"There is a massive difference between murder and suicide."
A shocking revelation has been made by Roopkumar Shah, an employee of Cooper Hospital, where Sushant Singh Rajput’s post-mortem was conducted after his death, which was recorded as suicide.
Shah in an interview with TV9 Marathi revealed that Sushant Singh Rajput was ‘murdered’ and did not commit ‘suicide’. Talking in Hindi about the autopsy, the team staff member said talking to ANI:
“I was on duty on the 14/15th (of June 2020) and I was working. And at that time a VIP body arrived.
“With a VIP body arriving was a lot of police personnel accompanying it.
“Being VIP or even not we still commenced our work. It was about 11-12 at night.
“When we looked at the body, we realised it was Sushant Singh Rajput’s body.
“During the examination, we discussed and were told it was suicide.
“However, I went to see my senior to raise concerns over it being suicide. As I was not convinced.
“As I have over 28 years of experience in this work and have examined over 50 bodies.
“But my senior said we will discuss this later and I felt ignored.”
Shah then explained further as to why his opinion is that it was not suicide, saying:
“After examining the body and the marks on it. The marks on the neck were not those after a ‘hanging’.
“There were other two or three marks on his body which looked like some kind of a struggle.
“Marks were on his feet and hands and body which did not add up.
“Look I cannot tell you how he was killed but marks were of a different kind and a fracture was present.”

In the revelation that Shah initially made to TV9 Marathi, he said:
“There is a massive difference between murder and suicide.
“After seeing the dead body, one immediately knows whether it is murder or suicide.
“Sushant had marks on his neck, it looked like murder. The body was punched and bore injury marks.
“A person who commits suicide is not punched to such an extent as Sushant was.”
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead on June 14, 2020, at his Bandra apartment. The actor was just aged 34.
Reports giving the reason for his demise as suicide circulated across the media. But fans and family were and are still not convinced by the claim that it was murder.
Hence, the reason for his death still remains a mystery. But this revelation by Roopkumar Shah from the autopsy team has now raised more questions and concerns about the actor’s death.
Reactions on social media have turned into a frenzy with demands for justice and the truth.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s lawyer Vikas Singh reacted to the revelation by saying:
“I will not be able to comment on the same as the sisters have not told me about it.
“But I maintain that Sushant Singh Rajput’s death was not a simple suicide as there was a conspiracy behind it.
“And only CBI will be able to unravel the conspiracy behind his death.”
Roopkumar Shah feels the truth will never come out and this is why he approached the media now. Praising Sushant, Shah said:
“Sushant was a great actor. He has acted in many films and if such a person commits suicide, we will handle his dead body properly. How can a person beaten on his hands and feet hang himself?”
Further to this new revelation by Shah, in a TV interview, Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh alleged that the powerful political family of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has involvement in his son’s death.
His father also mentioned that Rhea Chakraborty, Sushant’s ex-partner was also “bad news” for his son. But he showed his faith in the government to hopefully find the truth, saying:
“Whatever the government will do will be right. I have full faith in this government. It’s been 2.5 years and we deserve to know the truth.”
