On Wednesday, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress demanded a CBI probe into Sushant Singh Rajput's death, a day after the late actor's father, K. K. Singh, filed an FIR at Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna.
BJP spokesman Nikhil Anand said Sushant Singh Rajput was a 'brilliant', 'talented' and 'intellectual' actor. His suspicious death has hurt his fans across the world.

He said, "We support the actor's family for filing the case, we are with them. All important people from all walks of life have demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter."

He further said, "There should be a CBI investigation in Sushant case, so that 'Bihar's son' can get a justice. Bollywood's mafia, Hawala, anti-national and criminal alliances could come to the fore."

Meanwhile, the Congress has also reiterated its demand of a CBI investigation into the matter. Lalan Kumar, former president of Bihar Pradesh Youth Congress, said on the basis of the FIR filed by Sushant's father in Rajiv Nagar, it can be said that many 'secrets' are hidden in his death. His fans should get answers to these questions.

He said that the investigation of this case should be done by the CBI, so that the reality of the case can be revealed to everyone.

Kumar had earlier written to the Governor requesting a CBI inquiry.

Earlier, Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) President Chirag Paswan had spoken to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray over the phone. Paswan said that the Bihar and Maharashtra Police are seriously investigating the case, but it is better to hand over the investigation to the CBI.

Sushant passed away on June 14 in Mumbai.
