Rhea Chakraborty was the one who on July 16 had asked for a CBI enquiry in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
But to her surpirse after CBI has filed an FIR against her
Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde In a statement said , “The Bihar Government transferred a case with which it had NO Jurisdiction to investigate, to CBI instead of The Mumbai Police, which is the legal position.”
He further added, “The SC has directed all parties to file their replies and Mumbai Police is directed to place the report of investigations.
Pending the said proceedings the CBI has registered and continued the illegality which was perpetrated at the hands of Bihar Police.
CBI being a premier investigative agency in the country should desist from taking any further steps pending the SC proceedings.
Apart from the same unless the Maharashtra Government consents to CBI investigating the case, it would be illegal and beyond any known legal principles, affecting the Federal Structure of the Nation.”
