Maharashtra Minister Aslam Shaikh on Tuesday said that the Mumbai Police has done proper investigation into the case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. “Still, if the Centre feels that there should be further investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) then they should do it,” the Congress leader said.
“Some people are jumping into the matter so that their names appear in the media,” Aslam Shaikh said. “Some of them are not going for shoots these days and sitting at home, so they want to get into controversies,” he added.
Earlier on Saturday, former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said it was a “public sentiment” that the probe in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death be conducted by the CBI even though he believes in capability of the Maharashtra Police.
“I have worked with the Maharashtra Police for the last five years, so I know their capabilities. However, sometimes, police function under political pressure which should not happen,” the BJP leader had said.
Governments of Maharashtra and Bihar have locked horns over the jurisdiction to investigate the Rajput case.
The Bihar government had recommended a CBI probe, days after Patna police registered a FIR against the late actor’s Mumbai-based girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty on the charge of abetment of suicide.
Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found hanging in his apartment in Bandra in Mumbai on June 14 this year.
