Sushant Singh Rajput Case | AIIMS forensic panel rules out murder theories, CBI to probe 'abetment to suicide' charge: Report
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The AIIMS forensic panel, in its report to the CBI probing the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, has ruled out theories of murder by poisoning and strangling as alleged by the late actor's family and their lawyer, according to a NDTV report.
The report further quoted sources saying that the central probe agency will now be proving the 'abetment to suicide' angle in the case - a charge listed by Bihar Police in the FIR lodged based on the complaint by the late actor's father.
The Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) was tasked by the CBI to forensically examine the crime scene for any evidence of foul play in the death.
The Mumbai Police, citing the autopsy done during the initial investigation, had ruled that it was a case of suicide. However, allegations, murder theories and claims by the actor's family raised doubts on the initial probe.
Last month, the CBI had said that it was conducting professional investigation into the case, while noting that "no aspect was ruled out".
"The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is conducting professional investigation related to death of Sushant Singh Rajput in which all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as of date. Investigation is continuing," the CBI said in a statement last Monday.
The clarification from the CBI had come after Sushant Singh Rajput's family lawyer Vikas Singh accused the central probe agency of "delaying the matter" and accused that it is taking the case in a "different direction".
Sushant Singh Rajput had allegedly committed suicide on June 14 at his Bandra residence in Mumbai. The actor was reportedly suffering from depression and was undergoing treatment over the last few months. His family, however, alleged foul play in his death, following which the Supreme Court handed the probe to the CBI.
