Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing Sushant Singh Rajput’s father in his case against Rhea Chakraborty, has stated that the family of the late actor is dismayed that the investigation into his death has been derailed.

As everyone is well aware, what began as a #JusticeForSSR campaign hoping to reveal details about the circumstances into Rajput’s death has now turned into an investigation into alleged drug abuse in Bollywood.

“The family feels that the investigation is going in such a way that the truth is not coming out. The NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) case has become like the Mumbai Police investigation, all stars are now being called. The people called in and not are a part of a syndicate and not distributors. It is just a Mumbai Police type of investigation. Sushant’s case has taken a back seat,” the lawyer said in a Thursday press conference, according to ANI.

“The family feels that the probe is being taken in a different direction. All attention is being diverted towards the drugs case. AIIMS doctor told me that Sushant’s death was by strangulation,” he added.

However, Dr. Sudhir Gupta, the panel chief of the AIIMS forensic team conducting an examination of Sushant’s death, has rejected these claims.

“No conclusion or conclusion opinion of homicide or suicide could be made by seeing ligature marks and scene of occurrence. It’s difficult for doctors and next to impossible for general people, needed solely internal link discretion and forensic interpretation,” he told Times Now.
