Days after a team of doctors from Delhi’s AIIMS said that actor Sushant Singh Rajput was not murdered and that it is a case of suicide, his family has written to the CBI chief, seeking the formation of a fresh medical board to review the autopsy and viscera reports by a Mumbai hospital. The family, through its lawyers, has also accused the head of the AIIMS panel of being “unethical” and “unprofessional”.
A team of doctors from Delhi’s AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences), in its opinion to the CBI, dismissed the theories of poisoning and strangling floated by the Sushant Singh Rajput ‘s family and their lawyer.
“The AIIMS report, if at all, could have only specified the cause of death of Sushant Singh Rajput, i.e. by hanging and could not have gone to say that it is a case of suicide because that is something which only the CBI can decide after a complete investigation in the matter,” the letter reads.
The lawyer has recorded objections to the said AIIMS report highlighting that AIIMS was not doing a post-mortem but was only to express its opinion with regard to the post-mortem done by Cooper as AIIMS did not have the privilege of examining the body of Rajput and thus forming a firsthand opinion about the cause of his death.
It is also stated that Dr. Sudhir Gupta has been giving media interviews about the sensitive case right from day one about the dubious nature of the autopsy conducted by Cooper Hospital and Maharashtra Police for hurried post-mortem and contamination of the scene of crime.
Singh highlights that recently Dr. Gupta had selectively leaked “incriminating content” of the report submitted to CBI “irresponsibly commenting that the death of Sushant Singh Rajput is conclusively a case of suicide and there is no foul play” and that “the said leak is aimed at creating doubts in the mind of people, bailing out agencies who have not done their job as per rules and standard protocols, benefitting the culprits and derailing the course of ongoing investigation”.
