Patna : Bihar CM and JD(U) National President Nitish Kumar on August 19, 2020, hailed the Supreme Court judgement upholding transfer of an FIR lodged in actor Sushant Singh Rajput (SSR)’s death case at Patna to the CBI. “The truth has triumphed,” Nitish said on the Supreme Court’s verdict.
“Some people wanted to give a political hue to the matter while the Bihar Government thought it was a matter related to Justice. Hope, after the Supreme Court verdict, the CBI would quickly probe the matter” Nitish said in a tweet.
Bihar DGP Gupteswar Pandey said that the Supreme Courts decision to transfer Rajput’s death case to the CBI vindicates State Police’s stand that it was doing things in accordance with the law and Constitution. The DGP’s comments came after the SC upheld the transfer to the CBI of an FIR lodged at Patna against actress Rhea Chakraborty and others for allegedly abetting the suicide of actor.
Rhea had challenged the Bihar governments jurisdiction in the matter and sought transfer of the case from Patna to Mumbai. She had also alleged that the Bihar government’s action was inspired by the upcoming state polls.
K K Singh, SSR’s 74-year-old father, had lodged an FIR with Rajiv Nagar police station, Patna, last month, nearly 40 days after his son was found hanging from the ceiling at his Bandra, Mumbai, residence on June 14, 2020.
