New Delhi: After Sushant Singh Rajput’s family expressed unhappiness about the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) probe into his death, the agency has shared an update about the status of the investigation. The CBI said that the probe is still on and no aspect has been ruled out yet."The Central Bureau of Investigation is conducting a professional investigation related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput in which all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as of date. The investigation is continuing," the agency said in its statement on Monday.Last week, Sushant Singh Rajput's family's lawyer Vikas Singh, had tweeted: "Getting frustrated by the delay in CBI taking a decision to convert abetment to suicide to Murder of SSR. The Doctor who is part of AIIMS team had told me long back that the photos sent by me indicated 200% that it's death by strangulation and not suicide. (Sic)"The lawyer had claimed that an AIIMS doctor on the panel investigating Sushant Singh Rajput's autopsy report had shared these findings with him.News agency ANI quoted the CBI as saying, “The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is conducting a professional investigation related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput in which all aspects are being looked at and no aspect has been ruled out as of date. Investigation is continuing.”Mr Singh also alleged that the pace of the CBI probe had "suddenly slowed down" and all attention had been diverted to a drugs-related probe with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) conducting a "fashion parade" of Bollywood stars.Sudhir Gupta, the head of the AIIMS forensic team, had denied his claim. "No findings given to CBI yet... final meeting has to be scheduled. No conclusive opinion could be made just by seeing pictures. Our opinion will be clear and conclusive based on evidence," Dr Gupta had said.Lawyer Satish Maneshinde, representing Sushant Singh Rajput's arrested girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, had urged the CBI to set up a new medical board "to keep the investigations impartial and free from inference".Mumbai Police and Patna Police, the case was transferred to the CBI last month. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are looking into the money laundering and drugs angles of the case, respectively.Last week, Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh said that the family is disappointed with the direction in which the investigation is heading. “The family feels that the investigation is going in such a way that the truth is not coming out. The NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) case has become like the Mumbai Police investigation, all stars are now being called. The people called in and not are a part of a syndicate and not distributors. It is just a Mumbai Police type of investigation. Sushant’s case has taken a back seat,” the senior advocate said in a press conference on Thursday, according to ANI.
