This decision comes as one step towards justice for late actor Sushant says his aficionados and friends. However, everyone awaited his family’s reaction to the verdict. His family has officially made a statement on it.

They said, “Now that the country’s premier investigating agency has taken over, we believe that all those involved in the dastardly crime will be brought to justice. Today’s development reaffirmed our faith in India as a robust democracy.”
The CBI has registered an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and others in connection with the actor’s death after the Centre accepted Bihar Government’s recommendation to transfer the probe in the matter from Patna.
The single-judge bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy also said that the Bihar Government was competent to recommend transferring the case to the CBI. The apex court also asked Mumbai Police to hand over all the evidence collected so far in the case to the CBI. The state of Maharashtra refused the option to challenge the order.
