Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead on June 14 in his apartment in Bandra, Mumbai. The Mumbai police were initially probing the case but then Sushant’s father filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty against cheating, abetment to suicide, and theft after which the case was investigated by Bihar police as well. But due to non-cooperation from Mumbai police to Bihar police, the Bihar government recommended the CBI probe. Rhea filed a petition to transfer the case to Mumbai police but later the Supreme Court handed over the case the CBI.
Recently it was reported that three officers of the CBI who are part of the investigation team in SSR’s death case has revealed independently that they haven’t found any proof of murder so far in the case and they’re probing the case and are focusing on the suicide aspect of the case now and will examine if abetment to suicide can be concluded from the investigation.
By the latest development of the case, forensic sources have refuted the reports of ruling out the murder angle. Republic TV has reported that forensic sources have confirmed the portal that the murder angle had not been dismissed and the reports that suggested this may be planted.
Earlier, AIIMS forensic HoD Dr. Sudhir Gupta had also given his statement to the portal and said that the possibility of murder needs to be examined and they will look into the possibility of murder. However, all probable angles will be thoroughly examined.
AIIMS forensic department was involved in the case after CBI approached the department for its medico-legal opinion in the case.
