Mumbai resident Puneet Kaur has filed a Writ Petition in the Supreme Court, questioning the apparent silence on part of the Central Bureau of Investigation regarding the progress in its probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
The petition, filed by Kaur’s husband and advocate, Vineet Dhanda has prayed for issuance of Directions to the CBI to complete its probe in next two months and submit its report in the case.
Kaur’s plea says that almost four months have passed since the investigation was handed over to CBI, however CBI has not provided any details about the status of its probe.
The plea also prays that the Supreme Court must not allow the probe to be dragged on endlessly, and instead fix a time frame of further two months, to ensure, swift and fair investigation.
The petitioners further pray that CBI be directed to submit a report pertaining to the investigation in the concerned court as well as Supreme Court, stating “The Central Bureau of Investigation is not acting responsible in the present case and there is a delay in the conclusion of the investigation of the case. Even in serious offences like murder the law stipulates filing of charge sheets in ninety days but in the present case the premium investigating agency has failed miserably in their role and the unnecessary delay in the present case is bringing bad name to the administration of justice not only in our country but across the globe.”
The plea states that Supreme Court’s intervention is required in this matter, due to various conspiracy theories pertaining to the circumstances of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death are floating around in various social media platforms, and a quick and swift investigation is required to address the sufferings that these theories are causing to Rajput’s fans and near and dear ones.
Arguing that justice delayed is justice denied, the plea states that the manner in which the investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has been conducted so far has caused a serious dent to image of CBI and Judiciary in the hearts of common man, and that a swift and impartial probe is needed to address the same.
