The AIIMS forensic panel, set up to assist the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the medical investigation into the death case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, has ruled out “murder” claims in its findings submitted to the probe agency.
The five-member team has called it a case of suicide, rejecting the claims of poisoning and strangling made by the actor’s family and their lawyer.
The CBI, which is probing Rajput’s death case, is yet to confirm AIIMS findings, Times Now’s sources said. The central probe agency took over the investigation from Bihar Police after actor’s father KK Singh filed an abetment to suicide case in Patna against Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her family.
The medical board of AIIMS forensic experts, headed by Dr Sudhir Gupta, was set up in August to look into the medical files related to Rajput’s death and study the autopsy and viscera reports.
