Bihar’s director general of police (DGP) Gupteshwar Pandey tweeted that An IPS officer Vinay Tiwari, heading a Patna Police team to investigate an ‘‘abetment to suicide’‘of actor SUSHANT SINGH RAJPUTS case was “forcibly quarantined” by civic authorities. This has created buzz in social media where Sushant fans claimed Mumbai police not helping in investigation .
He was sent Mumbai on the basis of a complaint filed by the late actor’s father in Patna.
“IPS officer Vinay Tiwari reached Mumbai today from Patna on official duty to lead the police team there but he has been forcibly quarantined by BMC officials at 11 PM today,” Pandey tweeted.
Meanwhile Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh again condemned the demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. He shared on social media that
“@MumbaiPolice already began investigating allegations about @itsSSR’s unfortunate alleged suicide. Even if Bihar Police registered an offence in Patna, under Ch. 12 & 13 of the #CrPC it has to be investigated, inquired and tried by police and courts within whose jurisdiction…,” Deshmukh said in a tweet.
“…the offence is committed. I condemn the demand for the @itsSSR case to be handed to #CBI. The case is now being politicised for political gains. #MaharashtraPolice is inquiring into the case professionally and are competent in digging out the truth, leaving no stone unturned!” he added.
Rajput’s father lodged a police complaint against actor Rhea Chakraborty and her family members and the department registered a first information report (FIR) under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including abetment to suicide.
Rajput’s father alleged that Chakraborty and her family kept his son away from his family, handled his bank accounts and took away crores of rupees. His FIR mentioned that when she found Rajput’s bank balance was depleting, she left his house on June 8 and took cash, jewellery and his medical reports along with her, and also blocked his mobile number.
