CBI team will need to take permission for exemption from home quarantine : BMC

Read what BMC has to say about CBI's official team reaching Mumbai!

Yesterday Supreme Court announced its verdict on the CBI probe in favor of Sushant Singh Rajput‘s family. As reported, CBI’s official team was on standby to fly to Mumbai to probe SSR’s death case. Now after the verdict is in favor of CBI, the Supreme Court has handed over the case to CBI and has asked Mumbai police to hand over all the evidence and reports of the case so far.

Right after the announcement took place, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal on Wednesday said that a visiting CBI team will need to take permission for exemption from home quarantine if it wants to stay in Mumbai to probe Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. Commissioner Iqbal stated to ANI, “If the CBI team comes for 7 days they will be automatically exempted from quarantine and if they come for more than seven days period then they have to apply for exemption through our email id and we’ll exempt them.”

A few weeks ago, BMC quarantined Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari under the coronavirus-related isolation guidelines when he reached Mumbai to investigate the SSR’s death case.

Now, Supreme Court has finally handed over the case to CBI for probe and also asked Mumbai police to share all the evidence and reports of the case so far. Supreme Court also validated Bihar police’s recommendation to transfer the case to CBI.

The petition to transfer the case to Mumbai police was filed by Rhea Chakraborty, before which the late actor’s father filed an FIR against Rhea and her family.
