However, people close to the actor feels that the case has been diverted from seeking justice for the late actor to the dug angle in Bollywood. Vikas Singh, Sushant’s family lawyer also said in a statement that the actor had been strangled and accused the CBI of ‘delaying’ what he believed should be a murder probe. Now, reacting to his statement, the CBI has said that ‘no aspect has been ruled out’. Also Read - Author John Green Mourns Sushant Singh Rajput's Death as he Wishes Sanjana Sanghi For Dil Bechara

Last week, Sushant’s family lawyer 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)”
He even said that AIIMS doctor panel has shared the finding of the autopsy report with him. However, Sudhir Gupta, the head of the AIIMS forensic team, denied claims and said, “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.”
The CBI SIT team went to Mumbai on August 20, a day after the Supreme Court gave the federal agency a go through in the case.
