"The agency has received the notification from the government," a CBI spokesperson told IANS. Earlier in the day, the DoPT issued a notification paving the way for the CBI to register a case. In another related development, the Centre told the Supreme Court that it had accepted the Bihar government's recommendation for a CBI probe into the case. On Tuesday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had sought the CBI probe into the death of the actor on June 14 at his Bandra apartment in Mumbai, on the request of Sushant Singh's father K.K. Singh. On Singh's complaint, the Bihar Police registered a case against Sushant Singh's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty on July 25.
