August 1, 2020: Responding to the case related to Sushant Singh Rajput's death, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Friday spoke for the first time and stated that Mumbai Police is not 'ineffective.' 

Exuding confidence on the probe done by Mumbai Police into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, he said that if people have evidence then they can bring it to the Police, instead of seeking transfer of the case to other agencies.

He said people must trust the probe into the high-profile case being conducted by the Mumbai police.

"The state police and Mumbai police are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. They are COVID warriors and not to trust them is an insult to them," he said.

"I would like to tell Rajput's fans to trust the Mumbai police and give whatever information they have to them. You can criticise if the case is not taken to its logical conclusion," he said.

Thackeray lashed out at Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis, saying the BJP politician had doubted the credibility of the Mumbai police in handling the case despite being a chief minister for five years. 

Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14. A Bihar police team is probing a separate ''abetment to suicide'' case on the basis of a complaint filed by the late actor's father in Patna.
