Sushant Singh Rajput’s father demands a CBI probe into his son’s suicide case,
Bihar chief minister
Nitish Kumar told a TV news channel on Saturday. This came even as
Bihar deputy CM Sushil Modi said the Uddhav Thackeray government in Maharashtra was under pressure from the “Congress-funded Bollywood mafia”, and this was the reason for it being hell- bent on saving all elements connected with the case.
Nitish said the
Maharashtra police should co-operate with Bihar police in the investigation. “It is the legal duty and role of Bihar police, as an FIR has been filed in Patna,” he said, adding there was no clash between the police of the two states.
But his deputy, spoke in a confrontational tone. In a scathing attack, Sushil Modi asked, “What will the Congress show to the people of Bihar?” In a series of tweets in Hindi, he vented his anger on the Shiv Sena-led coalition government in Maharashtra for creating hurdles for the visiting Bihar police team investigating the 34-year-old actor’s death.
Meanwhile, Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti made an appeal to PM
Narendra Modi demanding justice for her brother who died last month.
Kirti posted a brief note on social media, urging the PM to ensure that there was no tampering with evidence. “We are from a very simple family. My brother had no Godfather when he was in Bollywood nor do we have anyone right now,” she wrote.
