Singh gave consent, I directed the DGP to do the paperwork for the recommendation of the CBI probe.” Kumar said that this demand was made by all and that the police were investigating the case registered in Patna. But the Bihar police team in Mumbai was not getting cooperation from Maharashtra Police. In such a situation, CBI investigation was necessary, he said.
