Lok Janshakti Party president Chirag Paswan said on Tuesday that he has urged Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to order a CBI probe into the alleged suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Paswan said he spoke to the Shiv Sena chief on Monday.
He tweeted that Thackeray told him that the Mumbai Police is questioning everyone whose name has cropped up in the case and that those found guilty will not be spared.
"I asked the chief minister to order a CBI probe. He assured me that the Mumbai Police is probing the case with all seriousness and he will order a CBI probe if it is felt that this is required," Paswan said.
मैंने मुख्यमंत्री जी ने सी॰बी॰आई॰ जाँच करवाने से आदेश देने को कहा। जिस पर उन्होंने विश्वास दिलाया की मुंबई पुलिस गम्भीरता से काम कर रही है और जब कभी भी यह महसूस होगा की सीबीआई जाँच की ज़रूरत है वह खुद ही जाँच के आदेश दे देंगे।— युवा बिहारी चिराग पासवान (@iChiragPaswan) July 28, 2020
