It's been two years now, fans are still waiting with high hopes of getting justice over Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's mysterious death. However, on Monday, the man who conducted Sushant's postmortem made a big revelation. The man claimed that the actor didn't commit suicide but was murdered.
Sushant was found dead in his Bandra home on June 14, 2020. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) continues to investigate the death of the actor, which has been ruled as a suicide. However, CBI has yet not filed any closure report in the case.
However, after two years, Roopkumar Shah, the mortuary worker, who was present during the postmortem of the actor has made the shocking claim during an interview with TV9 Marathi.
"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 post-mortem, we learnt that he was Sushant. There were several marks on his body and two or three marks on his neck as well," Shah was quoted as saying.
Further, Shah added, "The postmortem needed to be recorded but higher authorities were asked to only click pictures of the body. Hence, we did as per their order."
Moreover, Shah also alleged that even though he had informed the authorities that Sushant was murdered, he was asked to work 'as per the rules.'
"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," Shah said.
Shah also said that it 'should have been videographed'. As per the postmortem report, there were 'beating marks' and 'injury marks' on the body, he said.
Reacting to the claims, SSR's lawyer Vikas Singh said that though he will not be able to comment on it, he maintains that it was not a simple suicide as there was a conspiracy behind it.
The Times of India quoted Singh as 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 conspiracy behind it. And only CBI will be able to unravel the conspiracy behind his death."
