Sushant Singh Rajput’s death: inappropriate, Bihar CM says of IPS officer ‘forced’ quarantine in Mumbai | Hindi Movie News


Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday voiced strong disapproval of the “forced” quarantine of a Patna IPS officer hours after landing in Mumbai to head a Special Investigation Team investigating the death of the actor from Bollywood Sushant Singh Rajput. “What they did to him is inappropriate,” Kumar said when asked about Vinay Tiwari, SP City (East), who is in Mumbai to investigate a “suicide instigation” case.

He also said that the matter has been discussed with the authorities in Maharashtra by DGP Gupteshwar Pandey. “He (Pandey) will speak to the concerned authorities,” Kumar said.

When asked if he would speak to his Maharashtra counterpart, Uddhav Thackeray himself, the Prime Minister of Bihar said: “It is not a political matter. The issue in question is a legal obligation of the Bihar police. We will make every effort ” to accomplish the same. ”

However, he sidestepped questions about recommending a CBI investigation into the matter, the lawsuit of which has been raised by at least two of the deceased actor’s sisters.

Journalists approached the prime minister in a park where he tied a ‘rakhi’ around a tree on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan. He was flanked by key advisers, including his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi, a high-ranking BJP leader, who has been vociferous in accusing the Maharashtra government of not cooperating with the Bihar police team.

Rajput, 34, was found hanging from the ceiling of his Bandra residence in Mumbai on June 24. Bihar police became involved in the matter after Rajput’s father filed an FIR, more than a month after their son’s death, accusing actress Rhea Chakraborty and his family members of inciting suicide.

Bihar’s DGP Gupteshwar Pandey charged Sunday that Vinay Tiwari has been “forcibly quarantined” by the Mumbai civic authorities.

The DGP, who broke the news himself on his Twitter account after midnight, also shared a video of Tiwari, housed in a Maharashtra police facility with the quarantine seal in hand.

Pandey alleged that Tiwari was denied accommodation within the disorder of the IPS officer and forced to stay in a guest house in the Goregaon suburb. He also expressed frustration at the fact that due to “forced” quarantine by municipal authorities, Tiwari will not be able to carry out the investigation.
