Sushant Singh Rajput Case: 'Investigation is still on, all aspects are being looked meticulously'


Mumbai, Oct 05: Days after the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) ruled out the possibility of the murder of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday said that its investigation is "still continuing and all the aspects are being looked meticulously".

'CBI investigation related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput is still continuing and all the aspects are being looked meticulously," said Spokesperson, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The AIIMS medical board on Saturday stated that Rajput died by suicide and it was not a murder.

"There was no injury on the body other than that of hanging. Also, there was no mark of struggle and scuffle. The ligature mark on the neck was consistent with hanging," AIIMS' forensic chief Dr Sudhir Gupta had said on Saturday.

The Mumbai police's probe stands vindicated with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) ruling out murder in the actor Sushant Singh Rajput case, city police commissioner Param Bir Singh said on Saturday.

Some people with "vested interests" targeted Mumbai police without knowing anything about the investigation, he told PTI.

Reacting to the news, Singh said the city police's probe was professional, and doctors at the Cooper Hospital in the city who performed autopsy had also done their job thoroughly.

"We all stand vindicated by these findings of AIIMS," the police commissioner said.

The Supreme Court had upheld transfer of the FIR lodged by Bihar police in the Rajput case and not the Mumbai police's investigation, Singh said.

"The court didn't find any fault with our investigation," he said.

    Singh further said that the city police had submitted investigation report to the apex court in a sealed cover and it was seen by only six persons - the investigating officer, senior police inspector, deputy commissioner of police, commissioner of police, advocate general of the state and the judge.

    "Without knowing anything about our investigation and without having seen our report some vested interests criticized our investigation," he said.

    Rajput (34) was found hanging at his flat in Mumbai on June 14. A section of media had hinted that it could be a murder.

    The CBI had taken over the probe from Bihar Police into the alleged abetment to suicide case filed by the actor's father K K Singh in Patna against Rajput's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her family.
