In a significant order, the SC ruled the probe of Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide in favour of the Bihar government that favoured a CBI probe. The Maharashtra government's challenge has fallen flat, and Mumbai Police will have to hand over all the documents to CBI. Not only that, Maharashtra Police will have to aid the CBI.
The SC verdict on transfer of Sushant Singh Rajput death case to the CBI comes as disappointment to Maharashtra Police that challenged Bihar government's demand for the same.
Now Mumbai Police will have to hand over every document pertaining to the case.
Also, on every occasion whenever CBI officials deem it fit to take the help of Mumbai Police, it will have to cooperate.
The Maharashtra government tried its best to challenge the Bihar government’s contention to transfer the case as the incident occurred in Mumbai. However, based on the complaint in Patna by Sushant's father, the case was handed over to CBI.
Now, both Bihar and Maharashtra government cannot interfere in the CBI probe and let the agency investigate.
