recommend a CBI inquiry in the actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case after the deceaseds father made a request for it, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Tuesday.

"Bihar DGP (Gupteshwar Pandey) had a talk with the late actors father K K Singh today. DGP has informed me that the father has asked for a CBI probe into the case, Kumar said.

The chief minister said he told the DGP to initiate necessary steps to immediately send a proposal to the state government in this regard.
