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 Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was suicide and not murder. However, CBI is yet to issue an official statement. Recently an audiotape of Dr Sudhir Gupta, who is heading the team of forensic panel emerged. In a tweet, SSR’s sister Shweta demanded an explanation to Gupta’s initial reaction to the death probe.
The forensic team in its report rejected the claims of ‘poisoning’ and ‘strangling’ made by the actor’s family and their lawyer. The doctors of the AIIMS refused to share further details as the matter is sub judice.
SSR’s family lawyer Vikas Singh has reacted to AIIMS report submitted to CBI wherein the medical board examining the actor’s death has ruled out murder as the cause. “Highly perturbed with AIIMS report. Going to request CBI Director to constitute a fresh Forensic team. How could AIIMS team give a conclusive report in the absence of the body, that too on such shoddy post mortem done by Cooper hospital wherein time of death also not mentioned,” Vikas wrote on social media.
Author-screenwriter Kanika Dhillon on Monday expressed concern over actress Rhea Chakraborty still being in jail.
"While d conspiracy theories r being mulled over- A young woman is still in Jail #rheachakroborty @Tweet2Rhea CBI has clearly stated no foul play... how long n under what charges can she be kept in jail- And denied bail?? @NCWIndia can anyone give some answers pls?!" tweeted Kanika, tagging the official account of the National Commission for Women.
Kanika's tweet comes at a time when the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) forensic team has stated that Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput had committed suicide, ruling out murder.

Sandip Ssingh Reacts to AIIMS Report on Sushant Singh Rajput's Death
After a report from the forensic team of All India Institute Of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) ruled out the possibility of murder in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, film producer Sandip Ssingh said he is waiting for the final word from the Central Bureau of Intelligence (CBI) Special Investigation Team (SIT).
Talking to a media outlet he said: “I don’t know why we start reacting without knowing the absolute facts of the matter. As his friends, family and well-wishers, we wanted a CBI enquiry in the matter. Post that, the NCB enquiry also started. In the interim, a lot of people have spoken out of turn and made a mockery of an on-going investigation by a national agency. While I have read the statement made by Dr Gupta, I wonder why we are not waiting for the CBI to issue a comment or a conclusive statement. We are not ready to wait. The doctor has given his statement but the final word will rest with what the CBI’s enquiry report reveals.”
After AIIMS forensic team has ruled out murder claims in Sushant Singh Rajput's death, late actor's 'Pavitra Rishta' co-star Ankita Lokhande posted 'All Eyes on CBI' hashtag on her Twitter handle. According to AIIMS sources, the forensic team in its report has hinted the death of Sushant as suicide, thus rejecting the claims of 'poisoning' and 'strangling' made by his family and their lawyer.
While Cooper Hospital that conducted the postmortem of Sushant Singh Rajput post his death also concluded that it is a case of death by suicide, questions were raised why the death time wasn't mentioned in the report. However, no clarification was issued.

After an audio tape of Dr Sudhir Gupta, who is heading the forensic panel investigating the death of Sushnt Singh Rajput emerged in media, sources close to AIIMS Forensic tell CNN-News18 the probe report was handed over to the medical board and not to an individual doctor. Citing that it is illegal to publish or broadcast any personal opinion, the team says visual observation can be different from calculated observations after analysing all papers. Forensic report is valid only in black and white under seal of AIIMS doctors which has been given and there's no looking back. Now it is up to investigating agency to accept or reject the report.

BJP, Cong in political dogfight over AIIMS report
A day after an AIIMS report said that Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput had died by suicide, the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party and ruling ally Congress in Maharashtra were locked in a bitter political dogfight over the issue on Sunday. BJP state spokesperson Ram Kadam continued to target the Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition of Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress, alleging it ignored the drug angle probe in the Sushant "murder mystery".
However, the Congress state spokesperson Sachin Sawant hit back saying "even after falling flat on its face, the BJP was attempting to keep its legs in the air, their face is blackened but they are trying to show their hands are clean". Attempting to turn the tables, Sawant said the Maharashtra government has written to the NCB to probe the state BJP's "drugs links", and why or whom one of the involved persons Ssandip Singh had called in the BJP office 53 times.
Contrary to the AIIMS report to CBI, the family of Sushant Singh Rajput claims that the late actor was poisoned. They also raised suspicion over the ligature mark and injuries over SSR's body.

After questioning CBI over it's delay in filing a 'homicide' case in Sushant Singh Rajput's death, the late actor's family lawyer Vikas Singh has raised concerns over the AIIMS medical report that was handed over to the central investigating agency earlier this week.

Besides the CBI probe into the death of Sushant, the Enforcement Directorate and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are probing the money laundering and drugs angles to the case. The NCB had arrested Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sawant in connection with the drug case.
Sushant was found dead on June 14 in the Mont Blanc Apartment in Bandra in Mumbai. His family members raised suspicion of Sushant having been murdered.
The CBI registered a case on August 6 on the notification of the Centre after the Bihar government recommended for a federal agency probe on the complaint of the late actor’s father K.K. Singh.
The CBI team reached Mumbai on August 20, a day after the Supreme Court gave its nod for the federal agency probe. The CBI recorded the statements of several people in the case and also visited his flat, Cooper hospital and Waterstone resort.
The CBI grilled Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, father Indrajit, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda, flatmate Siddharth Pithani, personal staff — Neeraj Singh, Dipesh Sawant and Keshav Bachne. Besides the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are probing the money laundering charge and drugs angle respectively. NCB has also arrested Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sawant in connection with the drug case.
