After approving the CBI investigation in Sushant singh Rajput death case the Supreme Court had stated that there was nothing on record to suggest any wrong doing on the part of Mumbai Police

After giving permission to CBI investigation in the Death case of the Sushant Singh Rajput the Apex Court observed that there was nothing on record to prima facie suggest any “wrongdoing on the part of Mumbai police”.

The matter was heard by the single bench Justice Hrishikesh Roy and he stated that the Mumbai police was carrying out a limited inquiry under Section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (inquiry process into unnatural death) and was yet to register an FIR under Section 154 CrPC in respect to the suicide of the actor. Therefore, the Court said, that “it cannot be said with certainty at this stage that they (Mumbai police) will not undertake an investigation on the other aspects of the unnatural death, by registering a FIR.

At the same time, the Court disapproved the Mumbai police action of putting the Bihar police officers into quarantine and observed that such obstruction “could have been avoided since it gave rise to suspicion on the bonafide of their inquiry”.

The records of the case produced before this Court, does not prima facie suggest any wrong doing by the Mumbai Police. However, their obstruction to the Bihar police team at Mumbai could have been avoided since it gave rise to suspicion on the bonafide of their inquiry. The Police at Mumbai were conducting only a limited inquiry into the cause of unnatural death, under Section 174 CrPC and therefore, it cannot be said with certainty at this stage that they will not undertake an investigation on the other aspects of the unnatural death, by registering a FIR”, the judgment stated.
