Most Media Reports In Sushant Singh Rajput Case Are Not Based On Facts: CBI
Central Bureau of Investigation has accused Indian media of “speculative” reporting, saying that most reports around its probe into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput are not “based of facts”.
A statement released by CBI on Thursday read that the agency is conducting an investigation in a “systematic and professional way” and that the information in the case is not at all similar to what media has been reporting.
“Certain media reports attributed to CBI investigation are speculative and not based on facts,” the statement read. The investigation bureau further noted that various media reports regarding agency probe are not “credible” or “based on facts”, adding that media houses are “speculative” in nature as they are sharing the false information regarding the ongoing investigation, Hindustan Times reported.
“It is requested that the media may please confirm details from a CBI spokesperson before quoting CBI,” said CBI spokesperson R K Gaur.
Clarifying the fact that what media is showing, in relation with Rajput’s case has not been shared by the CBI spokesperson or any team member, he further added, “It is reiterated that as a matter of policy, CBI does not share details of ongoing investigation. CBI spokesperson or any team member has not shared any details of the investigation with the media.”
