Sushant probe: Mumbai vs Bihar Police as Patna SP is quarantined.

Mumbai: Vinay Tiwari, Superintendent of Police, Patna City (Central), was sent to Mumbai to monitor the investigation by a Bihar Police team, which is probing an “abetment to suicide” case on the basis of a complaint filed by the father of the died actor in Patna last week.

THE INVESTIGATION into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput turned into a Mumbai Police versus Bihar Police row on Monday, with Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari alleging that he was “selectively quarantined” till August 15 after his arrival in Mumbai on Sunday. Tiwari, Superintendent of Police, Patna City (Central), was sent to Mumbai to monitor the investigation by a Bihar Police team, which is probing an “abetment to suicide” case on the basis of a complaint filed by the father of the died actor in Patna last week.

In his complaint, on the basis of which an FIR was lodged in Patna on July 25, KK Singh had accused actor Rhea Chakraborty and her family members of abetting the suicide of his son and defrauding him of his money.

Rajput was found hanging in his apartment in Mumbai on June 14. The Mumbai Police is probing a case of accidental death.

Meanwhile, political parties in Bihar, which have been demanding a CBI probe into the death of the actor, raised the matter in the House on Monday. BJP MLA Neeraj Kumar Singh, who is relative of Rajput, first raised the demand for a CBI probe, and received the support of almost all parties.

The Lawyer of Rhea Chakraborty, Satish Maneshinde, denied that she was “missing”. “The contention of Bihar Police that Rhea Chakraborty is missing is not correct. Her statement has been recorded by Mumbai Police. She has cooperated with the police, as and when called. Till today, no notice or summons have been received by her from Bihar Police and they have no jurisdiction to investigate the case,” he said.
