Reacting to the AIIMS report ruling out the murder of Sushant Singh Rajput, Shiv Sena on Monday said that it was “speechless” if people still questioned the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI’s) probe into the case, reported Hindustan Times (HT).
Sena leader Sanjay Raut alleged that since the beginning there has been a conspiracy to malign the Maharashtra government and the Mumbai Police, which were earlier investigating Rajput’s death, HT reported.
“It (AIIMS report) is as per the reports of Dr. Sudhir Gupta, who is the head of AIIMS Forensic Medical Board in Sushant Singh Rajput death case. He doesn’t have any political connection or any links with the Shiv Sena,” Raut said on the AIIMS report saying that the 34-year-old actor died by suicide, according to news agency ANI.
Raut’s remarks came in the backdrop of the statement of Rajput’s family to request CBI to form a new forensic team alleging the AIIMS team’s report was inconclusive.
“Highly perturbed with AIIMS report. Going to request CBI Director to constitute a fresh Forensic team. How could the AIIMS team give a conclusive report in the absence of the body, that too on such shoddy post mortem done by Cooper hospital wherein time of death also not mentioned,” Vikas Singh, the lawyer of Rajput’s father KK Singh, wrote on Twitter?
The lawyer had previously claimed that a doctor who was part of the AIIMS panel had told him “long back” that the actor’s photos indicated that it was death by strangulation and not suicide, HT reported.
