Several politicians as well as celebrities have called for a CBI probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Union Home Minister Amit Shah has now forwarded a letter from former Bihar MP Pappu Yadav seeking CBI inquiry to the concerned ministry.
Yadav has shared the picture of Shah's response to his letter which stated that the Home Ministry has received his letter and that the concerned ministry will further look into it.

Pappu Yadav was one among many who urged for a CBI enquiry into Sushant's death by suicide. The 'Dil Bechara' actor's sudden demise re-ignited the debate of 'nepotism' with many saying that 'outsider' treatment meted out to Sushant is to be blamed for his suicide.
Hashtags like #WhyDelayInCBIForSSR, #PMModiCBIForSSR, #CBIMustForSushant, #CBIForSonOfBihar have been trending almost every other day on Twitter.

Last month, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey had written to Union Home Minister Amit Shah demanding a probe into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput by a Special Investigation Team comprising officers from the CBI, NIA, ED and the Income Tax department.
Dubey said a "legal framework" is immediately required to "regulate the day-to-day affairs" of the film industry and to control various "illegal activities" being continued in one form or the other.
