'The power of prayers and so many wishes manifesting never ceases to amaze me. Hope the truth comes out soon.'
Sushant Singh Rajput's family lawyer Vikas Singh said the Supreme Court's upholding the transfer to the CBI of the FIR against his girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty and others for allegedly abetting the actor's suicide has given impetus to their 'quest for justice'.
The senior advocate said the apex court verdict is a victory for Rajput's family and fans.
"The Supreme Court has accepted all points. The court also clearly said the FIR registered at Patna was correct," Singh told the media.
Minutes later, he tweeted: 'Well begun is half done. Has been a gruelling time listening to experts that Patna had no jurisdiction to register the FIR. Our quest for justice gets impetus with the authoritative decision by Supreme Court.'
Besides the family, Sushant's colleagues in the film industry were also happy with the Supreme Court's verdict, and they took to social media to express themselves:
