After the Supreme Court dismissed Rhea Chakraborty’s plea to transfer the case from Patna to Mumbai, her lawyer Satish Maneshinde released a statement.
It said, “The Hon’ble Supreme Court after examining the facts and circumstances of the case and the report of the Mumbai police has observed that it will be the desired justice as Rhea herself called for a CBI investigation. The Hon’ble Supreme Court also observed that due to the allegations made by the two states of political interference against each other, it would be in the interest of justice to hand over the case to the CBI.”
Further adding, “Since the Court has Transferred the investigation to CBI invoking its powers under Article 142 of the Constitution of India, she will appear and face the investigation by the CBI as she has done earlier with the Mumbai Police and the Enforcement Directorate. Rhea maintains that the Truth will remain the same whichever agency investigates the case.”
The Supreme Court’s order said earlier, “Sushant Singh Rajput was a talented actor and died well before his full potential could be realised. Many are keenly awaiting the outcome of the probe so speculations can be put to rest. Therefore a fair, competent, impartial investigation is need of the hour.”
The CBI team will be arriving in Mumbai on Thursday to commence its investigation.
