Sushant Singh Rajput: CBI probe into FIR against Rhea Chakraborty lawful; Mumbai Police to hand over all evidence, Supreme Court

The Supreme Court today held that the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) probe into the FIR lodged against actress Rhea Chakraborty in connection with the death of Sushant Singh Rajput is lawful.

The Court has further directed the Mumbai Police to hand over all the evidence in the case to the CBI.

On July 30, Chakraborty moved the Supreme Court seeking transfer of the case lodged against her.

The transfer petition states that the FIR in Patna alleging abetment to suicide charges against Chakraborty is nothing but an act of "connivance" between the State of Bihar and Rajput's father.

During the hearings before the Supreme Court, the Maharashtra and Bihar governments assailed each other's jurisdiction to investigate the matter, while both alleging that the issue was being politicized.

Meanwhile, the Bihar Police handed over the investigation in the matter to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
