In a major development, Mumbai’s Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has released Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari from quarantine.
The step comes two days after the Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case was handed over to CBI.
“Considering that it is the only fifth day of his arrival and since the request to exempt from home isolation to go back to Patna has come from Patna police, and considering the provision in the SOP to exempt passengers on a short-duration visit, it is hereby decided to exempt Mr. Vinay Tiwarl from Home Quarantine subject to fulfilling the following conditions,” says the order.
Earlier, BMC had turned down the request of the Bihar Police seeking exemption for Vinay Tiwari.
The IPS officer had reportedly arrived in Mumbai on August 2 and was since then put under quarantine.
