As the chaos over Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case intensifies, the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) leaders in Maharashtra have alleged that the demand to transfer Sushant Singh Rajput death case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is politically motivated. 

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Nawab Malik has expressed his displeasure over the transfer of the SSR death case to CBI. He said that the incident has happened in Mumbai and the case can’t be transferred to CBI without the agreement of Maharashtra. 

Malik, who holds the Minority Affairs portfolio in the Uddhav Thackeray government, blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government for trying to create a tussle between Maharashtra and Bihar over this case. 

The NCP leader said that the centre was trying to disrupt the federal structure of the country in an effort to create conflict between two states. The tension between the MVA and Bihar government escalated after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) quarantined Patna SP Vinay Tiwari who visited Mumbai to investigate the SSR death case. 

However, Tiwari has been released from the quarantined on August 7 and has reported back to work today. After the centre approved the Bihar government’s request to transfer the case to the CBI, the central investigation agency has filed an FIR while re-registering the Patna Police FIR against actress Rhea Chakraborty.

However, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut alleged that the transfer of the Sushant Singh Rajput death case to CBI was scripted and asserted that Mumbai Police will continue with the investigation. 

Meanwhile, Media reports have suggested links between the SSR death case and Maharashtra Environment Minister Aaditya Thackeray. However, the young minister has clarified that he is no connection to the case, whatsoever. Aaditya, also the Yuva Sena chief, has alleged the opposition of playing dirty politics by unnecessarily dragging his name. 

Shiv Sena leader Anil Parab also came in Aaditya’s defence saying that efforts were being made to malign the image of the young minister. He also said that the case has been politicised and everyone is trying to take benefit out of it.
