Uddhav on Sushant death: don't make it Maharashtra vs Bihar issue

Aug 01, 2020 10:17 IST

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Friday said he condemned attempts to question the efficiency of the Mumbai police in handling the probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. 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. Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Fadnavis earlier said, there is a "huge public sentiment" about handing over the case to the CBI, but the Uddhav Thackeray-led government in the state has been reluctant to do so. Thackeray said if anyone has any proof related to the case, he/she can bring it to the Mumbai police, adding his govt will interrogate and punish the guilty. He told Fadnavis to not use the case as a Maharashtra versus Bihar issue. The Mumbai police have recorded statements of over 40 people, including Bollywood personalities including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, film critic Rajeev Masand, actress Sanjana Sanghi, the actor's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, casting director Shanoo Sharma, filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra, and Aditya Chopra. 34-year-old Sushant was found hanging at his apartment in Bandra on June 14. A Bihar police team is probing a separate 'abetment to suicide' case against Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty on the basis of a complaint filed by the late actor's father in Patna.
