"The Central Bureau of Investigation is conducting a professional investigation related to death of Shri Sushant Singh Rajput in which all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as of date", CBI said in a statement.

Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer Satish Maneshinde said in his official statement, "The Disclosure of a 200% Conclusion by an AIIMS Doctor in the team headed by Dr Gupta in the SSR case, on the basis of photographs is a risky trend". The CBI asked AIIMS to work on the case after Sushant's investigation was transferred to them on August 6. "To keep investigation impartial, CBI must constitute new Medical Board". We have seen the VRS of DGP Pandey unfolding few days back.

As far as the narcotics angle is concerned, the senior advocate further claimed that such a case can be made only if certain quantity of drugs is seized from someone.

"The Doctor who is part of AIIMS team had told me long back that the photos sent by me indicated 200 per cent that it's death by strangulation and not suicide", Singh tweeted.

Four states report record number of new COVID-19 cases
Of the cases reported today, 23 are in Galway, the same amount as in Donegal, and behind Dublin (212), and Cork (54). On Saturday, Wisconsin set a new record for a single-day increase in positive COVID-19 cases, with 2,817 new cases.

Sushant was found dead at his Bandra residence on June 14.

A friend and former staff member of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, have chose to go on a hunger strike from October 2, Gandhi Jayanti, over the "delays" in the probe carried out by the Central Bureau of Investigation. The CBI has said that it has not reached any conclusion in the death case yet and that all aspects are under investigation. He added that the only reason behind the hunger strike is that they want answers from the CBI and justice for their friend. The meeting happened for over two hours, after which the doctors submitted the forensic report to the CBI. He flew from Delhi to Mumbai on Sunday to meet NCB officers and was briefed on the drugs cases the agency had registered last month after the ED wrote to it following the alleged chats of several Bollywood celebrities purportedly discussing drugs.

Sushant Singh Rajput's family has accused Rhea Chakraborty of taking money from him, medicating him and playing a role in his death.

On Friday, Sushant's family lawyer said, "The family feels that the probe is being taken in a different direction".
