The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its order on Rhea Chakraborty’s plea for transfer of FIR in Sushant Singh Rajput death case from Bihar to Mumbai.
After day-long marathon arguments, the apex court asked all parties to submit written notes by Thursday.
Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi appeared on behalf of the Maharashtra government.
The Maharashtra government has favoured Rhea’s contention that the matter should be investigated by Maharashtra government and not Bihar government since the incident occurred in Mumbai and not Bihar.
However, the Bihar government said that since the probe is done by the CBI, Rhea’s plea does not hold any ground.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appearing for CBI, said CBI had already taken a decision that it would accede to the request of Bihar Government. “The exercise that Mumbai police is undergoing is without an FIR. No report of the inquest has been filed before the district or sub divisional magistrate. A basic report on apparent causes of death showing bruises, marks, wounds, or fractures should be before Magistrate”, he said.
