Recently, a four-member team has come from Patna to investigate people close to Sushant Singh Rajput in connection to his death. They have already spoken to his bank manager, former cook, sister, and former girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande. Meanwhile, Mumbai Police is parallelly investigating the case and more than 30 people have been interrogated.
While the investigation for the same has been a totally turbulent ride for Mumbai Police, the cops are trying their best to solve the case. Several allegations have been hurled and many have questioned the cops’ intentions. Now, Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray has reacted to the same and assure the state saying, “We will interrogate and punish the guilty.”
For the first time, CM Uddhav Thackeray addressed the topic as his reaction comes after former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis tweeted about Sushant’s case while hitting at the state government.
The Chief Minister spoke at an event organized by a Marathi news channel and reacted to the criticism that the Mumbai Police has been receiving. He stated that the Mumbai Police is not inefficient.
PTI quoted Thackeray saying, “The opposition can even bring Interpol or followers of the Namaste Trump event into the inquiry. Devendra Fadnavis should understand that it is the same police whom he has worked within the last five years.”
He spoke about the efforts the state and Mumbai police have taken up during the times of coronavirus scare and added, “The state police and Mumbai police are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. They are COVID warriors and not to trust them is an insult to them.”
Thackeray also requested the audience and Devendra Fadnavis to not use this case as a Maharashtra versus Bihar issue. He assured the SSR fans, “I would like to tell Rajput's fans to trust the Mumbai police and give whatever information they have to them. You can criticize if the case is not taken to its logical conclusion. We will interrogate and punish the guilty. However, please don't use this case as a Maharashtra versus Bihar issue. This is the most deplorable thing to do.”
