Reacting to the Supreme Court’s decision for a CBI probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that everything was done as per the law in Bihar. He also denied any kind of politics in the matter.
Today, the Supreme Court ordered the Central Bureau of Investigation to take over the Sushant Singh Rajput case. It also told the Bihar police to hand over the case registered with them to the CBI.
After this order, the CM Nitish Kumar said: “After the Supreme Court’s decision, it is now clear that whatever was done in Bihar (in relation to Sushant Singh Rajput’s case) was constitutional, legitimate and as per the law.”
Expressing happiness over this decision, Nitish said, “This is a victory of justice, not of us. We have followed the Constitution and after this decision, it is believed that the family will now get complete justice.”
Asked if there was any politics in it, he said that it has nothing to do with politics, it has a relation with law and justice only. Meanwhile, Information and Public Relations Minister of Bihar Neeraj Kumar said that with the decision of the Supreme Court, the public’s trust in the judicial system has been strengthened.
He said that non-cooperation by the Mumbai police with the Bihar police team was to obstruct the probe. This team came to Mumbai after Sushant Singh Rajput’s father registered an FIR in Bihar.
He said that on the request of family members, the Chief Minister recommended a CBI inquiry.
