Sushant Singh Rajput was not murdered and it is a case of suicide, a team of doctors from Delhi's AIIMS has said in its opinion to CBI, sources have told NDTV, dismissing the theories of poisoning and strangling floated by the actor's family and their lawyer. The 34-year-old movie star was found dead on June 14 in his Mumbai apartment. Though the Mumbai police, based on the autopsy, called it a suicide, wild speculation and campaigns of justice on social media and allegations for Sushant Singh Rajput's family raised doubts that became a part of an overall CBI investigation. Sources said the AIIMS Panel has completed the examination and closed the file after giving conclusive medico-legal opinion in this case and the CBI is corroborating the report with their investigation. The CBI is likely to continue its probe into "abetment to suicide", the charge that was originally listed by the Bihar Police, sources said. They also said the AIIMS panel has concurred with the opinion of the Mumbai hospital that carried out the autopsy. The Mumbai hospital's autopsy had found "asphyxia due to hanging" as the cause of death. Sources added that circumstantial evidence also suggests that it was a case of suicide and not murder.
