New Delhi: The Bihar government in its written submission to the Supreme Court on Thursday said that on account of political pressure in Maharashtra, neither an FIR was lodged nor any cooperation was provided to Bihar Police in the case in connection with the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
The Supreme Court has reserved the order on the plea of main accused Rhea Chakraborty seeking transfer of the case registered in Patna to Mumbai. The Bihar government had urged the apex court to reject the transfer petition filed by Rhea. “It deserves to be rejected/disposed of by the orders of this court.”
On Tuesday, the apex court reserved the order and asked all the parties in the case to file their written submissions.
“It is apparent that it is on account of political pressure in the State of Maharashtra that neither the FIR has been registered by the Mumbai Police nor did they extend any cooperation to Bihar Police in discharging their obligation to conduct investigation expeditiously,” said the Bihar government in its submissions before the top court.
Senior advocate Maninder Singh, representing the Bihar government, had argued on similar lines.
