A day after Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has refused to free Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari from quarantine, Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey has warned of legal action. Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari had gone to Mumbai to probe actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case when he was quarantined by the BMC soon after his arrival in Mumbai on Sunday.
On Thursday, Gupteshwar Pandey told that if Vinay Tiwari is not released from ‘forcible quarantine’ by the end of the day, he will seek legal action.

Earlier on Wednesday too, the Bihar DGP had tweeted expressing displeasure on the matter. He said that despite of Supreme Court being critical about quarantining of Vinay Tiwari, BMC hasn’t released the officer.
माननीय सर्वोच्च न्यायालय द्वारा ये गम्भीर टिप्पणी की गयी हैकि बिहार के IPS विनय तिवारी को मुंबई में ज़बरदस्ती कोरंटिन किया जाना ग़लत है फिर भी BMC ने उन्हें अभी तक उन्हें मुक्त नहीं किया है.वे सुप्रीम कोर्ट की भी परवाह नहीं करते! अब इसको आप क्या कहेंगे??? अफ़सोस!
