The forensic department of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in its report to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has hinted that the death of Sushant Singh Rajput was suicide and not murder.

Sushant Singh Rajput Case LIVE Updates: Kshitij Ravi Prasad, the former Dharmatic Entertainment executive producer arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a Bollywood-drugs case, has told a special court here that he has been “coerced into falsely implicating" actors Ranbir Kapoor, Dino Morea and Arjun Rampal by the agency officials. The NCB has dismissed these allegations as “false and baseless". According to the NCB, Prasad had procured drugs from another accused Karmjeet and his associates. The agency had earlier arrested actor and late Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and others in connection with the Bollywood-drugs probe. She was described by the NCB as “an active member of a drug syndicate" and accused of organising drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput.

Meanwhile, the AIIMS forensic panel has ruled out a murder claim in the Sushant Singh Rajput case in its “conclusive medico-legal" opinion to CBI, dismissing the theories of poisoning and strangling. “There were no injuries on the body other than of hanging. There were no marks of struggle/scuffle on the body and clothes of the deceased," said Dr Sudhir Gupta, Chairman of AIIMS Forensic Medical Board formed in Sushant Singh Rajput death case.

Poisoning was just one of the theories in circulation after doubts were raised by the actor’s family and others who have been contesting the Mumbai Police assessment, based on the autopsy, that Sushant died by suicide. As per sources, the CBI is likely to continue its probe into “abetment to suicide". In a statement on Monday, the CBI said it was conducting a “professional investigation" where “all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out".

Sushant’s family, friends, and hundreds of thousands of fans have raised questions about how he died. The CBI investigation began after the family filed a case accusing the actor’s purported girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty of mentally harassing him, medicating him, exploiting him for money, and abetting his suicide. Rhea has denied the late actor’s father’s charges.
