Guwahati News Desk: The Maharashtra Congress on Thursday questioned CBI’s silence over the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, a year after it took over the probe into the case.
Maharashtra’s Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant tweeted, “It’s been a year today since CBI took over investigation of unfortunate death of Sushant Singh Rajput from Bihar police. Registration of FIR by Bihar police was against article 177 of CRPC. Supreme court also had expressed satisfaction in the overall investigation by Mumbai Police.”
The party alleged in a tweet, “CBI is maintaining deliberate silence. This mockery of investigation by national investigation agencies is an apt example of how these agencies are being used by Modi government for their political agenda.”
In another tweet, the spokesperson claimed that Gupteshwar Pandey (former Bihar DGP) was being used to further the political agenda of the BJP, which was to “malign” the image of the Mumbai police and “destabilise” the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra.
Sawant added, “BJP stooped to the lowest possible level when they openly gave murder, rape angles and used Sushant’s death in Bihar elections as well.”
He further said, “Some pliable channels were asked to keep peddling murder theories. BJP leaders kept defaming Maharashtra. CBI and other agencies kept leaking fake info. Thousands of fake twitter, FB and YouTube accounts were created by BJP IT cell.”
Regarding the alleged murder case of bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who was 34-years old at the time, was found hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in Mumbai’s Bandra area on 14th June, 2020. This particular case was undertaken by the CBI in August last year.
