Poisoning was raised as a theory by the actor's family and others who have been questioning the Mumbai police assessment that the popular star committed suicide
Poisoning has been conclusively ruled out as the cause of actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
A team of doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi confirmed the matter in a report to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) of India after carrying out an autopsy, reports NDTV.
Poisoning was a theory raised by the actor's family and others who have been questioning the Mumbai police assessment that the popular star committed suicide.
The 34-year-old movie star was found dead on June 14 in his Mumbai apartment. Although Mumbai police called the incident a suicide based on initial autopsy, many were not convinced.
Wild speculation and campaigns of justice on social media and allegations from Sushant Singh Rajput's family raised doubts that became a part of an overall CBI investigation.
The CBI investigation started after the actor’s family filed a case accusing the actor's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty of mentally harassing him, medicating him, exploiting him for money and playing a role in his death.
Sources say that the CBI is likely to continue its probe into "abetment to suicide", the charge that was originally listed by the Mumbai police.
