Sushant’s death was originally ruled a suicide by the Mumbai Police, before the case was taken over by the CBI. The CBI is likely to continue its probe into “abetment to suicide”, NDTV reported.
The report has been QUESTIONED? ;
The report questioned the absence of the timing of death in the autopsy report and pointed towards the dimly-lit post mortem room at Cooper Hospital, sources said. The report ruled out the poisoning angle in the death of the late actor.
Sushant Singh Rajput autopsy was carried out by three doctors of Cooper Hospital on the night of June 14. The source further said that the missing timing of death was another point where the doctors have raised concerns apart from uncertainty about the substance that was found in his stomach.

Sushant family lawyer Vikas Singh:
Sushant Singh Rajput family lawyer Vikas Singh said, “The medical report and the charge sheet may say different things, so the medical report cannot be the standalone basis for proceeding in a case.”
Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing Sushant’s father, had previously claimed that an AIIMS doctor had told him that the ligature marks on Sushant’s neck were consistent with strangulation. “AIIMS doctor told me that Sushant’s death was by strangulation,” he had said in a press conference.
An AIIMS source had earlier said that the Forensic Board chaired by Dr Sudhir Gupta has submitted its conclusive report with the CBI. The source said that in the conclusive report submitted with the agency, doctors have pointed out the dim lighting in the post mortem room of Cooper Hospital.
