Bengaluru: The chorus for a CBI investigation into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput indeed grows. The latest to jump into the bandwagon is none other than Mayawati, the former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. 

The BSP chief, interestingly, has also exposed Congress leaders from both Maharashtra and Bihar. 

She said on her twitter account: "It seems that the real purpose of Congress leaders of Maharashtra and Bihar is to fulfill their political interests first and to provide justice to the victim's family later - this is not at all appropriate. Maharashtra's government should be serious,"


Earlier, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy too had sought a CBI probe. He had said, "The way things are developing and things are coming out, it is inevitable that CBI inquiry will take place, in case it is not done, I will go to Court, I am just waiting for Mumbai Police to do its job."

But Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh has said the Mumbai police would probe the issue and there was ‘no question’ of transferring the case to the CBI. 

Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty has moved the Supreme Court seeking the case to be shifted to Mumbai from Patna. Following this, Sushant's family's lawyer has filed a caveat on Thursday morning that no decision should be taken without hearing them first, Republic TV reported. 

Sushant Singh Rajput's father had filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty. 


The actor, aged 34, was found hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14.

Rajput's suspected death by suicide has also triggered a debate on alleged nepotism and favouritism in the Hindi film industry. Several top production houses had allegedly boycotted the Patna-born actor, causing him distress and compelling him to end his life.
