Sushant Singh Rajput's death: Centre accepts Bihar govt's request for CBI probe

The government has accepted Bihar government's request of CBI probe into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death, Centre's senior second-most law officer Tushar Mehta stated it before the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Solicitor General Mehta made the submission during hearing of a plea by actor Rhea Chakraborty.

Rhea had sought transfer of the case registered in Patna to Mumbai.

The top court asked the parties involved to file their response in three days.

SC has also ordered Maharashtra government to apprise court of the stage of probe by Mumbai Police.

The case will now be heard next week.

Sushant's father KK Singh had filed a police complaint against Rhea in Patna.

Singh accused her of abetting his son's alleged suicide in June and alleged that Rhea illegally transferred Rs 15 crore from his son's bank account.

Rhea challenged Bihar police's jurisdiction, saying the alleged crime took place in Mumbai.

On Tuesday, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar had recommended that the CBI take over the case.

Kumar said the decision was taken after Sushant's father met state police chief.

Sushant's father had also met Kumar seeking CBI investigation in the case.

Singh alleged Mumbai police of inaction even after 40 days of actor's death.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday condemned the quarantine order against IPS officer Vinay Tiwari. Nitish said the order was “not right” and Bihar DGP is talking to authorities in Mumbai.

Explaining the 'forcibly quarantined' allegation, BMC on Monday said that Tiwari was quarantined as per the present guidelines for domestic arrivals at Mumbai Airport. A team of Bihar Police is in Mumbai to probe the matter on the basis of an FIR which was registered in Patna, based on a complaint filed by Rajput's father KK Singh against actor Rhea Chakraborty under several sections including abetment to suicide.
