In a statement to ANI, the Commissioner said that the no question of ‘non-cooperation’ did not arise and that they are “legally examining” whether Bihar Police have jurisdiction or not in Sushant Singh’s death case.
“We saw them (Bihar Police) in a big car & then in auto. They didn’t ask us for car. They asked for documents of case. We told them it’s our jurisdiction. They should share how they’re coming in our jurisdiction. We’re taking legal opinion to examine it,” ANI quoted the Commissioner.

A video of the press meet saw the commissioner take on questions and reiterate that the Mumbai Police was pursuing this case ‘legally’ and ‘professionally’.
“There is no question of non-cooperation, we are legally examining whether they (Bihar police) have jurisdiction or not in Sushant Singh Rajput Case. Still, if they’ve got jurisdiction then they should prove it,” said Param Bir to reporters.
Bir alleged that the Police have so far recorded the statements of 56 people and that they had recorded Rhea’s statements twice and had called her to the police station about four to five times.
In a statement by her lawyer, Advocate Satish Maneshinde said, “The contention of Bihar Police that Rhea Chakraborty is missing is not correct. Her statement has been recorded by Mumbai police. She’s cooperated with police as and when called. Till today no notice or summons has been received by her from Bihar Police and they have no jurisdiction to investigate the case. She has filed proceedings in the SC. She has sought transfer of the case to Mumbai. The case is Sub Judice.”
