The Central Bureau Of Investigation (CBI), which is probing the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, slammed the media for coming out with speculative news reports on the investigation into the case.
In a statement, the agency noted that it is conducting the probe “in a systematic and professional way.”
Further, it said certain media reports attributed to the CBI investigation are “speculative and not based on facts.” “It is reiterated that as a matter of policy, the CBI does not share details of ongoing investigation. CBI spokesperson or any team member has not shared any details of investigation with media,” the agency said in the statement, adding that “The details being reported and attributed to the CBI are not credible.”
The CBI further urged reporters to confirm details from a spokesperson before quoting the agency on the issue.
The agency, which questioned actor Rhea Chakraborty for days, has so far remained tight-lipped about details of its probe into the high-profile case which has been hogging media limelight.
Rajput was found hanging in his apartment following which the Mumbai Police had registered a case of accidental death.
The late filmstar's father subsequently filed a police complaint in Patna, accusing Rhea Chakraborty and her family of abetting Rajput's suicide and misappropriating his money.
