Mumbai: The Maharashtra police have arranged an accommodation and a vehicle for Patna city SP Vinay Tiwari who is currently here. Vinay Tiwari is here to supervise investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, a local police official said on Monday night.
Amid a turf war between Mumbai and Bihar police over the probe, Tiwari was quarantined for 14 days after his arrival in Mumbai on Sunday by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). He was shifted to the State Reserve Police Force quarters in suburban Goregaon last night.
Patna senior superintendent of police (SSP) Upendra Kumar Sharma had sent a request to the IG (Headquarters) in the office of the Maharashtra DGP for accommodation and vehicle for Tiwari, the official said.
Accordingly, accommodation arrangements were made at the Senior Officers Mess, SRPF (GRP VIII) in Goregaon, and a Maruti Ertiga has been arranged for Tiwari, he said.
Tiwari had landed in Mumbai, days after a four-member police team from Bihar started investigation on the FIR lodged by the late actor’s father KK Singh in Patna. Singh had named Sushant’s girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty and her family members in his complaint.
A controversy had earlier erupted when the Patna police had alleged that Tiwari was ‘forcibly’ quarantined to prevent him from probing Sushant’s death. The war of words between Mumbai and Bihar police are continuing.
