Dr. Narendra Dabholkar, who was fighting a battle against superstition and Aghori system, was shot dead on 20 August 2013 in Pune.
Mumbai| A day after the Supreme Court asked CBI to take over the Sushant Singh Rajput Death case, NCP Supremo Sharad Pawar has reacted to the development that was seen as a setback for Maharashtra govt. Pawar taunted that he hopes that the result of this investigation should not be like the investigation into the murder of Dr Narendra Dabholkar, which has not yet found a solution. On 30 August 2013, Dr Dabholkar was shot and killed in Pune. This massacre is going to be a full seven years.
Sharad Pawar tweeted: “Supreme Court has ordered the transfer of investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput case to CBI. I am sure that the Maharashtra government will honour this decision and fully cooperate in the investigation.”
I am sure the Maharashtra Govt will respect the judgement of the Supreme Court to handover Sushant Singh Rajput’s case to the CBI and fully cooperate in the investigation process.

Dabholkar’s family said that it is painful that CBI could not complete investigation even in seven years
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Dr Dabholkar’s daughter Mukta and son Dr Hameed Dabholkar said – “Seven years of murder have been completed.” The Maharashtra Police did not properly investigate the initial nine months after the murder. After this, the case was handed over to the CBI following the High Court order. It is very painful that a reputed agency like CBI has not been able to complete the investigation till now.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had said that some leaders are making political statements on the death of actor Sushant Singh keeping in mind the Bihar elections. He said that constitutional experts should also take care of the federal structure of the country.
