The Supreme Court on Wednesday, 19 August, gave its verdict in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. It rejected Sushant's partner Rhea Chakraborty's petition asking for the FIR filed in Patna against her to be transferred to Mumbai and handed over the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation.

Akshay Kumar, Ankita Lokhande, Neil Nitin Mukesh and other celebrities welcomed the move. "SC directs CBI to investigate Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. May the truth always prevail", tweeted Akshay.

The Supreme Court said since the Mumbai police had registered only an accidental death report, it had limited investigation powers. On the other hand, the Bihar police registered a "full-fledged FIR" which already stands referred to the CBI, the court said.

The Maharashtra government has been asked to cooperate with the CBI probe and provide all assistance. If any other case was registered in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput's death, it would also be probed by the CBI, the top court said.
