Mumbai Police wasn't allowed to investigate in right direction: BJP leader Ashish Shelar

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ashish Shelar raised questions over Mumbai Police’s investigation in the Sushant Singh death case. He also accused the Maharashtra government of causing hindrance in the investigation. 

While welcoming the Supreme Court’s decision to transfer the SSR death case to CBI, Shelar said that the state government has tried to hide until now. “Cooperate further, otherwise the state government will face public outrage,” he warned. 

"We welcome the decision of the Supreme Court. From the very beginning, we have been saying that the manner in which the Mumbai Police is taking this investigation in the wrong direction, who is behind it?” Shelar asked. 

Alleging that the Mumbai police was not allowed to investigate properly, the BJP leader said that the concerned authorities including state government need to issue clarifications. 

Shelar also questioned that when there was a strict lockdown in Mumbai for two months, how was a party organised at Sushant’s place? “It is clear that some person sitting in the state government is playing hide and seek and as a result Mumbai police are suffering,” he said. 

The BJP has been trying to corner the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) asking for clarification on who it was trying to save from the investigation. Kirit Somaiya has even asked for Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh’s resignation. 

The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the Bihar government’s order to transfer the SSR death case to CBI. The bench found no fault in the FIR registered in Bihar against actress Rhea Chakraborty and her family members. 

The court said that Bihar Police had jurisdiction to register FIR at the complaint of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father. A single bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy held the transfer of the case to CBI valid.
