Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Friday said the state police were capable of probing the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case, an assertion which comes in the backdrop of growing clamour for a CBI probe  in the actor's death here in June. He said people must trust the probe into the high- profile case being conducted by the Mumbai police. 

Of late, there has been a growing demand from certain quarters to hand over the case to the CBI, but the state government has been repeatedly insisting that the Mumbai police were capable to handle the matter.

"The state police and Mumbai police are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. They are COVID warriors and not to trust them is an insult to them,'' he said.

"I would like to tell Rajput's fans to trust the Mumbai police and give whatever information they have to them. You can criticise if the case is not taken to its logical conclusion," he said. Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14. 

A Bihar police team is probing a separate 'abetment to suicide' case on the basis of a complaint filed by the late actor's father in Patna. Thackeray lashed out at Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis, saying the BJP politician had doubted the the credibility of the Mumbai police in handling the case despite being a chief minister for five years.
