Mumbai: The CBI team probing the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput will now be assisted by a forensic team of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi. A team of 4 doctors has been formed under the leadership of Dr Sudhir Gupta, who will give an opinion on Sushant Singh’s autopsy report. AIIMS team will go to Mumbai and cooperate in CBI investigation. This team will study the injury marks on the body of Sushant Singh Rajput. The team will also study whether the actor’s death was a suicide or a murder.
The CBI has sought his medico-legal (medical-legal) opinion in this matter from AIIMS. The decision has been taken a few days after the Supreme Court handed over the investigation to the CBI on the recommendation of the Bihar government. Dr Sudhir Gupta, chairman of the forensic department at AIIMS, said that the CBI will provide him with a report related to the case.
Dr Sudhir Gupta said, ‘CBI is collecting all the reports related to Sushant Singh case and he will send these reports to us soon. We will study the pattern of injuries found on his body based on circumstantial evidence. We will also examine other trace evidence preserved at the time of postmortem to distinguish between the charges of hanging and murder.
The CBI has requested the Forensic Department of AIIMS to review the case and provide a medico-legal opinion. For this, a medical board of forensic experts has been constituted under the chairmanship of Dr Gupta. Another forensic expert from AIIMS Delhi said that the team will also evaluate whether the information revealed in the post-mortem is correct or not. He said that we will see if there is any possibility of any decisive mistake in the report. Dr Gupta and his team have given a medico-legal opinion in high profile cases like Sheena Bora and Sunanda Pushkar.
Questions have been raised regarding the post mortem report
In this case, many kinds of questions are being raised about the postmortem. These questions are why the post mortem was done in a hurried night? Why were the marks of injury on Sushant’s body not mentioned? Why was not the time of death put on the post mortem report? He had drunk the first juice from death, so why was he not informed?
