The man who allegedly conducted the post mortem of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput recently claimed that the actor was murdered and didn’t due to suicide. The shocking claim comes after almost two years of “did he, did he not” debate around the actor’s death under suspicious circumstances. The ‘Dil Bechara’ actor had reportedly hanged himself to the ceiling of his apartment in Bandra, and was found dead on June 14.
A Times Now report quoted Roopkumar Shah, who allegedly did the actor’s post mortem, claiming that the actor’s death was not the aftermath of his suicide attempt, but murder. “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,” Shah said.
“When we went to perform a post mortem, we learnt he was Sushant and there were several marks on his body and two to three marks on his neck as well. The postmortem needed to be recorded but higher authorities were asked to only click pics of the body. Hence, we did that as per their order,” he added, as quoted by Times Now report.
Rajput’s death inadvertently gave a rise to conspiracies around his death, with many of his loyal fans still trying to find out how the actor really died.
The Facts of the Matter
On June 14, 2020, as the nation was fighting tooth and nail against COVID-19, a shocking news surfaced which shed light on how media conducted itself, how interviews were done, and how media trials defamed a particular group of people.

However, the circumstances under which Sushant’s dead body was found, was dubious to say the least. Media floated pictures of Rajput’s body which showed marks of assault. What followed was conspiracies surrounding Rajput’s death, and an alleged murder.
While the CBI’s forensic team ruled murder out, Sushant’s own family wanted a detailed investigation to be done in the matter. Now, two years after the actor’s death, a shocking revelation has surfaced.

It's doctor's job as to what to write in Post mortem report. He should get justice. Everyone can tell by looking at the picture of Sushant Singh Rajput that he was murdered.

“Did as per order”
“When we went to perform a post-mortem, we learnt he was Sushant and there were several marks on his body and two to three marks on his neck as well. The postmortem needed to be recorded but higher authorities were asked to only click pics of the body. Hence, we did that as per their order.”
“Felt it was not suicide..”
“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, adding another layer to the already convoluted and much debated case.
