The viscera report of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has ruled out any foul play in his death, a police official said on Monday. Sushant’s Viscera examination was conducted on the internal organs of the body, primarily those within the chest (as the heart or lungs) in this case of the actor’s suicide.
As the investigation continues for the Mumbai police, who are probing a case of alleged suicide by Rajput, noted the results of the sample report which came “negative.” This confirms that there has been no foul play in Rajput’s death. Kalina-based Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) submitted the report to the Mumbai police team on Sunday. Previously Sushant’s post-mortem results indicated that the 34-year-old actor died due to asphyxiation. Currently, the Cyber report and findings from the forensics team are yet to be submitted.
“It seems it is a suicide case. Now we are collecting evidence from his mobile phone and the cyber department is working on it to find out if messages or videos were deleted from his mobile phone,” said officials.
The police have recorded statements of over 30 people, including filmmakers Mahesh Bhatt, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aditya Chopra and Rumy Jaffery. Karan Johar will also be summoned for questioning this week, ANI quoted the police as saying.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead on June 14 at his flat in Bandra West, Mumbai.
