As the probe into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput intensifies, Union Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has now called for a fair probe into the case.

In an exclusive interview with Hindustan Editor-in-Chief Shashi Shekhar, Prasad said that the actor's loss is a loss for the nation and not just the state of Bihar.

The minister said that he was extremely saddened by the incident and the politics that followed his death.

He also narrated an incident when he met the actor at the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

Sushant SIngh Rajput died of suicide on June 14, 2020.

The case has now been handed over to the CBI after an open tug-of-war between the Maharashtra police and the Bihar police.

Sushant's father has named the deceased actor's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty in the FIR filed in Patna and accused her of abetment to suicide.

He also alleged that there were some fraudulent financial transactions, following which the Enforcement Directorate filed a money laundering acase.

Rhea and her family members have been questioned several times by the agency so far.

'One nation can't have 2 flags': BJP condemns ex-J&K CM's tricolour comment

PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti came under attack for her comments on Indian flag. Mufti recently said she won't raise the tricolour till J&K state flag is restored. She made the comments with the flag of erstwhile J&K state on her table. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad called her comments anti-national. He said, “We condemn how Mehbooba Mufti has insulted the Indian tricolour. Her statement that she won't raise the tricolour until the J&K state flag is restored via Article 370 - there can't be any comment more objectionable than this. The tricolour is India's national flag. Jammu & Kashmir is an inviolable part of India. Article 370 was removed as per Constitutional process. Both Houses of Parliament cleared it. Today, J&K has good administration, strict action against terror. People are happy there. To such a statement about not raising the tricolour till the state flag is restored, we want to say - Article 370 will never be restored. It has ended. One nation can't have two symbols, two chiefs. There can't be two flags.”
