The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday told the Supreme Court that Patna Police has no jurisdiction in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case and their petition to investigate the case is fit to be dismissed for many reasons. While submitting its submission to the apex court, the central investigation agency urged the SC to allow CBI and ED to continue their probe. 

As CBI strongly opposed the petition filed by Bihar seeking the direction of the apex court to investigate the SSR death case, the central investigation agency also requested the Supreme Court to allow Enforcement Directorate (ED) to continue their investigation into the financial angle in the case. 

The CBI in its reply told the apex court that the main plea taken in the petition and argued is that most of the transactions took place in Mumbai and Bihar police have no jurisdiction to probe the case. 

Meanwhile, the Bihar government also submitted to the Supreme Court that Mumbai Police neither registered an FIR nor did it extend any support to Parna Police for investigating the Sushant Singh Rajput case. In the written submission, the Bihar Police told the Supreme Court that Mumbai Police “detained” Vinay Tiwari - the investigating officer - in the name of quarantine. 

Earlier, Actress Rhea Chakraborty had filed a petition seeking the transfer of FIR registered in Patna to Mumbai. Chakraborty has been named in an FIR filed by Sushant’s father KK Singh for abetment of suicide. 

The decision to hand over the Sushant case to the CBI has been taken on the recommendation of Bihar Police and it has been done without the state’s jurisdiction in the case, Chakraborty’s counsel told the SC. 

The apex court had reserved the order on Chakraborty’s plea on August 11 and had asked the concerned parties to file their submissions by Thursday.
