Patna: The Bihar government on Tuesday recommended a CBI investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The move came after Sushant’s father requested Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to order CBI investigation into the death case.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had earlier ruled out a CBI investigation alongside the Mumbai police probe into the actor’s death on June 14.
As per reports, Union Home Minister Amit Shah last month forwarded a letter from former Bihar MP Pappu Yadav seeking CBI inquiry to the concerned ministry.
A team of the Bihar Police is in Mumbai to probe Rajput’s death after his father lodged a complaint in Patna against the late actor’s friend Rhea Chakraborty and other members of her family for allegedly abetting his suicide.
