The Central Bureau of Investigation clarified on Monday that the investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has been conducted professionally and the agency hasn’t ruled out any aspect of the probe till date.
“The Central Bureau of Investigation is conducting a professional investigation related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput in which all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as of date,” the CBI statement read.
The development came after the Rajput family’s lawyer Vikas Singh questioned the pace of the CBI probe. Last week, Singh expressed his frustration on Twitter over CBI’s delay in taking decision to convert abetment to suicide to murder of SSR.
Further, the lawyer claimed an AIIMS team had long back shared Rajput’s autopsy report indicating death by strangulation and not suicide. He also alleged that the probe had been diverted to drugs with Narcotic Control Bureau (NCB) conducting a fashion parade of Bollywood stars.
However, as per reports, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) had denied the claim by the lawyer. Also the forensic team probing the death of the actor is yet to submit its report to CBI.
The actor was found hanging in his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14. The CBI took over the case on August 19. After more than a month since taking over the investigation, no major announcement has been made. The recent clarifications came as a response amid calls for an update on the progress in the case.
