No direct evidence of murder has been found in the CFSL report in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, ABP News has reported. The only mainstream media house to claim so, ABP News says that the forensic body has ruled out Sushant’s death by murder after reconstructing the scene of the suspected crime.
Entertainment news website SpotboyE has quoted the ABP News report while a Google search with keywords “sushant cfsl” yields no result from the last 24 hours from any other mainstream media house.
The said Hindi news website says CFSL investigators considered Sushant’s death one caused by “partial hanging”, which is the case with most incidents of suicide.
According to the report, Sushant Singh Rajput was ambidextrous, but based on the statements of the people living in the late actor’s apartment, he was “practically right-handed”.
The CFSL analysis mentions the condition of the lump on Sushant’s right hand and the ligature mark on the neck. The forensic body referring to the lump, ABP News says, has opined that a person with his right hand is capable for hanging oneself.
The “Selection of Hanging Material and Its Analysis” report of the CFSL says that Sushant had used the cloth recovered on the spot for hanging.
The “Probability and Proximity of Cloth Selection Report” of the CFSL talks of the chances that Sushant and his falt-mates knew the tool was good enough to hang him.
The reference anatomic location of applied force in hanging is under CFSL investigation too. The report, says ABP News, mentions the magnitude, duration and area of the force applied in hanging. The CFSL will share this analysis of the force distribution around Sushant Singh Rajput’s neck with the CBI.
Meanwhile, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), which has re-examined Sushant’s cause of death by studying his viscera, did not submit its report to the CBI today. As Sirf News had reported on 16 September, the chances of the AIIMS reaching an incontrovertible conclusion from the viscera are slim because of the delay Mumbai Police had caused in sending the body for postmortem.
Confirming Sirf News‘ medical analysis of the situation, the AIIMS team of forensic scientists suggested on 20 September that the viscera extracted from the late actor’s body was not preserved properly. The viscera received by the Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology at the AIIMS, the team of doctors said, was “of very less quantity and degenerated”.
