Doctors who signed autopsy reports of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput are receiving threatening calls and people are abusing them. Screenshots of the autopsy report are being posted on social media which have the names and mobile numbers of the five doctors at Cooper Hospital, who performed the autopsy of the actor.
Dr. Shailesh Mohite, President of the Medico-Legal Association of Maharashtra said that he has been receiving such phones and messages in the past few days. According to some reports, the callers are accusing the doctors of taking a bribe to hide the truth in the report.
Dr. Mohite said, “Dr. Pinakin Gujjar, Dean of Cooper Hospital has told me about the harassment of the five doctors who signed the postmortem report. Similar phone calls are coming to the hospital’s landline numbers.”
Dr. Mohite said, “I think there should be strong legal action against such trolls. Some of them have obtained personal details of these doctors and have put screenshots on social media platforms.”
He said, “It is unfortunate that doctors have had to go through this harassment and their families are being targeted.”
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in mysterious circumstances at his Bandra residence on 14 June. The Supreme Court yesterday (19th August) handed over the investigation of the case to CBI.
