Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai residence on June 14, 2020. The Mumbai Police determined actor’s death as suicide. The Medical Board of All India Institute of Medical Sciences, in its report to CBI in October 2020, designated actor’s death as suicide and ruled out any struggle marks on actor’s body. The CBI, however, remains tight-lipped about its findings in the case and is yet to submit its charge sheet in the matter.
