August 5, 2020: The investigation regarding Sushant Singh Rajput death case has been handed over to CBI, the Centre told Supreme Court on Wednesday.

The transfer of investigation to the Supreme Court was recommended by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday evening. The recommendation has been accepted by the Centre and investigation regarding the Sushant Singh Rajput death case has been transferred to CBI.

A notification issued by Bihar Government read, “The Governor of Bihar is pleased to accord his consent to exercise of powers and jurisdiction to the whole of Bihar and other places related to the case to the members of Delhi Special Police Establishment to Investigative and enquire into the case related to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.”

The governor of Bihar, Phagu Chauhan, had also consented to a CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) probe into Sushant Singh Rajput's death case on Tuesday evening.

He also suggested that the CBI should further investigate, supervise and inquire into the case registered in Patna by Sushant Singh Rajput's father KK Singh.

Earlier this month, an FIR was registered against Rhea Chakraborty on the basis of a complaint filed by Sushant Singh Rajput's father, KK Singh. In his complaint, he had alleged that Rhea had instigated Sushant Singh Rajput to commit suicide.

Rhea, on the other hand, moved Supreme Court and requested an urgent hearing of her plea. The plea was supposed to be heard in the SC today. The plea, however, might not survive.

Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput's father recently met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. He also released a video saying his family informed Mumbai Police on February 25 that Sushant's life was in danger. They also released WhatsApp chats sent to Mumbai Police informing that the actor's life was in danger.
