Amid a raging controversy over a Patna police team’s go to to Mumbai to probe the demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, a Shiv Sena MP has accused the Bihar police of performing on the behest of the BJP.
“People can understand what’s going on. Why did Bihar Police travel in BMW? They travelled in Jaguar. Whose vehicles were those? The BMW belonged to a BJP office-bearer. If Bihar Police travels in it, you can understand the politics,” ANI quoted Shiv Sena’s Lok Sabha MP Arvind Sawant as saying.
The Patna police team has drawn consideration to itself travelling in luxury vehicles throughout its probe in Mumbai.
The Maharashtra authorities has stated it has no plans of handing over the probe to the CBI because the opposition BJP has been demanding.
“The Mumbai Police are probing into the matter in a very professional manner,” Maharashtra house minister Anil Deshmuklh instructed reporters in Mumbai.
Earlier Monday, Mumbai Police commissioner Param Bir Singh stated Rajput’s household didn’t complain about any lapse in the investigation being carried by Mumbai Police into his demise in June.
Former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis questioned why the Patna police team was being obstructed from doing its obligation.
He notably criticized the Maharashtra authorities for sending a Bihar police officer into quarantine on his arrival in Mumbai.
