The CBI has begun investigating Sushant Singh Rajput’s death after the Supreme Court last week ordered the agency to take over the case. The SC’s order was a part of its judgement in Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakarborty’s plea to transfer the FIR in the case from Patna to Mumbai.

The Supreme Court also told the Mumbai police to assist the CBI in the probe. The CBI team arrived in Mumbai a day after the top court’s verdict on August 20.

Apart from the CBI case, the Enforcement Directorate has also registered a case against Rhea and her family members. The Mumbai Police has handed over its probe documents to the CBI. It has, however, said that it will continue with the inquiry it was conducting into the accidental death report it had filed following Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.

Mumbai police probe to continue

The Mumbai Police has said that in keeping with the Supreme Court court order, its inquiry into the Sushant Singh Rajput case will continue, even as CBI has begun its investigation into it.

A government official said: “The SC order says that if during our inquiry, a cognizable offence is disclosed, we should transfer it to the CBI. This will be duly followed. The SC order was primarily about the transfer of the FIR registered by Bihar Police to Mumbai Police. It was not about the inquiry that is being conducted by the Bandra police.”

A senior police officer said the inquiry will continue “although people may not be summoned for recording statement for now”. So far, the Mumbai Police have registered the statements of 56 people, including filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Aditya Chopra.
