CBI investigation not finished yet
The petition stated that this court passed an order for CBI investigation on August 19, 2020 and now despite nearly four months having passed, the CBI has not concluded its investigation. It added that in the case of Sushant’s death, his family members as well as his fans and well-wishers have not yet ascertained the exact cause of his death.
Deadline to be set
The petitioner contended that the court should now set a time limit of two months for this investigation, so that a timely conclusion can be reached. Along with this, it has also been demanded from the apex court to issue a directive to the CBI to submit a report regarding its investigation. The CBI is not acting responsibly in the present case and the conclusion of the investigation of the case is delayed.
