Swara Bhasker reacted to the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) inquiry in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, which was ordered by the Supreme Court. The actress hopes that the CBI will be allowed to conduct their probe in a fair and impartial manner. She also questioned the lack of trust in Mumbai police and said that they should have been allowed to do their job.
"I don't think it is fair to suggest that the Mumbai Police were not doing a good job or were not being professional. I think that there is a problem right there that we did not trust the Mumbai Police, we should have. We have no reason to doubt their conduct. I hope the CBI will now be allowed to do their job in a fair and impartial manner," said Swara, speaking to Pinkvilla.
She added, "There is nothing new to add, I have said this before that the courts, the judicial system must be allowed to do their job, the police should have been allowed to do their job."
The Supreme Court settled the battle between the Mumbai police and Bihar police over jurisdiction of Sushant's case, by handing the case to the CBI on Wednesday, August 19, 2020. It also directed the Mumbai police to cooperate with the CBI on the case.
The Mumbai police came under a lot of criticism after Sushant's father KK Singh filed an FIR with the Bihar police with regard to his son's death. Alleged loopholes in the Mumbai police's investigation were called out by many.
