New Delhi: The Supreme Court today dismissed a plea seeking a CBI probe into Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
The bench comprising Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justice AS Bopanna and Justice V Ramasubramanian was hearing a petition filed by Alka Priya seeking CBI probe into the incident.
The petitioner submitted that Sushant was a good person and had sponsored several children to NASA. The bench however said that investigation has nothing to do whether a person was good or bad. Moreover, the matter is being investigated by Mumbai Police.
The bench while dismissing the petition said: “Let the police do its job. It has nothing to do with whether a person was a good person or a bad person. It is also about jurisdiction. Approach Bombay HC if you have anything concrete.”
Sushant’s father K.K Singh on July 25 filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty who happened to be his girlfriend, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including those pertaining to abetment of suicide and fraud. Sushant, 34, was found hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14 and since then the Mumbai police has been probing the case keeping in mind various angles.
