Mumbai: 145 days after handling the case investigating the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the Central Bureau of Investigation has said that it is looking into all aspects of the case and nothing has been dismissed.
In October, a team of doctors from Delhi’s AIIMS told the CBI in its opinion that the actor was not murdered and that it was a case of suicide, rejecting poison and throttle theories by the actor’s family and his lawyer.
BJP MP Subramanian Swamy wrote a letter to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) asking about the status of the investigation, after which the PMO sent the letter to the CBI.
In his reply, Mr Swamy, the investigating agency of the centre said, “The CBI is conducting an in-depth and professional investigation using the latest scientific techniques. During the investigation, all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as on date.”
The CBI stated, “During the investigation, advanced mobile forensic devices including the latest software have been used for extraction and analysis of relevant data available in digital devices and also for the analysis of dump data of relevant cell tower locations related to the case has gone.”
The CBI said, “During the investigation, all the witnesses have been examined to understand the circumstances and apprehensions raised by the complainant and his family members and other independent sources. A thorough and thorough investigation has been done in this regard,” CBI said. It said, “The investigation team along with senior officials visited all the places – Aligarh, Faridabad, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Manesar and Patna.”
“Investigation teams and senior officials have visited the site of the incident on several occasions for better understanding of the circumstances related to the incident. Experts from CFSL, New Delhi, considered the best in their field in India, also visited and examined the place. The experts also carried out simulation exercise,” the CBI said, referring to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory.
The 34-year-old actor was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai on 14 June. Though the Mumbai Police, based on the autopsy, termed it on social media as suicide, wild speculation and a campaign for justice, Mr Rajput’s family claims raised suspicion and became part of the overall CBI probe.
