All India Institute Of Medical Science has ruled Sushant Singh Rajput’s death as suicide and not murder after re-evaluating the actor’s post-mortem report.
Many, including Sushant’s family, had been urging the Central Bureau of Investigation to initiate a murder probe in the case.
Sushant was found dead in his apartment on June 14.
His family has accused his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty of abetting his suicide and misappropriating his funds.
Rhea is currently in jail, on drugs-related charges pertaining to the case.
Dr. Sudhir Gupta, who led the AIIMS’ panel says there were no injuries on the body other than injuries of suicide and there were no marks of struggle or scuffle on the body and clothes of the deceased.
He adds that the presence of any seductive material was not detected by the toxicology lab and the complete examination of ligature mark over the neck was consistent with suicide.
Sushant’s death was originally ruled a suicide by the Mumbai Police, before the case was taken over by the CBI.
NDTV reports that the CBI is likely to continue its probe into “abetment to suicide”.
Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing Sushant’s father, had previously claimed that an AIIMS doctor had told him that the ligature marks on Sushant’s neck were consistent with strangulation.
