Gagandeep Gambhir, an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer of 2004 batch, has been appointed to oversee the Sushant Singh Rajput’s murder-suicide case, along with senior IPS officer Manoj Shashidhar.
After Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh and the Bihar police alleged a cover-up by the Mumbai Police, the death case was handed over to the central agency by the Bihar government. On Thursday, CBI filed a case into Rajput’s death naming his former girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty and four other members of her family or known associates apart from unknown persons as accused.
Gagandeep Gambhir, along with senior IPS officer Manoj Shashidhar, will supervise the case which is being probed by a special investigation team under the superintendent of Police Nupur Prasad.

Gagandeep, who belongs to Bihar, has been a bright and hardworking student from the beginning. Gagandeep moved to Punjab after her Class 10th exam. Post which, she graduated from Punjab University as a batch topper.
Later, she also served the nation as an SSP (senior superintendent of police) in Gujarat. She has been with CBI for the last one and a half years. Because of her unparalleled capabilities, she has been a part of investigating team probing many high-profile cases, including the big scams. She has worked on sand mining case against former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, the Srijan scam and the money-laundering case against Upendra Rai, a journalist.
IPS Officer Gagandeep Gambhir is an expert on scam investigations. She has been handpicked for this assignment because the prime accused (sources say) will be Rhea Chakraborty and a lady police officer will be needed to interrogate her. She is undoubtedly best suited for the role
