Who is Bihar’s Dabang IPS Vinay Tiwari, who is going to investigate Sushant murder mystery

Sushant Singh Rajput’s unexpected death by suicide took the entire nation by shock. Though the reason behind his death is still unclear, the whole nation has been indicting nepotism for the death of this extremely talented actor. The final postmortem and viscera reports confirmed that Sushant Singh passed away due to asphyxia by hanging and police say Sushant Singh died by suicide at his Bandra apartment in Mumbai.

But the actor’s ardent fans are still speculating something fishy in his death. It has been more than a month since star Bollywood actor passed away but nobody seems to have moved on. Sushant’s fans are still paying him rich tributes on social media with some throwback pictures and heart-melting video clips.

Mumbai Police already launched a probe into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. As many as 56 people including Rhea Chakraborty, Ankita Lokhande, his manager, Mahesh Shetty, Rumi Jaffery have been questioned so far.

However, the actor’s ardent fans are not happy with the ongoing probe. Celebrities and his fans have demanded a CBI investigation into the actor’s death. It is being told that Mumbai Police has lost its credibility in the eyes of people as Mumbai Police are not doing a fair and impartial investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.

Calling people to record their statement is just a show to appease public sentiment because the matter is hot right now. 

Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against his late son and actor’s alleged ex-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty. In his complaint, he highlighted that Sushant Singh Rajput was under extreme mental pressure put by Rhea Chakraborty. 

KK Singh also alleged that Chakraborty and her family kept his son away from his family, handled his bank accounts and took away crores of rupees.

Mumbai police have failed completely to crack the case, hence a four-member special investigation team from Patna Police has started a parallel investigation into Rajput’s death.

The state police has now sent a four-member team headed by Dabang IPS officer Vinay Tiwari. SP Vinay Tiwari has already reached Mumbai with his team to probe allegations against the deceased actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.

The four-member team has now begun its probe after Rajput’s father lodged a complaint in Patna on July 25. Speaking about the case, Tiwari said, “The [Bihar Police] team in Mumbai is doing a good job. The next step in the investigation is supervision and hence a senior official had to come so I have come. I will have a meeting with my team.”

He further said, “An FIR has been registered. We are taking statements of the stakeholders for the last one week and will take statements from one and all. The statements will be analysed and then we will arrive at a conclusion”.

With the case handed over to Tiwari, the Bihar Police has sent the Mumbai Police a strong message that Investigations will be impartial and unbiased.
