Mumbai : NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Thursday said the Maharashtra government will fully cooperate with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for probe in the case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Pawar said he was sure that the Maha Vikas Aghadi government will respect the Supreme Court’s order upholding transfer of Patna Police’s FIR in the case to the CBI.
Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14.
The NCP is a constituent of the Maha Vikas Aghadi and party leader Anil Deshmukh holds the Home portfolio.
Pawar also said he was hopeful that the investigation in the actor’s death will not be carried on the way it happened in rationalist Narendra Dabholkars murder case, which has remained unresolved.
Dabholkar, a well-known anti-superstition activist, was shot dead on August 20, 2013, in Pune.
“I am sure the Maharashtra Govt will respect the judgement of the Supreme Court to handover Sushant Singh Rajputs case to the CBI and fully cooperate in the investigation process,” Pawar tweeted.
“I hope the investigation will not be carried on, as was done with Dr Narendra Dabholkars murder case also under investigation by the #CBI which commenced in 2014 and remains unresolved, the former Union minister said.
