The death case of Sushant Singh Rajput is becoming increasingly confusing with new developments. The individual who observed the autopsy has now stated that the Bollywood actor did not die by suicide, but was actually murdered.
This has been revealed during an interview given to ANI, by Roopkumar Shah – one of the employees at Cooper Hospital, Mumbai. It was at this hospital where Sushant’s postmortem was performed. As per him,
“Sushant Singh Rajput was murdered, authorities didn’t let us record”
Talking in detail about the post-mortem, Mr. Shah mentioned how authorities forced his hand. He said,
“When Sushant Singh Rajput passed away, we had received five dead bodies in the Cooper Hospital for postmortem. Out of those five bodies, one was a VIP body. When we went to perform a post mortem, we learnt he was Sushant and there were several marks on his body and two to three marks on his neck as well. The postmortem needed to be recorded but higher authorities were asked to only click pics of the body. Hence, we did that as per their order.”
He said he had informed his seniors that it is a case of murder. But his voice was drowned.
“When I saw Sushant’s body for the first time, I quickly informed my seniors that I feel it is not suicide but a murder. I even told them that we should work as per the rules. However, my seniors told me to click pictures as soon as possible and give the body to the cops. Hence, we performed the postmortem in the night only.”
