Over two weeks after Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death, the demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe to investigate his death is now gaining momentum on social media.
On Sunday, his fans took to Twitter and requested PM Narendra Modi to appoint CBI to probe the case. Following this, #PMModiCBIForSSR started trending on Twitter.
Earlier, Sushant's cousin Neeraj Kumar Singh alias Bablu, who is a former MLA from Chatapur in Bihar, told IANS that the matter should be investigated by the CBI. He added that Sushant's father K.K. Singh also wants a CBI probe in the case.
In June, during the interaction with the media, Bihar Janadhikar Party leader Pappu Yadav also demanded a CBI probe and requested Bihar CM Nitish Kumar to intervene for speedy investigation in the actor's case.
Demand for the CBI enquiry started coming in after the actor's death. Now as the days are passing without any development in this regard, his fans are requesting PM Modi to appoint CBI for probing the matter.

Yesterday, PTI reported that Mumbai Police have sent the cloth, allegedly used by the actor to hang himself, to a forensic lab for 'tensile test'.
Meanwhile, the Bandra police have summoned film director Sanjay Leela Bhansali to record his statement in connection with the case on July 6, the official said. Bhansali had offered films to Rajput but could not work with him apparently due to date issues.
Rajput (34) was found hanging at his suburban Bandra residence on June 14. According to the investigators, the actor ended his life by hanging himself from the ceiling using a green coloured nightgown made of cotton.
