The investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput case will now be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Union of India, has stated that the Centre has accepted Bihar government's request for CBI enquiry into the actor's suicide case. SG Tushar Mehta has also told the Supreme Court that notification for the CBI investigation is expected to be out by the end of the day on Wednesday. Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi representing the Bihar government has welcomed the decision. 

On Tuesday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar also rallied for a CBI probe in Sushant's case after Bihar DGP spoke to the late actor's father KK Singh. Nitish Kumar had addressed the media and said, "The DGP spoke to #SushantSinghRajput's father this morning and he gave consent for CBI inquiry. So now, we are recommending CBI probe in the matter."

Rhea Chakraboty's lawyer Satish Maneshinde was quick to react to Nitish Kumar's statement. He told ANI on Tuesday, "There can't be transfer of a case which had no legal basis for Bihar to get involved. At most, it would be a 'Zero FIR' transferable to Mumbai Police. Transfer of a case, on which they had no jurisdiction, to CBI has no legal sanctity." 

The latest development is set to come as a big relief for the actor's family, fans and celebrities who have been demanding for a CBI probe into the matter since the actor's tragic demise. From Kangana Ranaut and Shekhar Suman to Rhea herself demanding a CBI enquiry, looks like the case will now be completely undertaken by the Central Bureau of Investigation.

Don't get your hopes high. This is just another department but people are still the same. Everybody is on discounted sale in india, mafia will buy CBI too. Mafia already paid Modi so there will be pressure on CBI to pretend they are working on the case but in reality they will be kept away from every evidence. Oh wait, there's no evidence because its already destroyed by the baku mumbai police. May raid all those police officers who were involved in the initial investigation

CBI should look into everything, not just his death, look into how he got there in the first place, go back and track the events leading to his demise. Whoever manipulated and used him should be punished.
