The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) finally took over Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case after the Supreme Court’s verdict on Wednesday.
The Supreme Court has ordered a CBI investigation. The court also said that the FIR registered in Bihar based on the complaint filed by Sushant Singh’s father was correct. Actor Rhea Chakraborty had asked the high court to transfer the First Information Report or FIR from Patna to Mumbai.

Sushant’s girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, was booked for instigation of suicide, robbery, and deception, among others, by the father of the late actor KK Singh in Patna, Bihar.
