Sushant Singh Rajput case: Home Minister Anil Deshmukh denies CBI inquiry says ‘Mumbai Police is Enough’
Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has rejected CBI inquiry in Sushant Singh Rajput's case stating that the Mumbai Police is competent enough to handle it.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden demise left the country in a state of shock and disbelief. Friends and family of the actor can still not understand why he took such a drastic step. Despite a strong social media campaign by powerful personalities from Bollywood and in politics the Maharastra government has now come out to deny CBI inquiry in Sushant Singh’s case. Home Minister Anil Deshmukh in his conversation with Mid-day said that the Mumbai Police is competent enough to handle Sushant Singh’s case, therefore no request for a CBI inquiry is being considered in the late actor’s suicide case.
In his interview with Mid-Day, HM Anil Deshmukh said: “I have the tweets and the campaign. But I don’t think a CBI probe is required. The Mumbai Police are competent enough to handle such cases and they are investigating every aspect of the case including professional rivalry. As of now, we do not see any foul play. Details of the investigation will be shared once it is completed.”
Multiple political personalities including former Bihar MP Pappu Yadav, actors Shekhar Suman, Roopa Ganguly, and Former BJP MP Subramaniam Swamy have been spearheading a campaign for a CBI inquiry in Sushant Singh’s case.
Recently Rhea Chakraborty, Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend, broke her silence on social media and urged Home Minister Amit Shah for a CBI inquiry in the case. Her post on Instagram read, “Respected @amitshahofficial sir, I’m Sushant Singh Rajputs girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, it is now over a month since his sudden demise. I have complete faith in the government, however, in the interest of justice, I request you with folded hands to initiate a CBI inquiry into this matter. I only want to understand what pressures prompted Sushant to take this step.
