Sushant Singh Rajput was not murdered: AIIMS report to CBI



AIIMS forensic panel which was set up to assist the CBI in Sushant Singh Rajput's death investigation has ruled out murder claims in its findings submitted to the probe agency.

New Delhi: Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died due to suicide and he was not murdered, said AIIMS forensic panel in its report to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Clearing the air over Sushant’s death mystery, the AIIMS forensic panel, which was set up to assist CBI in the investigation has ruled out murder claims in its findings submitted to the probe agency.

The panel of doctors from AIIMS in their report dismissed the theories of poisoning and strangling floated by Sushant Singh Rajput’s family and lawyer.

Sources said the AIIMS Panel has completed the examination and closed the file after giving conclusive medico-legal opinion in this case and the CBI is corroborating the report with their investigation.

They also said the AIIMS panel has concurred with the opinion of the Mumbai hospital that carried out the autopsy. The Mumbai hospital’s autopsy had found “asphyxia due to hanging” as the cause of death. Sources added that circumstantial evidence also suggests that it was a case of suicide and not murder. The 34-year-old movie star was found dead on June 14 in his Mumbai apartment.

The central investigating agency is likely to continue its probe into “abetment to suicide”, the charge that was originally listed by the Bihar Police, sources said. Even the sources in CBI said that so far no evidence has been gathered which can hint that it was a case of murder. For now, abetment to suicide and other charges in the FIR are being probed. If at any instance, murder angle is found, it will be included in the charges.

CBI so far has questioned over 20 people in its 57 days of the probe and it has forensically examined the seized laptop, hard drives, digital camera and two mobile phones in the case.
