Supreme Court asks CBI to take over Sushant case: First step towards victory, says sister Shweta Singh Kirti.
MUMBAI:The apex court was hearing a plea filed by actor Rhea Chakraborty who was seeking to transfer the complaint, filed against her by father of Sushant , from Patna to Mumbai.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to probe the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The apex court was hearing a plea filed by actor Rhea Chakraborty who was seeking to transfer the complaint, filed against her by father, from Patna to Mumbai. Sushant s father KK Singh had earlier registered an FIR against Rhea and five others for abetment of suicide.
The top court also upheld the FIR registered in Patna. “FIR registered at Patna was correct and reference to CBI is lawful. The Bihar government is competent enough to transfer the case to CBI for investigation,” Justice Hrishikesh Roy said.
The Supreme Court verdict was welcomed by the late actor family members and former partner-actor Ankita Lokhande.
