NEW DELHI, Aug 5: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said it is unfortunate that a gifted artist like Sushant Singh Rajput passed away in unusual circumstances and the truth in the matter should come out.
Justice Hrishikesh Roy, hearing the arguments on a plea by Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty seeking transfer of the case from Patna to Mumbai, said "very unfortunate incident has taken place".
"A gifted and talented artist has passed away in circumstances which are unusual. Now, the circumstances in which this death took place needs to be inquired into," Justice Roy observed.
The judge also added that it needs to be investigated whether there was any criminality involved in the matter.
"Everybody has an opinion in the matter, we need to proceed according to the law," added Justice Roy.
Rhea Chakraborty's counsel asked the top court to grant her interim protection. � IANS
