Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut.

A day after the Maharashtra government withdrew the overall consent accorded to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe instances within the state, the Shiv Sena on Thursday mentioned the choice was taken in view of the central company’s interference within the issues already being probed by the state police.

Shiv Sena chief and chief spokesperson Sanjay Raut alleged that the CBI and different central businesses have been used to defame states dominated by events aside from the Bharatiya Janata Party.

“Such decisions have to be taken to protect the rights of the State when agencies like the CBI, Enforcement Directorate, National Commission for Women, which have some authority to investigate, are used to create trouble for or defame governments of parties other than the BJP. The same has happened in West Bengal, it was done in Andhra Pradesh, and some more states have also done it,” Raut instructed reporters on Thursday.

The Sena chief added that previously few months, there have been many situations when Mumbai police began a probe, an FIR was lodged by another state and the CBI entered the image. “Our patience has ran out. The moment the police took up a case and reached a conclusion, the central agency, acting on an FIR in another state, took over the case and entered Maharashtra. How long can this go on? Maharashtra has its pride,” Raut mentioned.

The state authorities’s choice got here a day after the central company mentioned it will examine the alleged Television Rating Points (TRP) fraud case after registering an FIR on the advice of the Uttar Pradesh authorities.

Before the TRP case, the Mumbai Police was locked in a jurisdictional tussle with the Centre and the CBI over the loss of life of actor Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14 in what the police referred to as an open-and-shut case of suicide.

A political controversy erupted after a Bihar police workforce constituted to probe the case on a grievance by the actor’s household in Patna alleged it received no cooperation from its Mumbai counterpart. Subsequently, CBI took over the case on Bihar’s request.
