The Supreme Court ordered a CBI probe in Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case today at 11 am. Where the whole nation is happy with the verdict, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut backed Mumbai Police and said that it carried out a fair investigation in the case. Raut, however, preferred not to comment on the SC verdict and said that those in the government who know the law will comment on the SC’s ruling. Reacting to the verdict, he said, “Those in the government who know the law, the Mumbai Police Commissioner or our Advocate General can talk about it, it is not fit for me to comment on the verdict of Supreme Court”.
