“CBI will be responsible to probe not only Patna FIR but any FIR linked to Rajput’s death case,” says Supreme court.
SC asks Mumbai Police to provide all data collected so far in the case of CBI. SC ensured that there was no ambiguity about CBI being the sole authority to investigate the mystery behind Rajput’s suicidal death. No other state police could interfere with it.
The court further noted that since the Mumbai police had recorded only an accidental death statement for Rajput’s death, it had restricted investigation powers.
