The Supreme Court pronounced its verdict on Rhea Chakraborty’s petition to transfer investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death from Patna to Mumbai. The actress filed the plea after the late actor's father KK Singh filed an FIR in Patna accusing the actress of cheating and abetment of the actor's suicide. The top court had reserved the verdict on the case on August 11. Justice Hrishikesh Roy pronounced the judgment at 11 am today, August 19. The top court has now directed to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate the death. 

The verdict has refused Maharashtra's option to challenge the order. The Mumbai Police have been asked to cooperate with the CBI investigation. The top court has asked Mumbai Police to hand over the evidence collected with regard to the case to CBI. The court has also directed CBI to look into any cases registered in the future with relation to Sushant's death. 

SC's verdict comes weeks after Rhea filed a petition which said the Bihar Police have no jurisdiction in the death probe. She also claimed that the actor's death was being used for political gains. Arguing for Sushant's family, senior advocate Vikas Singh submitted in court that Rhea "distanced his family from him." Rhea's counsel Shyam Divan informed the top court that the Maharashtra Government filed an affidavit through the Investigating Officer and said that Rhea was in love with the late actor. It was added Rhea suffered severe trauma following his untimely death. 

Rhea and her family have been under the scanner after Singh accused the actress of illegally transferring Rs 15 crore from the actor's bank account. Rhea has denied the allegations. On Tuesday, Sushant's father was quizzed by ED about the actor's finances.

Rhea, the road to riches -- especially one that is paved by someone else's sweat and literally blood and your evil intentions -- is made of hell. Welcome to hell! You worked hard for it and you deserve every bit of it. I hope you enjoy what is in store for you. The world will take pleasure in watching your downfall.

Still can't come to terms that Sushanth is gone forever and We will never see him again.

I believe sushant had severe depression bipolar. Refused the medication. Rhea left and blocked him and she also told him she will make his illness public. Due to that fear he committed suicide. Rhea will still go to jail. That is my view.

Let’s take a moment to spread the awareness today. If you friendA or family members or relatives or neighbours living alone, be there for them, call them.. because you never know what they are going through.... | | | | No I am not talking about mental health. I am just saying they might have a girlfriend like Rhea who is ruining their life thinking they are alone. P.s- Sushant wasn’t depressed and he didn’t commit suicide. He was murdered. So stop linking mental health issues with this case.
