The lawyer of Sushant Singh Rajput has told ANI that the Mumbai Police was not registering an FIR in the matter and was instead forcing them to give the names of big production houses to get them involved in the case.
The lawyer Vikas Singh who is also the former additional solicitor general made this statement over the timing of the family's FIR which has now been filed with the Patna Police. Singh also claimed that the matter was heading in a different direction under the Mumbai Police.
Singh added that the Patna Police too was hesitant in filing the FIR but then Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Minister Sanjay Jha stepped in.
Patna (Central) City SP has meanwhile said that preliminary investigation has begun in the matter and all the individuals named by the family have been booked.
Those booked includes Sushant's reported girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, who has been accused by the late actor's father of instigating him to commit suicide.
