The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday rejected Rhea Chakrabortys petition to transfer the investigation from Bihar Police to Mumbai Police in the Sushant Singh Rajputs death case and ordered a CBI probe thereby upholding public demand.

A single-judge bench headed by Justice Hrishikesh Roy ruled that the FIR filed in Bihar was lawful and state government is competent to request a CBI probe.

The Supreme Court said since the Mumbai Police has only registered an accidental death report, the case had limited investigation leads. The Bihar Police on the contrary, registered a ?full-fledged FIR, which already stands referred to the CBI, the court informed.

During the judgement, the top court also asked Mumbai Police to co-operate with CBI investigations and provide necessary assistance.

If another case was registered in connection to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, the CBI would also probe it, SC said.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti, who had been campaigning for a CBI investigation, tweeted, Thank you God! You have answered our prayers!! But it is just the beginning… the first step towards the truth! Full faith on CBI!!


The case took a new turn, after Rajputs father KK Singh filed a complaint against Rhea Chakraborty and six others, responsible for abetment to suicide with Patna Police on July 25.

The complaint registered with Bihar Police led to investigations by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED) into the late actors financial status.

Singh in the registered FIR alleged that a total of Rs 15 crore was illegally transferred to Rheas account from Rajput’s account.

Rhea, however denied all the allegations and released a public statement that she will cooperate with investigations conducted by the ED and as advised by her lawyers she will refrain from commenting on anything.

The CBI has now registered a case against Rhea and her three family members.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
