Riya Chakraborty’s plea in the Sushant Singh Rajput case was heard in the Supreme Court on Thursday. The apex court had sought answers from all the parties. Apart from Bihar Police and Riya Chakraborty, the CBI also filed its reply. The investigating agency said that the investigation into the case being carried out by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate should continue.
Sushant’s father has registered an FIR against Riya in Patna, which was also visited by the Bihar Police in Mumbai. Riya has filed a petition in the Supreme Court to transfer this FIR from Patna to Mumbai. The petition claimed that the investigation in Patna could be affected. Also, the allegations that have been talked about in the police report, the transactions have taken place in Mumbai. A hearing is going on in the Supreme Court on this. Also, CBI has to give a decision on whether to investigate the matter or not.
According to ANI, CBI filed its reply on Thursday. The CBI has told the court that the court should allow the CBI and ED to continue the investigation. At the same time, it has been argued in the main petition that all the transactions have taken place in Mumbai, hence the Patna Police has no jurisdiction to investigate. In its reply, the CBI said that the petition was not correct and fit to be dismissed for several reasons.
Main plea taken in the petition & argued is that most of the transactions took place in Mumbai and accordingly Patna Police has no jurisdiction to investigate the matter, CBI says in its reply filed before SC.
