Mumbai: (news.kvartha.com 05.08.2020) The Center has agreed to the Bihar government's demand for a CBI probe into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The apex court asked the concerned parties to file a response within three days after the Center allowed the CBI to conduct an inquiry. It also directed the Maharashtra government to inform the court about all the developments and records of the Mumbai police investigation into Rajput's death.

Bihar police and Maharashtra police have been battling for the right to probe the death of the actor, who was found dead at his Mumbai residence on June 14. The Bihar government and social media have lashed out at Maharashtra Government for forcing 14 days quarantine to Vinay Tiwari, a senior police officer from Bihar who reached Mumbai for an inquiry following a complaint lodged by the actor's father KK Singh with the Bihar police.

A lawyer representing Sushant Singh Rajput's father argued in the Supreme Court that the Maharashtra police were destroying evidence in the case. Sushanth Singh's girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakravarthy's lawyer had earlier argued that the Bihar government could not hand over the case related to the actor's death to the CBI. The Center has ordered a CBI probe after considering the petition filed by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
