Opinion | Sushant case: A feisty DGP, the CBI and Shiv Sena’s fear

With the Supreme Court docket ordering a CBI probe into the mysterious loss of life of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the stage is now set for the nation’s premier investigation company to start its probe. The one-judge bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy invoked Article 142 of the Structure at hand over the probe to CBI, thus ending a bitter tussle between Mumbai Police and Bihar Police.

In my prime time present ‘Aaj Ki Baat’ on Wednesday evening, I did a dwell interview with Bihar Director Normal of Police Gupteshwar Pandey and requested him why he was taking private curiosity on this case. His reply was easy: “Sushant was ‘Bihar ka beta’. Not solely 12 crore folks of Bihar, however folks from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Bengal to Gujarat have been emotional over the loss of life of their actor.”
The state police chief narrated how he went to satisfy Sushant’s father Kamal Kishore Singh the day after the actor’s loss of life to convey condolence on behalf of Bihar chief minister. “The 74 12 months outdated man was utterly coronary heart damaged. He was solely saying ‘I’ve misplaced the whole lot’. I feared whether or not the daddy might not commit suicide like Sushant. The following day I rang up Mumbai Police commissioner, however he didn’t take my name. I despatched message to him requesting him to probe, however he didn’t reply. It was then that I started suspecting.”
My subsequent query was, why as state police chief he had suspicions about Rhea Chakraborty. Pandey replied: “Rhea is going through the needle of suspicion due to her personal behaviour. At first, she tweeted to the Union House Minister in search of a CBI probe, however once we requested the CBI to probe, she opposed and stated she had religion within the probe by Mumbai Police.”
I requested the Bihar DGP whether or not CBI will reach unravelling the thriller 66 days after the actor’s loss of life. His reply was: “To be sincere, it’s a tough job. If the native police doesn’t cooperate, then it is going to be an enormous problem for CBI. Since it’s a skilled company having the most effective of officers, I imagine they are going to reach unravelling the reality from someplace.”
Once I identified that Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde in a press release on Tuesday had levelled allegations  in opposition to Sushant’s sister, the Bihar Police chief says: “I’ll request Rhea to not take this course. I don’t know who’s advising her. She is going to face extra hassle if she makes such allegations by way of social media. She isn’t a suspect, she is the named accused. She should battle the authorized battle in court docket in a authorized method and cooperate with CBI. No person goes to take heed to her allegations outdoors.”
I requested Pandey whether or not he had seen any such case like Sushant’s loss of life in his total profession. He replied: “In my 34 -year-long profession, I dealt with a number of circumstances of bloodbath in Naxalite-infested districts as SP, however I by no means noticed a case with so many twists, turns and mysteries. I’m ‘janata ka DGP’. I come from a household of farmers, a household the place I used to be the primary to move Matric, BA after which joined the police. Throughout Holi and Diwali yearly, folks from close by slums come to have a good time the festivals with me. I’ve full religion in CBI.”
Little doubt, the Bihar police chief is a no-nonsense officer who doesn’t minces his phrases when he speaks. He by no means tries to obfuscate and conceal info. He usually turns into emotional, however his feelings doesn’t are available in the way in which he capabilities as a police chief.  It’s a proven fact that he was taking private curiosity on this case from the start and had promised to present justice to Sushant’s household. He was naturally elated after the Supreme Court docket gave its verdict.  Some folks suspect that the DGP is indulging in politics, however his method of  talking with none compunctions should not be taken as a part of any political gambit.
Handing over the probe to CBI was important as a result of folks had began suspecting the function of Mumbai Police. The style during which Mumbai Police declared the actor’s loss of life as suicide in a rush, the non-filing of FIR until date, the questionable method during which Mumbai Police tried to cease Bihar Police from investigating, the midnight quarantine of an IPS officer from Bihar – all these indicated in the direction of some form of stress being placed on Mumbai Police, recognized for its professionalism.
Had the Bihar Police not registered an FIR, had it not despatched its police to Mumbai to analyze, Mumbai Police would, by now, have closed this case declaring it as a suicide. Individuals had began suspecting that Mumbai Police was making an attempt to defend Rhea Chakraborty. Questions have been raised whether or not any politician was making an attempt to guard the culprits.  In a means, the CBI probe has come as a welcome aid for Mumbai Police, as a result of folks would  nonetheless have suspected if it had resumed investigation correctly.  
On politicizing this situation, I need to make one factor clear. All politicians know that there are an excessive amount of feelings over Sushant’s loss of life and other people need to know the reality. Politicians who’re saying that this situation should not be politicized, are themselves making an attempt to grind their political axe. Whether or not it’s BJP, or JD(U), or Congress, or Shiv Sena or NCP, all these events are taking part in politics over this case of an actor’s loss of life.
Politicians like Narayan Rane and Nitesh Rane overtly named Aditya Thackeray on this case, with Nitesh Rane even tweeting “Ab  Child Penguin Toh Giyo !”. Since Aditya Thackeray is a minister, and the Chief Minister’s son, he needed to give clarifications and Mumbai Police’s function is being seen from this prism.  When Maharashtra authorities opposed handing over the probe to CBI, BJP and JD(U) took benefit and made it a difficulty of Bihar’s status. Shiv Sena is frightened as a result of Aditya Thackeray is the chief minister’s son, and the celebration doesn’t need his picture to be dented. Shiv Sena isn’t frightened in any respect about BJP or JD(U) taking benefit in Bihar. It’s frightened over find out how to deal with the matter when CBI summons Aditya Thackeray for questioning on this case.
