3. Was Sena Sarkar behind Sushant Singh Rajput postmortem report botch-up? | The Newshour Debate
-On The Newshour Debate with Navika Kumar, There has been a foul play in Sushant Singh Rajput's post mortem report. There is a botch-up by the Mumbai Police. Whether inadvertently or deliberately that is something the CBI has to come over a conclusion.
Lawyer of SSR Family Vikas Singh says, After death, everything becomes standstill. The body doesn’t digest anything thereafter. If Sushant had juice, that juice would still remain in the stomach even if there is a delay in the autopsy. Of all the important districts of Maharashtra, Copper Hospital is the nominated hospital for autopsy.
Political Analyst Sundar Balakrishnan says, In the case of hanging if it is done in the midnight or before midnight then the delay will be already there (6-12 hrs) to conduct the post mortem.
