Bharatiya Janata Party Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on 12 October raised another question in Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.
While commenting on a media report on a statement of the actor’s family lawyer Vikas Singh, Swamy asked why was the glass from which Sushant Singh Rajput drank orange juice on the morning of his death not preserved?
“No wonder Mumbai Police did not seal his apartment as is mandatory in unnatural deaths,” Swamy wrote on Twitter.
As per Sushant Singh Rajput’s staff present in the house on 14 June, the late actor had taken coconut water and orange juice in breakfast. He was found dead in the afternoon in his Bandra apartment.
Notably, senior advocate Vikas Singh has urged the Central Bureau of Investigation to look into the conduct of Dr Sudhir Gupta, who headed the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) panel that re-examined the actor’s death.
While addressing a press conference earlier this month, Vikas Singh said that Dr Sudhir Gupta shared a good rapport with him. He revealed that when he shared pictures of Sushant’s body with Dr Gupta, the latter said that it is 200% a case of strangulation and not suicide.
Sushant’s autopsy was conducted out by three doctors of Mumbai’s Cooper Hospital on the night of 14 June. In August, the CBI had roped in a team of AIIMS’ forensic department for medico-legal opinion into the Sushant’s death. In its report, the forensic team has reportedly hinted that Sushant died by suicide, dismissing the claims of ‘strangling’ and ‘poisoning’ made by the actor’s family and their lawyer.
“The AIIMS conduct is questionable, their doctors come to TV channels to share the opinion when the report is not shared in the public,” said Vikas Singh. He added that such statements by the team of doctors violate the Medical Council of India’s ethical guidelines.
