Mumbai: A petition has been moved before the Chief Justice of Bombay High Court for an independent investigation or an SIT headed by a retired Judge in the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case.
The petition has been filed by Supreme Court advocate Sarthak Nayak and ‘Let us Talk Foundation’ head Kanchan Rai.
The petitioner says that they have found loopholes into the Mumbai police investigation so far and has also brought forth some jurisdictional issues.
They have also said that there is an apprehension of bias and that, in the interest of Justice, the case must be transferred.
Meanwhile, Rajput’s father, through his lawyer, has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court, so all action is notified.
In another development, the team of Patna Police now in Mumbai, has swung into action and has recorded the statement of Rajput’s cook. The cook was one of the first who noticed the death in the morning of June 14. The cook had contacted security of the building. A keysmith was called to open the door when repeated knocks did not yield any result. These recordings will be done today.
Yesterday they recorded Rajput’s sister Meetu Singh’s statement.
