Sushant Singh Rajput

Even as Mumbai Police has stated Sushant Singh Rajput’s death as a case of suicide, a political leader and Sushant’s maternal uncle have alleged conspiracy and demanded a detailed probe. Sushant’s post mortem report revealed that the actor died due to asphyxia (when the body is deprived of oxygen resulting in unconsciousness or death).

Jan Adhikar Party Chief Pappu Yadav was quoted by news agency ANI as saying, “He has been murdered, he cannot commit suicide. I demand CBI enquiry into the matter.” ANI also spoke to Sushant’s maternal uncle (not named) outside the actor’s residence in Patna after his death on Sunday. ANI quoted the maternal uncle as saying, “We don’t think he committed suicide, police must investigate the matter. There seems to be a conspiracy behind his death. He has been murdered.”
