IPS officer Binoy Tiwari went to Mumbai to investigate Sushant’s death, had been forcibly kept in quarantine by Mumbai police
Bihar police directly leveled serious allegations against the Mumbai police in the investigations of the case of Sushant Singh Rajput, alleging that Binoy Tiwari, an IPS officer from Patna who went to Mumbai to investigate Sushant’s death, had been forcibly kept in quarantine.
A team of Bihar police led by Binoy has gone to Mumbai to investigate the case filed by Sushant’s father in Patna. They will look into whether Sushant was incited to commit suicide, said Bihar DGP Gupteswar Pandey.
However, Gupteswar Pandey alleged in a tweet that BMC officials forcibly placed Binoy Tiwari and his team in quarantine at 11:00 pm on Sunday after reaching Mumbai. Despite the request, he was not arranged to stay in the IPS mess. He is staying in a guest house in Goregaon.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has also expressed dissatisfaction over the incident, saying, “What was happened is not right.”
Sushant's family lawyer Bikash Singh had alleged a few days back that one of the Mumbai police was helping actress Rhea Chakraborty.
When Rhea went to the Supreme Court, she should have petitioned for a CBI probe into the incident. An FIR has been lodged in Patna. Now, Rhea has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking removal of the probe in Mumbai, he alleged, saying, “What greater proof is needed to understand that someone from the Mumbai police is helping her.”
