"And one day he ended his life by hanging."
After the AIIMS forensic team ruled out the murder angle in relation to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, political party Shiv Sena has now criticised the late actor.
The party claimed that Sushant was a “characterless person who could not accept failure”.
In their newspaper Saamana, Shiv Sena also slammed those who doubted the Mumbai Police’s intentions.
The editorial had said of Sushant:
“He was incapable of controlling his off-track vehicle. As a result of this, he started consuming drugs.
“And one day he ended his life by hanging. Mumbai Police was meticulously following the case. They are the best police team in the world.
“But Sushant Singh Rajput’s family was used for selfish politics. The centre roped-in CBI with bullet-train speed.”
AIIMS Forensic Head Dr Sudhir Gupta had concluded that Sushant’s death was a case of suicide by hanging.
The CBI is continuing with its investigation, looking at an abetment to suicide angle.
Shiv Sena also stated that Sushant’s connection with drugs was revealed within 24 hours of the CBI investigation.
“If there was a provision to conduct trial after death, Sushant Singh Rajput would have been tried for consuming drugs.”
Shiv Sena’s Rajya Sabha leader Sanjay Raut also stated that the party would be “speechless” if people continued to question the CBI’s investigation.
He claimed that since Sushant died, there has been a conspiracy to defame the Maharashtra government and the Mumbai Police.
Raut said: “It (AIIMS report) is as per the reports of Dr Sudhir Gupta, who is the head of AIIMS Forensic Medical Board in Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
“He doesn’t have any political connection or any links with the Shiv Sena.
“Since the very beginning, in this case, there has been a conspiracy to malign Maharashtra government and Mumbai Police.
“If now CBI inquiry is also not being trusted, then we’re speechless.”
Raut made the comments amid plans Sushant’s family will request a new forensic team to be formed after they alleged the AIIMS report was inconclusive.
The family lawyer, Vikas Singh, said: “Highly perturbed with AIIMS report. Going to request CBI Director to constitute a fresh Forensic team.
“How could AIIMS team give a conclusive report in the absence of the body, that too on such shoddy post mortem done by Cooper hospital wherein time of death also not mentioned.”
The lawyer had previously claimed that an AIIMS doctor had told him that Sushant died after being strangled and not by suicide.
However, Dr Gupta refuted the claims.
