BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy claims the Ministry of Health was not kept in loop about the AIIMS report pertaining to investigation in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
"I have finished conversing with the Health Secretary on my five questions on the alleged AIIMS Team Report which (news channel) claimed held the SSR case was according to autopsy report one of suicide. The Ministry was not kept in the loop so now I will talk to concerned specialists," Swamy tweeted on Tuesday.
The questions he has raised are: Whether the AIIMS team did a postmortem on the body of Sushant or was only forming an opinion about the postmortem report done already by the doctors of Cooper Hospital; Was Dr Sudhir Gupta advised by higher authorities to give interviews before the AIIMS Special team report was submitted; did the AIIMS team examine the evidence of destruction, the postmortem by the doctors at Cooper Hospital, and the non-sealing of the scene of the crime by the Mumbai Police; was there insufficient material from a forensic medical point of view for this AIIMS team taking a definite opinion on a cause of death and will the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare consider sending the matter to the Medical Board of the Ministry.

Actress Rhea Chakraborty, accused of abetting the suicide of her actor boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, on Monday urged the CBI to take action against her neighbour for giving "false" statements to the media to misled the investigation in the case.
In a letter addressed to Nupur Sharma, heading the CBI's special team, Chakraborty said her neighbour Dimple Thawani had falsely claimed that Rajput had dropped her (Chakraborty) to her house in suburban Mumbai in his car on June 13, a day before he was found hanging at his residence in Bandra.
"Dimple Thawani made false and bogus allegations against me knowing them to be false and misled the investigation.

The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned for next week a PIL seeking a court-monitored CBI probe into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput's former manager, Disha Salian, as the concerned lawyer could not appear online. The case has been adjourned twice due to technical glitches.
A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde and comprising Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian deferred the plea as the concerned advocate did not appear in the hearing through video conferencing. The bench, noting non-appearance of an advocate to argue the matter, said, "Nobody appearing in this matter? Last time also no one appeared. What should we do?" The bench observed that in the last hearing it had suggested the advocate to move the Bombay High Court to raise this issue. The bench adjourned the hearing on the matter for a week.
The plea filed through advocate Vineet Dhanda has sought direction to Mumbai Police to place on record the detailed investigation report in the case, after it was reported that her case file is missing or has been deleted.
