The single judge bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy has pronounced the verdict in favour of CBI probe in Sushant’s case at 11 am today.

Justice Roy had earlier held two hearings into Rhea Chakraborty’s plea seeking transfer of the case from Patna to Mumbai. Rhea had been named in the FIR in the Sushant case lodged by Sushant’s father KK Singh in Patna, post which a Bihar police team had arrived in Mumbai to investigate, though they were finally stymied by the Mumbai Police.
The Mumbai police has been told to co-operate in the investigation.

The apex court had,in its last hearing reserved the decision and asked all the parties to submit their respective submissions in the case.

Sushant’s family has accused Rhea Chakraborty of siphoning off funds to the tune of Rs 15 crore from Sushant’s accounts before his death. She had moved out of their live-in relationship just a week before he died under suspicious circumstances in what was called suicide from the state though numerous inconsistencies have since emerged.

Following decision by the apex court Niraj Singh Babloo, Bihar BJP MLA and relative of Sushant has thanked the court for its decision on behalf of whole family.
