The CBI registered a case against Rhea Chakraborty and others after Sushant’s father KK Singh filed a complaint with the Patna police against her and her family members alleging abetment of suicide.

The Patna FIR invokes IPC Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 380 (theft in dwelling house), 406 (criminal breach of trust) 506 (criminal intimidation),120B (criminal conspiracy) and 420 (cheating).

Sushant Singh Rajput’s family, fans and his colleagues from Bollywood have been campaigning for a CBI probe into his death since last month.

Rhea Chakraborty has told the Supreme Court that she has no objection if the probe into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput is transferred to the CBI. She, however, alleged that the Bihar police crossed their jurisdiction under “political pressure” and they could not transfer probe to the CBI.

CBI team in Mumbai exempted from home quarantine norms

A CBI team reached Mumbai on Thursday evening to probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, even as the municipal corporation announced it has been exempted from home quarantine. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had quarantined Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari earlier this month after his arrival to oversee probe in the actor’s death case.

A senior BMC official, who did not wish to be named, said the central investigation agency applied for exemption from the home quarantine rule. “They are on official duty and sought an exemption from quarantine norms. They have been given exemption from the home quarantine rule,” said the official.

Sushant Singh Rajput case politicised to malign Mumbai police: Shiv Sena

The Shiv Sena on Thursday said the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death was politicised to “malign” the Mumbai Police and the Maharashtra government. If the FIR registered in Patna was right, then if other “characters” in the case who hail from other states file an FIR in West Bengal, will the Kolkata Police get power to investigate it? the Shiv Sena asked.

"Several criminal cases in Bihar were investigated by the CBI. How many real culprits did the CBI arrest so far? Sushant’s case was politicised only to malign the Mumbai Police and the Maharashtra government,” Shiv Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana'.
