. Every fan of the late actor is demanding a CBI inquiry so that the truth is revealed at the earliest,” it added.
The LJP national president said that earlier on June 18, he had requested Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to intervene in the case.
“Therefore, LJP again raises the demand to transfer the case of Sushant Singh Rajput to CBI without further delay.”
A bench of the Bombay High Court (HC) will hear the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) today (August 4) to refer the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
An FIR has been registered in Patna, based on a complaint filed by Rajput’s father KK Singh, against actor Rhea under several sections including abetment to suicide. A team of Bihar Police is in Mumbai to probe the matter.
