The Supreme Court dismissed a PIL seeking transfer of probe into Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case from Mumbai Police to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
A bench comprising Chief Justice S A Bobde and Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian said on Thursday that Mumbai Police are allowed to do the job, and if there is something, then a plea can be filed before the Bombay High Court.
“Go to Bombay High Court if you have anything concrete to show,” the bench said when the counsel for PIL petitioner Alka Priya sought the CBI probe into the death of the actor.
Rajput, aged 34, was found hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14 and since then the Mumbai Police have been probing the case keeping in mind various angles.
Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking transfer of an FIR from Patna to Mumbai and the stay on the investigation by the Bihar police on the allegations of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father that she abetted “suicide” of his actor son.
