Reacting to the Bihar government move to hand over the case to CBI , Satish Maneshinde, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer sai to ANI:” There can’t be transfer of a case which had no legal basis for Bihar to get involved. At most, it would be a ‘Zero FIR’ transferable to Mumbai Police. Transfer of a case,on which they had no jurisdiction, to CBI has no legal sanctity.”
