The Supreme Court of India has transferred the Sushant Singh Rajput case to CBI. It’s a blow to prime accused Rhea Chakraborty, Maharashtra government and the state police. Not only has the apex court transferred the case to CBI but also given its powers to investigate any other case that has any connection to the death of Rajput. It paves the way for a thorough investigation into the Disha Salian case too.

“SC also said that any other FIR registered in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death will also be investigated by the CBI. We hope that we should get justice very soon. The family is very happy with the verdict,” Vikas Singh, Rajput family lawyer told reporters after the verdict.

“In such backdrop, to ensure public confidence in the investigation and to do complete justice in the matter, this Court considers it appropriate to invoke the powers conferred by Article 142 of the Constitution. As a Court exercising lawful jurisdiction for the assigned roster, no impediment is seen for exercise of plenary power in the present matter. Therefore while according approval for the ongoing CBI investigation, if any other case is registered on the death of the actor Sushant Singh Rajput and the surrounding circumstances of his unnatural death, the CBI is directed to investigate the new case as well. It is ordered accordingly,,” Justice Hrishikesh Roy mentioned in the court order.

Rajput’s former manager Disha Salian had died on the night of 8 June after falling off a high rise apartment in Muumbai. The Malvani police [Mumbai] had registered an Accidental Death case. Thus far, the Malvani police hasn’t found any foul play in the case. Salian’s father Satish, too, had expressed confidence into the probe being conducted by the Mumbai police.

Ganesh Hirwarkar, a dancer and friend of Rajput had claimed that there is connection between Disha Salian and Rajput’s death. Rajput was found dead on 14 June in his Mumbai apartment. In his FIR filed in Bihar, Rajput’s father KK. Singh has accused Rhea Chakraborty and her family of abetting his son’s suspected suicide.
