The IPS officer probing Sushant Singh Rajput’s “abetment to suicide” case, Vinay Tiwari, who had reached Mumbai on Sunday has been sent to quarantine, alleges Bihar’s director-general (DGP) of police Gupteshwar Pandey. The blame game between Bihar and Mumbai Police has been continuing from the last couple of days ever since SSR’s father had filed a case against actor Rhea Chakravorty.
“IPS officer Vinay Tiwari reached Mumbai today from Patna on official duty to lead the police team there but he has been forcibly quarantined by BMC officials at 11 PM today,” tweeted Pandey.
However, the BMC officials said that Tiwari has been quarantined as per the present guidelines for domestic arrivals at the Mumbai airport. Pandey, earlier said the case should not be turned into an ego battle of Bihar police vs Mumbai police.
In an interview on Saturday, to a television channel, Pandey said that people’s sentiments should be respected, and there is definitely some angle to the case of the young actor’s death. “I am saying a simple thing that one should look at the sentiments of the country’s people. People say that he was a vibrant, enthusiastic, and successful young man. They feel there is some kind of mystery if a man who had money and fame hangs himself.”
Mumbai Police are also probing the death case and have so far questioned nearly 40 people in this connection. They include people from Rajput’s family, his cook, and people from the film fraternity—Mahesh Bhatt and Aditya Chopra, film critic Rajeev Masand, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Meanwhile, Rhea Chakravorty has also filed a petition in the Supreme Court to transfer the case from Bihar to Mumbai.
