- Sushant’s father’s lawyer said- “the court ruled in our favor on all points”;
- Rhea argued that it was not right to conduct a CBI inquiry on the basis of FIR of Bihar Police;
CBI will investigate the case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The Supreme Court gave this order on Wednesday. The court said, “The Maharashtra government will not be able to challenge the CBI probe. The FIR lodged in Patna was correct.”
Vikas Singh, advocate for Sushant’s father, said, “The Supreme Court has also ordered that if any further FIR is registered in this case, the CBI will also investigate it. We hope to get justice very soon. After the Supreme Court verdict Sushant’s family is happy. “
Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty had appealed to transfer Patna’s investigation to Mumbai. In this case, the Supreme Court on August 11 had sought a written reply from all the parties while keeping the judgment reserve.
What did Rhea say about the CBI investigation?
Rhea had said that “it is illegal to transfer the case to the CBI, considering the investigation being done in Bihar as the basis. If the court itself decides to get the CBI investigated, then there will be no objection”.
How did the central government respond?
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had said that the decision of the CBI inquiry is correct. Mehta had also questioned the manner of the Mumbai Police. He said that “the Mumbai Police did not register any FIR, then how did they send summons to 56 people and record their statements?”
Mehta had also argued that ED has already filed a case in Sushant case. When a central agency has started an investigation, then there should be no objection to the investigation of other agencies also.
- Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey said, “The Supreme Court verdict is a victory for the sentiment of 130 crore Indians. The work we have done so far in the case of Sushant was done legally. When our officer went to Mumbai, he was quarantined, which was wrong. I am confident that the Sushant case will have the correct result, because it is the battle of India. Some people were restless that nothing would be revealed in this case. “
- Sanjay Jha, a minister and JDU leader in the Bihar government, said, “It seems the Mumbai Police was trying to close the case. It was only after the FIR lodged by Sushant’s family that the investigation started seriously. We want Sushant’s family to get justice. Will get it done. “
- Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti on Tuesday shared a photo of the Mahabharata on Instagram and wrote – “Move from darkness to light! Sharanagati.”
Who said what;
Bihar Government: On behalf of the state government, former Additional Solicitor, General Maninder Singh, had said that “the Chief Minister of Bihar did not interfere in the matter. The CBI probe was recommended on the advice of the officers concerned. There may be political pressure in Maharashtra, but it will not happen in Bihar. The Maharashtra Police also did not cooperate with the Bihar Police”.
Rhea’s lawyer: He had questioned the Bihar Police case. He said that “there is no connection with the Bihar Police’s FIR in this case. There is a possibility of discrimination there. There should be independent and impartial investigation”.
Government of Maharashtra: Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi had replied that “the State Government has submitted the inquiry report in a closed envelope. The Bihar government transferred this case very easily, even though it does not come under its jurisdiction”. Singhvi has also raised questions about recommending a CBI probe by the Bihar government.
Rhea Chakraborty: “The Patna Police case should be transferred to Mumbai considering it as a zero FIR. Sushant’s father has wrongly accused me. All my financial transactions are very clear. There is nothing that justifies me. I have no meaning in the case of Sushant’s death”.
Sushant’s father: KK Singh, through his lawyer Nitin Saluja, had given affidavit that Rhea has started influencing the witnesses. He said that questions were also raised on an email sent to Mumbai Police. If the mail was sent by Siddharth Pithani, how did Rhea and other important witnesses share it? Who is the biggest suspect in this case? The email was sent a day after the FIR was registered in Patna and a day before the case transfer was filed. It seems that Rhea pressurized important witnesses.
The Bihar government had recommended a CBI inquiry;
Sushant’s father KK Singh had lodged an FIR against Rhea in Patna. He accused her of having a part in Sushant to suicide. The Bihar government, on the other hand, recommended a CBI inquiry into the matter, which the Center accepted. After that, the CBI had registered a case against some people, including Rhea.
Sushant’s body was found hanging in his flat in Mumbai on 14 June. Police termed it a case of suicide. However, Sushant’s fans, family members and many politicians raised the demand for a CBI inquiry expressing suspicion of murder.
This case, that at first seemed very simple, has now turned out to be much more. Many high profile names are said to be linked to this case. Now that a CBI inquiry has been ordered, everyone is on edge, wanting to find out what exactly happened and who is involved.
