5 Reasons Why Supreme Court Had To Choose Third Party, CBI, To Crack Sushant Death Case Rather Than Mumbai Or Patna Police

Here are 5 reasons why SC decided to transfer SSR’s case to CBI from Mumbai Police.

Yesterday, Supreme Court ordered the CBI into Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicidal death case and it was big news bringing cheer to the late actor’s family and fans who always give extra miles to seek justice for the deceased. For many people, this was a historic verdict from SC as it will keep alive the hope that truth will win and Sushant can rest in peace.

Mumbai Police has been requested to hand over all evidence that they have collected so far to the Central Bureau of Investigation. Here are 5 reasons why SC decided to transfer SSR’s case to CBI from Mumbai.

Maharashtra Police has yet to investigate

The first and foremost reason why the Supreme Court wanted to move the case to CBI. Mumbai Police was probing into the alleged suicide in a limited scope as they haven’t filed an FIR in the case. When the actor was found dead at home on 14 June, Mumbai cops immediately said it was a suicide.

Maharashtra Police
Maharashtra Police hasn't investigated yet just concluded the case as a normal suicide

After the actor’s father lodged an FIR in Patna, Bihar police officer arrived in Mumbai to investigate his death by suicide. However, the advocate general for the Bihar government, Lalit Kishor reported that Mumbai cops haven’t been cooperating with them in cracking the case.

Earlier, the Bihar government told the SC that Maharashtra neither registered an FIR on the actor’s death nor extended the support to Patna Police because of political pressure.

Patna police do have jurisdiction to submit an FIR but Rhea Chakraborty disproves it

Supreme Court dismisses the argument of Rhea saying “Bihar cops have no jurisdiction” when Bihar Police had filed an FIR based on the complaint of Sushant’s father.

Rhea affirmed that the investigations in Bihar are illegal and these proceedings can’t be transferred to the CBI. She further added,

"Otherwise, the present transfer from Bihar Police to CBI as is done is totally without jurisdiction and contrary to law".

Conflict does occur between 2 state governments

In the 35-page judgment, the SC says that the legitimacy of investigation has come under a cloud because governments of Bihar and Maharashtra are both making

“acrimonious allegations of political interference.”

Two state governments have different points of view

Apparently, in order to the unwanted trouble in investigating, transferring the case to CBI is totally sensible.

SC wants to reduce the uncertainty of parallel investigations

The fact is that CBI has registered the case at the behest of the Bihar government. Even though the investigation is entirely under the responsibilities of CBI, questions are rife whether Mumbai Police will conduct parallel investigations.

Rhea Chakraborty And Sushant Sister
Truth will win

While SC has asked MP to submit all documents and reports to CBI, the Maharashtra government has still assured that its police force will team up with CBI.

Need an impartial, competent and fair investigation

Obviously, now two states are standing on two sides supporting Rhea Chakraborty and Sushant’s family respectively. Therefore, letting CBI carry out the case is totally a wise decision from SC.
