Nitish told the media recently, “Everybody has been demanding a CBI probe in the actor’s case. The matter was also raised in the Bihar assembly on Monday and some MLAs demanded a CBI probe. After seeing the lack of cooperation from Mumbai police in probe by Patna police, I’m also of the view that CBI should conduct an inquiry in the case.”
