The CBI probe into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death was a hoax and a disgrace to the renowned institution, Maharashtra Congress General Secretary Sachin Sawant said in a tweet today.
At least 534 days after the CBI took charge and 474 days since the AIIMS ruled out murder in the actor's death, the investigation has been a hoax and disgrace to the renowned institution, the leader said.
The Congress leader took to social media to pay tribute to the actor on his birth anniversary.
“Tribute to a talented actor #SushantSinghRajput on his birth anniversary. His unfortunate death was horribly misused by Modi govt & BJP for cheap electoral gains in Bihar. Cheap stunt to defame & destabilise MVA govt," Mr Sawant said.
“534 days of CBI took charge & 474 days since the AIIMS ruled out murder. CBI, which shows extraordinary efficiency in investigating matters related to opposition leaders, continues to drag its feet on the SSR case. This investigation has been a hoax & disgrace to this renowned institution,” he tweeted.
The 34-year-old actor was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai's Bandra on June 14, 2020. The Enforcement Directorate (ED), Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) were brought in to investigate various angles in the actor's death.
