New Delhi: In the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Rhea Chakraborty and Bihar government’s lawyer have submitted a reply to the Supreme Court today. During the hearing on 11 August on Rhea Chakraborty’s plea (transferring the case from Bihar to Mumbai), the Supreme Court had asked all the parties to file an earlier verdict on August 13. In this case, Shyam Dewan from Rhea Chakraborty, Abhishek Manu Singhvi from the Maharashtra government, Maninder Singh from the Bihar government and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta from the Center had put forward their details.
Bihar government’s answer
The Bihar government, while filing a written reply in the SC, said that the only FIR in the case has been filed in Patna. On the recommendation of the Bihar government, the matter has been transferred to the CBI. So Rhea’s petition has no justification now. It has also been said on their behalf that Rhea ‘s petition has been nullified. In this answer, it was also mentioned that the Mumbai Police is under political pressure and the Bihar Police is not cooperating in the investigation.
In a written reply filed in the Supreme Court on behalf of Rhea, it has been said that Sushant’s father’s allegations against Rhea are baseless. Patna Police can only register zero FIRs, so the investigation of the case should be transferred to Mumbai Police. Along with this, it was also said that if the Supreme Court orders the case to be handed over to the CBI, then it has no objection.
Earlier, in this case, the Maharashtra government had also filed a caveat in the Supreme Court, stating that during the hearing on Rhea’s petition, the Maharashtra government’s side should also be heard and no one-sided order should be issued on Rhea’s petition. At the same time, in the same case, the Government of Bihar and the father of Sushant Singh Rajput had also filed a caveat in this case. Rhea Chakraborty had also said in her petition that the police of two places cannot investigate a case.
