Patna : Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday reacted to Supreme Court's decision of giving Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide case to CBI, however he refused to make any political comment, saying there is no political angle in the probe. 

"These things are not about politics, they are about justice. We are focused on providing justice. What was said, was not right. The probe will speed up now. Today it was proved that we abided by law in the steps we took,” the CM Nitish Kumar said after the Supreme Court entrusted the CBI with the investigation of the Bollywood actor’s death.

"Supreme Court verdict makes it clear that probe by Bihar Police & FIR registered here were correct. Not just Sushant Singh Rajput’s family or people of Bihar, the entire country is concerned over the matter. With CBI probe, people can trust there’ll be justice," he said.

"It was the duty of Bihar Police to probe after the complaint, but they didn’t get cooperation in Mumbai. Behaviour meted out to our IPS officer is known to all. With SC verdict, it’s clear what happened wasn’t right. Any political comment in this situation isn’t right," he added.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14. The Mumbai Police had claimed it a suicide and did not file any FIR. However, Sushant's family filed an FIR in Patna. The Bihar Police then launched a parallel investigation. 

It has been claimed that the Mumbai Police was showing no co-operation to Bihar Police in the matter.
