By Our Correspondent
In a blow to Rhea Chakraborty, the Maharashtra government and the state police, the Supreme Court of India has transferred the Sushant Singh Rajput case to the Central Bureau of Investigation.
A single bench judge of Justice Hrishikesh Roy took few minutes to pronounce the order in the petition filed by Chakraborty seeking transfer of the FIR against her in Bihar to Mumbai. Roy considered all aspects , all viewpoints and came to conclusion that the Bihar government was competent in requesting for a CBI investigation. It acknowledged that the FIR filed by Bihar police was lawful and has asked the Mumbai police to fully cooperate with the CBI into the investigation.
With this verdict, Rhea Chakraborty’s plea for transfer of the FIR against her in Bihar to Mumbai, stands disposed.
Meanwhile, in another major development, the Supreme Court has squashed any hope of the Maharashtra government’s to challenge the Supreme Court order.
Vikas Singh, the Rajput family lawyer told reporters, “The Maharashtra government [counsel] had told that it would challenge the order but this was struck down by the SC.”
A relieved Shweta Singh Kirti, sister of Sushant Singh Rajput, tweeted, “There we go! Finally! CBI for SSR.”
“Thank you God! You have answered our prayers!! But it is just the beginning… the first step towards the truth! Full faith on CBI!! #Victoryoffaith #GlobalPrayersForSSR #Wearefamily #CBITakesOver,” added Kirti.
Congratulations to my extended Family!! So happy… first step towards victory and unbiased investigation. #JusticeforSushantSingRajput #OurfullfaithonCBI,” tweeted Rajput’s sister.
