The Supreme Court will pronounce its judgment in Actress Rhea Chakraborty's plea seeking transfer of FIR in Bihar to Mumbai in the case related to death of Sushant Singh Rajput.

The case is listed for judgement before Justice Hrishikesh Roy at 11 am tomorrow.

Case Timeline

29 July: The Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking transfer of an FIR from Patna to Mumbai and the stay on the investigation by the Bihar police on the allegations of Sushant Singh Rajput's father that she abetted suicide of his actor son.

5 August: Justice Hrishikesh Roy refused to grant a stay in the Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and issued notice to Bihar Government.

6 August: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered a First Information Report (FIR) against Actress Rhea Chakraborty and five family members in the Sushant Singh Rajput's death case.

7 August: In its affidavit filed before the Supreme Court in response to the Transfer Petition , Bihar Government alleged that Mumbai Police is not cooperating with its investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case and is siding with Rhea. It also raised its objections against maintainability of the Transfer petition contending that section 406 Cr.P.C cannot be invoked to transfer investigation from one state to another state.

11 August: Justice Hrishikesh Roy heard all the parties and reserved the case for orders. During the hearing, Senior Advocate Shyam Divan, representing Chakraborty asserted that it was only the Mumbai Police who had the authority to handle the case, while Patna Police had no jurisdiction to have registered the case at all. Senior advocate Maninder Singh, who appeared for Bihar Government, contended that there was no investigation being carried out by the Mumbai police since there was no FIR that had been registered in the State.
