03 Oct 2020: AIIMS panel rules out murder theory in Sushant's case: Report
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was not murdered and it was a case of suicide, a team of forensic experts from Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) reportedly told the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in their final report.
Earlier, the 34-year-old movie star's family and many fans had alleged he was poisoned and strangled.
Here are more details on this.
Case: Sushant was found dead at Mumbai home in June
Sushant, a rising star of Hindi cinema, was found dead at his apartment in Mumbai on June 14.
At the time, the Mumbai Police had said he died by suicide and had been suffering from depression.
His family, however, contested claims of mental illness and accused his girlfriend, actor Rhea Chakraborty, of driving him to suicide.
The case was later transferred to the CBI.
Details: CBI corroborating medical report with their probe
The AIIMS panel, led by Dr. Sudhir Gupta, has completed the examination and closed the file after providing conclusive medico-legal opinion in the case, according to reports.
The AIIMS team, that had been tasked with re-examination of the late actor's autopsy and other medical reports, said the circumstantial evidence also suggested suicide.
The CBI is now corroborating the medical report with their investigation.
