Mumbai: Maharashtra Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Aslam Shaikh, on Tuesday said that those commenting on the Sushant Singh Rajput case are ones who want their names to appear in the media or those who have no work. Expressing confidence in the work done by Mumbai Police, Shaikh said that the case could be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) if the centre feels the need for a further probe.
“Mumbai Police has done a proper investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Still, if the centre feels that there should be further investigation by CBI then they should do it,” Shaikh said.
Shaikh further alleged that some people are jumping into the matter so that their names appear in the media. “Some of them are not going for shoots these days and sitting at home, so they want to get into controversies,” he further claimed.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar backs Mumbai Police
It may be noted that the NCP and Shiv Sena have repeatedly backed the Mumbai Police in their probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. Most recently, NCP chief Sharad Pawar had thrown his weight behind the Mumbai Police and said that he has 100 per cent faith in them. “If someone still wants a probe by CBI or any other agency, then there is no reason to oppose it,” Pawar had further said.
As reported by Times Now, many, including BJP MP Subramanian Swamy have been seeking a CBI probe into the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
