Sushant Singh Rajput’s family lawyer, Vikas Singh has been very vocal in the ongoing investigation but in his latest admission, he believes the chances of the actor being murdered are “very, very high”.
Talking about Rajput’s flatmate, Siddharth Pithani, Vikas said that he had been in regular contact with the family until an FIR was filed against him.
Vikas was cited in Times of India saying, “But after a case was registered (in Patna), he started helping Sushant’s ex-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.”
He added, “Till the time we filed the FIR, Pithani was in contact with the family and gave an impression that it was a suicide and that Sushant was under depression. The bereaved family was believing the same. But once the FIR was registered (by Sushant’s father KK Singh), he was helping Rhea by sharing that email. It was at that point that the family felt it could be a murder. Now, from what he has done and questions that have appeared, the chances are very, very high that it could be a murder.”
Vikas also questioned the “discrepancies” in the autopsy report. He said, “The autopsy was not shared with anybody for long. It is silent on the effect of hanging on the body, like popping out of eyes, bone-snapping etc; nothing is there. I don’t think even nail clippings have been taken for testing.”
He added, “Though the autopsy is silent on a lot of things, like was there a stool to hang, whether he could have hanged himself or not, and so on. I hope that the CBI as a very professional and efficient agency will address these important questions and reach a logical conclusion.”
The investigation continues.
