But the Nationalist Congress Party chief also takes a subtle dig at the CBI
By Anannya Srusti
The Supreme Court announced its verdict on Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case yesterday (19 August) handing over the case to Central Bureau of Investigation. The decision was welcomed by Rajput’s family and friends and several Bollywood celebrities. Among this also came a rather surprising tweet of support by Parth Pawar, son of Maharashtra’s Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar.
Now another member of the Pawar family has reacted to the CBI taking over the case. Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar shared a couple of tweets assuring full cooperation but also took a subtle dig at the CBI.
“I am sure the Maharashtra Govt will respect the judgement of the Supreme Court to handover Sushant Singh Rajput’s case to the CBI and fully cooperate in the investigation process”, tweeted Pawar.
He further went on to say that “I hope the investigation will not be carried on, as was done with Dr Narendra Dabholkar’s murder case also under investigation by the #CBI which commenced in 2014 and remains unresolved.”
Earlier when Parth Pawar, son of his nephew Ajit pawar called for a CBI investigation, the NCP president had called him immature stating, “Parth Pawar is immature and his demand of CBI inquiry is not worth considering.” This had reportedly upset both his nephew [Deputy CM Ajit Pawar] and grand nephew. The comment had also led to the Maharashtra Government and the NCP facing criticism. The Maharashtra government comprises of the NCP-Shiv Sena-Congress coalition.
The Supreme Court has asked the Mumbai police to hand over all the evidences collected during the case to the CBI and said that it must be determined “whether the unnatural death of Sushant Singh Rajput was result of any criminal act”.
