INVESTIGATION

  • The Supreme Court Wednesday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case and asked Maharashtra to assist with the probe. The Mumbai Police will now hand over all the evidence collected in the case so far to the investigating agency.
  • The top court also upheld the FIR registered in Patna by Sushant’s father K K Singh. “FIR registered at Patna was correct and reference to CBI is lawful. The Bihar government is competent enough to transfer case to CBI for investigation,” Justice Hrishikesh Roy said.


CBI

  • The bench further said, “The state of Maharashtra refused the option to challenge the order and that the jurisdiction of the Mumbai Police conducting probe under Section 174 CrPC (enquire on suicide) is limited.” “If any other case is registered regarding Sushant’s death, the same shall be probed by CBI only,” the court added.
  • Rhea had moved the apex court after Patna police lodged an FIR on Sushant’s father’s complaint, accusing her and five others of abetment to suicide, cheating, criminal breach of trust, criminal intimidation and wrongful confineme


BIHAR DGP RESPONSES

  • Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey also expressed his happiness over the judgment and said it has strengthened the trust people have in the Court. “I am very happy. The Supreme Court’s order has strengthened the trust people have in the Court and has assured the nation that justice will be delivered…Today’s verdict has proved that Bihar Police was correct. The way Mumbai Police behaved was illegal,” Pandey told ANI.


 RESPONSE

  • Reacting to the verdict, Singh’s lawyer Vikas Singh said this is a victory for Sushant’s family. “This is a victory for Sushant Singh Rajput’s family. SC ruled on all points in our favour. The Court also clearly said that the FIR registered at Patna was correct,” ANI quoted Vikas Singh as saying.

  RESPONSE

  • On August 11, the top court had reserved its verdict on the petition. During the hearing, both the Bihar and Maharashtra governments had accused each other of doing politics over Rajput’s death.
  • Also, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who appeared for the Centre, had referred to the Maharashtra affidavit stating that Mumbai Police had recorded statements of 56 witnesses and none of them have a doubt about Rajput committing suicide.

RELIEF

  • On August 5, the Supreme Court had taken up Chakraborty’s petition, saying “whether there is any criminality in the situation is the matter to be investigated”.
  • Rajput, aged 34, was found hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14.
