The moment we all have been waiting for is finally here. Supreme Court rejected Rhea Chakraborty’s petition to transfer the case from Bihar police to Mumbai Police. The apex court has ordered CBI to take over the investigation related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. It has also asked Mumbai Police to hand over all the evidence it has collected till now to the agency. While pronouncing the verdict, the bench said that if any other case is registered regarding Sushant’s death, then the matter will be looked into by CBI only.
Supreme Court said that the FIR registered with the Bihar Police based on the complaint filed by KK Singh is correct, and their request to transfer the case to CBI is lawful. The bench also said, “fair, competent and impartial probe is the need of the hour to stop speculation.“
On hearing the verdict, Sushant Singh’s sister Shweta said in a series of tweets,
“There we go!! Finally!! CBI for SSR!! #CBITakesOver.
