On Monday, The panel of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) doctors, led by Dr Sudhir Gupta submitted the report of Sushant Singh Rajput’s viscera reports based on the 20 per cent viscera sample available with them after evaluation to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
Notably, This report will help CBI to take investigation further in this matter that whether it was a suicide or murder.
According to India Today, AIIMS report is a major help and “conclusive finding”, however the CBI will take a final call after going through the evidences it has collected so far.
The panel of doctors led by Dr. Sudhir Gupta AIIMS and CBI are in agreement on Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case findings but more deliberations are needed. “There is a need to look into some legal aspects for a logical legal conclusion,” he quoted as saying.
Although, Vikas Singh family lawyer of Sushant Singh Rajput claimed that according to AIIMS doctor’s report the cause of death was “200% strangulation” Vikas Singh had said, “Getting frustrated by the delay in CBI taking a decision to convert abetment to suicide to murder of SSR [Sushant Singh Rajput]. The Doctor who is part of AIIMS team had told me long back that the photos sent by me indicated 200% that it’s death by strangulation and not suicide.”
But, Sudhir Gupta has denied the claims and called them “incorrect”. Dr Sudhir Gupta told India Today, “The investigation is still going on. What he is saying is not correct. We can’t conclude simply on murder or suicide based on just ligature marks and scene of crime. Need more investigation which is still going on and not concluded.”
Where as, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Manshinde reacted to Vikas Singh’s statement. “The Disclosure of a 200 % strangulation conclusion by an AIIMS doctor in the team headed by Dr Gupta in the SSR case, on the basis of photographs, is a dangerous trend. To keep the investigations impartial and free from inference, the CBI must constitute a new medical board. The agencies are being pressurised to reach a pre-determined result for obvious reasons on the eve of Bihar Elections. We have seen the VRS of DG Pandey unfolding a few days back. There should not be a repetition of such steps.”
Notably, The initial investigation shows suicide was the cause of death. Sushant Singh Rajput’s autopsy report also confirmed asphyxia due to hanging as the cause of death.
The Investigation by CBI has not yet disclosed anything neither any clues that could suggest otherwise. CBI will rely mostly on The AIIMS report to probe the death case. CBI was in close touch with the AIIMS doctors to decide the direction of the investigation.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s photos were circulated on Social media after he died. In one of the photos, a green kurta and a bathrobe belt can be seen prominently. However, Mumbai police claimed that reports said that the actor hanged himself with the help of the green kurta but the questions related to presence of bathrobe belt in his room kept arising.
The viscera, which usually contains internal parts of the body including liver, pancreas and intestine, was preserved in a bottle and handed over to the police. Later the viscera sample was sent for testing to the forensic science laboratories to rule out poisoning or intoxication in the event of death.
The viscera received by the Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology at the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) is “of very less quantity and degenerated”, highly placed sources in AIIMS revealed to IANS.
“The viscera has degenerated. It makes chemical and toxicological analysis really difficult,” the AIIMS source said on Sushant Singh Rajput case investigation.
