The late actor’s family members had requested for a CBI probe into the incident after Mumbai Police “did not show sensitivity in properly investigating” the case.

Kumar said in Patna that family members of Sushant had contacted state DGP Gupteshwar Pandey with request for CBI probe into the case after which he had directed the state police to send formal recommendation to Centre for CBI probe. The proposal for recommendation would be sent to the Centre on August 4 itself, he confirmed.

The chief minister, responding to a query, said that behaviour of Mumbai Police was not good with police officers of Bihar who had gone to Mumbai to investigate the case. An IPS officer of Bihar was quarantined in Mumbai who had gone there on official duty to probe the case, he pointed out and remarked that such action was highly irresponsible.
