Earlier today, Sushant's father's lawyer said the case should be investigated in Patna.

Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh was scheduled to meet senior officials, at 5pm IST on Wednesday, to discuss Sushant Singh Rajput's death case.

"I will be having a meeting with officials at 5pm," he told reporters in Mumbai.

Deshmukh refused to respond to questions regarding handing over the probe into Sushant's death case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Earlier today, former Additional Solicitor General (ASG) and lawyer of the late actor's father, Vikas Singh, had said that the Patna police should investigate the case of Rajput's death, and the FIR was registered there as part of the cause of action lies in the place where his family lived.

An FIR had been registered against actor Rhea Chakraborty at a Patna police station under various sections including abetment of suicide on the complaint of Sushant's father K.K. Singh, the police had said on Tuesday. It said that a four-member team had been sent to Mumbai following registration of FIR.

According to the Maharashtra police, statements of 41 people, including filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt film critic Rajeev Masand, director-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and filmmaker Aditya Chopra have been recorded in the investigation so far.

Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14.
