Sushant Singh Rajput case: murder or suicide, AIIMS panel submitted report to CBI

The prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) panel in Delhi has submitted its findings on the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. At the request of the Central Bureau of Investigation, a panel was constituted under the chairmanship of Dr. Sudhir Gupta, which investigated Sushant's autopsy and viscera report.

According to sources, 'a detailed meeting took place, during which the panel of doctors of AIIMS submitted its conclusive findings to the CBI.' Sources say the AIIMS panel's findings are being confirmed with the CBI's findings in the last 40 days. The findings of the AIIMS panel will be taken as the opinion of the expert in the case and the doctor will be the prosecution witness.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai flat on 14 June. The police said that it was suicide but there was speculation that it could be a murder. The CBI, which is investigating the case after the approval of the Supreme Court, says that it is looking at all the angles. 

In a statement released by the agency on Monday, it said that it is conducting a professional investigation where all aspects are being looked into and none of the aspects have been dismissed. Last week, Vikas Singh, the lawyer for Sushant's family, had tweeted, "I am disappointed with the CBI which is delaying to convert Sushant's case from suicide to murder. The doctor, who was part of the AIIMS team, told me a long time ago that the pictures I sent indicated 200 percent that it was death due to strangulation, not suicide.

He claimed that a doctor in the AIIMS panel had shared the findings with him. On his claims, Dr. Sudhir Gupta said that the opinion of the panel would be more conclusive on the basis of evidence. He had said, "No conclusive opinion can be formed just by looking at the pictures."
