Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14 in his Bandra residence. The case was being investigated by Mumbai Police before his father KK Singh filed a complaint with the Bihar Police against actor Rhea Chakraborty and six others for allegedly abetting his suicide.

Subsequently, Rhea filed a plea in the Supreme Court seeking the transfer of the probe from Patna to Mumbai. In his reply to the Supreme court on Thursday, Sushant's father urged the court to transfer the case to the CBI.

People across India, including celebrities and politicians have demanded a CBI probe into the case.
