Bihar Police has no jurisdiction in case hence we approached SC, says Rhea's lawyer
Bihar Police has no jurisdiction to investigate in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case legally and otherwise, hence actor Rhea Chakraborty approached the Supreme Court and filed a Transfer Petition, her lawyer Satish Maneshinde said.
"Rhea Chakraborty has always been living in Mumbai. She was in Mumbai on 14th June 2020. She was not allowed to attend the funeral of Sushant Singh as her name was struck off from the list of 20," Maneshinde said. - ANI

We will question them (Mumbai Police) as to why such leads are hushed up," the DGP told the media. - IANS

Mumbai Police is buying time to ensure that the evidence gets destroyed: Sushant's family lawyer
"I don't think any state govt would have quarantined an enforcement officer. Quarantining of a police officer clearly means they want to disable or obstruct the investigation by Patna police.

So we decided that this matter should be given to CBI and Nitish Kumar had earlier promised that if the father wants a CBI probe, it will be handed it over to CBI." - Vikas Singh
