Sushant Singh Rajput Case: Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray backs Mumbai Cops: Bring proof, will punish guilty
Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death investigation took a turn when Bihar Police started probing the case after an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and 5 others in Patna by the late star’s father. The FIR levelled 16 allegations against Rhea and others under various sections of IPC including misappropriation of funds, abetment and others. Post this, several questions were raised on Mumbai Police’s angle of investigation and Sushant’a family lawyer also claimed the same. Now, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray has come forth to back Mumbai Police.
As per ANI, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray said that the Mumbai Police is not insufficient and that if anyone has any proof they can bring those to them for probing. He assured that on the basis of investigation, Mumbai Police will probe and punish the guilty. Further, the Maharashtra CM also mentioned that Sushant’s death case should not be used as a way to create issues between Mumbai and Bihar. He even said not to get politics in the matter and called it ‘deplorable.’
The Maharashtra CM said, “Mumbai Police is not inefficient.If anyone has any evidence they can bring it to us & we will interrogate & punish the guilty. Please don't use this case as an excuse to create friction between Maharashtra & Bihar. Bringing politics in the case is the most deplorable thing to do.” Further talking about the opposition, he said that they should understand that the Mumbai Police has done their duty always. He said, “Devendra Fadnavis should understand that it is the same police whom he has worked with in the last five years. It is the same police that have given so many sacrifices during the fight with Corona. I would like to condemn those who are raising questions over the efficiency of the police. The Mumbai Police is not inefficient.”
