The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Forensic Department has submitted its report with the CBI in Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case and has questioned the absence of the timing of death in the autopsy report and pointed towards the dimly-lit post mortem room at Cooper Hospital, sources said.
The source ruled out the poisoning angle in the death of the late actor.
An AIIMS source said that the Forensic Board chaired by Dr Sudhir Gupta has submitted its conclusive report with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The source said that in the conclusive report submitted with the agency, doctors have pointed out towards the dim lighting in the post mortem room of Cooper Hospital.
Sushant's autopsy was carried out by three doctors of Cooper Hospital on the night of 14 June.
The source further said that the missing timing of death was another point where the doctors have raised concerns apart from uncertainty about the substance that was found in his stomach.
The source explained that the focus on the contents of the stomach highlights what Sushant had for dinner on the intervening night of 13-14 June and breakfast on the morning of 14 June.
However, the doctors have ruled out the angle of "organic poisoning" as cause of his death. The CBI officials remained tightlipped on the submission of the report to the agency.
Dr Sudhir Gupta, meanwhile, in a statement said that Medical Board of AIIMS has expressed very clearly and conclusively medico-legal final opinion in this case to the CBI.
He further said that the contents of the opinion shared with the CBI cannot be shared to anyone as the matter is "subjudice".
A team of AIIMS' Forensic department was roped in by the CBI to give medico-legal opinion into the death of Sushant.
Sushant was found dead at his apartment on 14 June.
The CBI's SIT team along with CFSL team arrived in Mumbai on June 20, a day after the Supreme Court gave its nod for the federal agency probe.
The CBI recorded the statement of Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, father Indrajit, Pithani, Sushant's house manager Samuel Miranda and several other people in connection with the case.
Besides the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate and the NCB are probing the money laundering and drug angle respectively surrounding the death of Sushant.
