Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s family filed a caveat before the Supreme Court on Thursday, seeking to be heard in connection with actress Rhea Chakraborty’s petition in the apex court, pleading for the transfer of the investigation to Mumbai. The Supreme Court, earlier on Thursday dismissed a PIL seeking transfer of the probe into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death from Mumbai police to the CBI.

A bench comprising Chief Justice S A Bobde and Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian said that the Mumbai Police should be allowed to complete the investigation and if something was found, then a plea should be filed before the Bombay High Court, news agency PTI reported.

“Go to Bombay High Court if you have anything concrete to show,” the bench said when the counsel for PIL petitioner Alka Priya sought the CBI probe into the death of the actor.
