Truth and justice prevail in Maharashtra: Raut
On the CBI investigation of the Sushant case, Sanjay Raut has said that Maharashtra is a state where law and order have always been at the top, it is a state of law where truth and justice always prevail. Police, the judicial system and governance have always seen that no matter how big or small a person is, there is no one above the law. It is not right for me to talk about the legal action in the government, who are knowledgeable about the law or the Commissioner of Mumbai Police or Advocate General can speak on the decision of the Supreme Court.
