New Delhi: The lawyer representing late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's family in the actor's death case, Vikas Singh on Wednesday wrote to the director of the CBI calling the forensic report submitted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to the agency "unprofessional".

Dr. Gupta is the head of the six-member AIIMS panel which in its reports to the CBI, ruled out the murder angle in the actor's death. The panel in a report submitted to the agency on September 29 had said that there were ‘no injuries on Rajput’s body other than of hanging’ nor was ‘presence of any seductive material’ detected.
Mr. Singh called this report "leaked" further wrote if correct, the report amounts to ‘drawing a biased and boastful conclusion from insufficient evidence.’
Singh accused Dr. Gupta of pointing to various objections he had with the report of ‘selectively leaking’ contents of the report to a couple of media houses. The ‘leak,’ he wrote, is aimed at creating doubts in people’s minds and bailing out the agencies ‘who have not done their job as per the rules.’
Further, he called Dr. Gupta's conduct ‘unethical’ and ‘unprofessional.’
Then Singh wrote he is of the firm opinion the matter needs to be referred to another forensic team to be constituted by the CBI by picking up ‘some of the best names in the field from a different hospital’ for fair and proper assessment can take place.
On June 12 Sushant Singh Rajput,34 years old was found dead in his Mumbai flat. The Supreme Court transferred the case from the Mumbai Police to the CBI on August 18.
