According to the latest update in Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, has reportedly ‘hinted’ at suicide and not murder. The medical institute has apparently dismissed theories about strangling and poisoning as well. A team of four doctors from AIIMS was asked to study the report of the autopsy. Reportedly, SSR’s viscera received by them was very less in quantity and degenerative.
Accept the facts, says actor Rahul Jaittly
Actor Rahul Jaittly, last seen in Heer Ranjha, believes the new development in SSR’s case is a ray of hope for the family. He adds, “SSR’s family members deserve to know the truth more than anyone else. And if AIIMS has given the report, which is ruling out murder, then we too have to accept the facts as they are. Investigation and law do not run on emotions, and it is about putting two-and-two together. I have full faith in agencies involved in the investigation.” He adds, “It is true that the investigators had to run in all directions to rule out every possibility that existed. May God give the strength to people to accept the truth, whether it is a murder or a suicide; it has been hard these past few months.” (Inputs by Sheetal)
Kangana Ranaut continues to tweet
- “With the latest progress we need answers to a few questions. 1) SSR repeatedly spoke about big production houses banning him. Who are these people who conspired against him? 2) Why the media spread false news about him being a rapist? 3) Why was Mahesh Bhatt doing his psychoanalysis?”
- Young and extraordinary individuals don’t just wake up one fine day and kill themselves. Sushant said he was being bullied and outcast, he feared for his life, he said movie mafia banned him and harassed him; he was mentally affected by being falsely accused of rape #AIIMS
However, AIIMS panel led by Dr Sudhir Gupta has finally completed the examination and closed the file after giving conclusive medico-legal opinion. The CBI is now corroborating the report with their investigation. “There were no injuries on the body other than of hanging. There were no marks of struggle/scuffle on the body and clothes of the deceased,” says Dr Sudhir Gupta, chairman of AIIMS Forensic Medical Board formed in Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
SSR’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti is also hopeful of getting justice. After AIIMS report was out, Shweta took to Twitter and wrote: “We Will Win!”
Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing Sushant’s father, had previously claimed that an AIIMS doctor had told him that the ligature marks on Sushant’s neck were consistent with strangulation. Addressing a press conference, Vikas had said, “AIIMS doctor told me that Sushant’s death was by strangulation.” But now, reports confirm that it was a case of suicide. The report further states that CBI is likely to continue its probe into abetment to suicide as Sushant Singh Rajput’s family had filed a case with Bihar police against Rhea Chakraborty and others.
A source shares, “All aspects are still open in the probe; if any evidence comes to light proving otherwise, Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (murder) will be added, but nothing has come up in 45 days of the probe.”
Fans seek justice
Meanwhile, Sushant’s fans continue seeking justice for the late actor. Hundreds of SSR fans gathered at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on October 2 to kick-start a three-day-long hunger strike seeking justice for Sushant. Since Friday, social media has #Revolution4SSR and #HungerStrike4SSR trending on Twitter.
While the hunger strike will continue today (Sunday) as well, Saturday saw #302ForSSRKillers making its way into the Twitter trending list. Fans are not satisfied with the AIIMS report and demand CBI to solve the mystery behind Sushant’s death. SSR’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti is also hopeful of getting justice. After AIIMS report was out, Shweta took to Twitter and wrote: “We Will Win!”
If at one point the whole Bollywood industry was supporting the case and showcased solidarity, today, but for a few stray voices, no one wants to speak about it.
Taking a jibe at the state of affairs, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma in a tweet said, “Now that AIIMS ruled out murder in SSR case and if CBI also does the same, I guess the next demand will be for a CIA or a MOSSAD investigation.”
