The Centre has accepted the Bihar Government’s recommendation for a CBI probe into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s unnatural death, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
By the evening, the Department of Personnel and Training had issued a notification, paving the way for the CBI to probe Sushant’s case.
“The matter is now in public domain. Till the CBI takes over the investigation, the Mumbai Police should not do anything which will amount to destruction of evidence,” Mehta told Justice Hrishikesh Roy during hearing of a petition filed by actor Rhea Chakraborty seeking to transfer an FIR registered against her in Patna to Mumbai.
Mehta said the Centre should be allowed to be impleaded in the matter. Asking the Mumbai cops to file an affidavit to satisfy the court that it had handled the case in a professional manner, the Bench posted the matter for further hearing next week. A PIL too has been filed seeking a CBI probe into Sushant’s ex-manager Disha Salian’s death.
