Sushant suicide case: SC rejects plea for CBI enquiry, says 'let police do their job'
New Delhi : The Supreme Court of India on Thursday rejected plea demanding CBI enquiry in the suicide case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The plea had asked the court to consider the public sentiment associated with the case and transfer it to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
A news channel flashed CJI's statement while rejecting the PIL filed in the matter. CJI Sharad Arvind Bobde said, “Let the police do their job,” while dismissing the plea.
Both the Mumbai Police and the Patna Police are investigating the case. While Sushant’s death case is being handled by the Mumbai Police, the Patna Police is dealing the matter with the angle of abetment of suicide after the late actor’s father filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty.
Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his apartment on June 14. The Mumbai Police said that he was found hanging from a ceiling fan of his apartment at Bandra’s Mont Blanc building. The actor was 34-years-old.
Many of his friends and fans have demanded a CBI probe as they believe that the actor cannot commit suicide and he has been murdered.
