Mumbai’s Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Friday (August 7) released Bihar IPS officer Vinay Tiwari from quarantine and asked him to return back to Patna on August 8. The step comes two days after the Sushant Singh Rajput death case was handed over to CBI. Bihar police had put several allegations on Mumbai police and alleged that the Bihar IPS was not quarantined but under ‘house arrest’.
The BMS statement read, ”The Municipal commissioner of MCGM has is asking to exempt IPS officer Vinay Tiwari from home quarantine to facilitate his return to Patna to resume his duties.”
Soon after the IPS officer was released Bihar police chief Gupteshwar Pandey took to Twitter and said, ”Following the remarks of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, Bihar Police Headquarters wrote a letter to the Commissioner of BMC yesterday requesting them to release IPS officer Vinay Tiwari. He is released today and will return to Patna this evening. Thanks to BMC.”

On August 6, Bihar police chief Gupteshwar Pandey had warned of legal action if the IPS officer, was not released from “forcible quarantine” by the end of the day. Pandey expressed bewilderment over no positive response from the municipal authorities in Mumbai, whom he accused of keeping IPS officer Vinay Tiwari in virtual house arrest, despite being informed about the adverse remarks made by Supreme Court against their action.
According to Bihar police, IPS mess was officially sought for the stay of Tiwari but the senior IPS officer was not provided with this facility and when Tiwari himself arranged a guesthouse then he was taken by BMC officials for home quarantine
It is to be noted that IPS Vinay Tiwari had gone to Mumbai to probe the actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Tiwari reached Mumbai from Patna on Sunday (August 2) to probe the case.
