Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in mid-June sent shock waves through the country. His death case too is sending more such shocks with new revelation, confession or allegation being made every day. The investigation pertaining to the actor’s untimely demise is getting murkier by the minute.
Bihar Police on Tuesday, during a Supreme Court hearing, termed the Mumbai Police’s investigation into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput a “facade” and claimed it appeared that the police in Mumbai were “hiding facts under political pressure”.
“Mumbai Police could not have carried on the investigation into Rajput’s death on the basis of an accidental death report after post mortem report was available on June 25,” Bihar government’s counsel told the apex court.
“What kind of an investigation Mumbai Police have been undertaking for the last 50 days? Inquest report proceedings can’t be unending. And most importantly, there is nothing pending in Mumbai at the moment,” said the counsel.
Appearing before Justice Hrishikesh Roy, senior advocate A.M. Singhvi representing the Maharashtra government pointed out, “the kind of sensationalism attached to this transfer petition is amazing.
“Every reporter, anchor, lawyer has turned judge, jury, executioner. I don’t know whether his death was murder or suicide, but I can say the murder of CrPC is being attempted here.”
In a new turn of events now, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family is alleging pure murder and not abetment to suicide against Rhea Chakraborty. Meanwhile, the angle of money laundering is also being strongly probed. Despite being grilled for hours, Rhea Chakraborty and her brother have failed to explain the sudden inflow of cash in their accounts and their ITR.
