The lawyer has proposed an inquiry by an independent body like the CBI or SIT (Special Investigation Team) by a retired judge into this probe, states a report on Times Now. The report further goes on to state that the move was made on “interesting grounds,” keeping in mind that two state police have now been involved in the case.

Citing ‘problems in co-ordination’ between the Mumbai police and the Bihar police, and hence ‘in the best interest of justice’ to start the independent probe. The lawyer also states that as no part of the crime was committed in Bihar, but in Mumbai, and hence, just the fact that complainant Sushant’s father decided (to file the case in Patna) it does not conform jurisdiction in Patna.
He also stated that when Rhea was being questioned by the Mumbai police, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had tweeted that ‘Sushant had committed suicide owing to depression born out of professional rivalry’ and had even thanked the Mumbai police in his tweet. ‘It was an attempt to save Rhea’ he claims.
He also referred to the Aruchi Talwar case and said that by the time the investigation was taken over by the CBI, it was ‘too late to collect evidence’ and make a water-tight case. He claimed that ‘evidence had already been destroyed and tampered’ by then and the same had to be ‘avoided’ in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
He also claimed that the police have been ‘beating around the bush’ and that while the questioning has been on, ‘no FIR has been filed’.
Sushant’s father on Tuesday went public about his FIR filed against Rhea, alleging ‘abetment to suicide’, ‘cheating’ and many other claims.
A SIT of the Bihar Police has arrived in Mumbai and has already begun their investigations. The team has also been going through evidence collected by the Mumbai police in this case.
Rhea, on the other hand, has sought legal council and has moved the Supreme Court to have the FIR transferred to Mumbai.
