    Sushant's family lawyer Vikas Singh LIVE on IndiaTV

    Speaking about CBI's probe, advocate Vikas Singh told India TV, "I never doubted CBI's investigating capability. my worries arose when the team reached Delhi to meet AIIMS doctors. Only after their joint meeting, it will become clear whether it was a murder or suicide. since there is no murderer involved this meeting was important. CBI's work became difficult when Mumbai police in the early days did not investigate the case properly. I know the officials must be facing difficulties since a lot of evidence are not there, fingerprints are not there, I don't know the photographs were taken.  

    As soon as the CBI meeting with AIIMS experts will happen, the case will move further. The statement from CBI that came today has assured us that something will definitely take place next."
