Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Friday demanded a CBI probe into the case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s alleged suicide, saying only the central agency can do justice in the matter amid “tussle” between Bihar and Mumbai police.

The Lok Janshakti Party founder told PTI that Rajput’s alleged suicide is shrouded in mystery and expressed his anguish at the “lack of progress” in the case so far despite the passage of nearly seven weeks since his death.
