On Thursday, 16 July, actor Rhea Chakraborty had requested Home Minister Amit Shah to initiate a CBI probe into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
However, speaking to mid-day, Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh said there is no need for a CBI intervention.
Deshmukh said that the Mumbai Police is conducting a thorough investigation into the case and they do not suspect any foul play.
“I have read all the tweets and I am informed of the campaign for a CBI inquiry. However, I don’t think there’s any need for the CBI here. The Mumbai police is very competent when it comes to handling such cases and they are looking at every possible angle, including professional rivalry. As of now, no foul play has come to the fore. All the details will be shared once the investigation is complete”, he added.
Mumbai Cyber branch officials also told the publication that they had not received any written complaint from Rhea.
However, they added that they will take her social media post into account and investigate the matter. This was in response to Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea’s Instagram post
