Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case: The Supreme Court will again hear Rhea Chakraborty’s plea to transfer the FIR from Bihar Police to Mumbai Police today, August 13. On August 11, the second hearing of the case took place wherein the Supreme Court reserved its verdict after hearing arguments by Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family lawyer, the counsel representing Maharashtra Government and the Solicitor General of India.
The Supreme Court asked for brief written notes from all parties by Thursday, August 13. Bihar Government files a detailed reply before the Supreme Court in Rhea Chakraborty’s petition seeking transfer of FIR filed by Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh against her from Patna to Mumbai. Bihar Government in its reply claimed that Bihar Police has jurisdiction to probe the case.
The Bihar government’s submission says, “There is only one FIR in this case that has been filed by govt. They target the Mumbai police for not sharing any document and copy of the investigation, post-mortem report. Mr. Vinay Tiwari, IPS, who reached Mumbai from Bihar, was quarantined so that he should not investigate the matter.
On the other hand, Rhea’s team has also submitted their notes to the top court and they claimed that Bihar Govt. acted outside the jurisdiction. Team Rhea’s submission says, “Bihar Govt can’t transfer probe to the CBI”. There is a 5-page submission given to the SC.
