"I had over 28 years of experience. When I observed Sushant's body, there was no mark that is generally found in hanging cases. There were fracture marks on his body.

If the investigating agency will call me, I will also tell them," he added.

After Shah’s claim, Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti has reacted to it and urged the Central Bureau Of Investigation (CBI) to ‘look into the claim diligently’.  Shweta took to Instagram, shared a screenshot of the news and urged the central agency to investigate the claim if it has an ounce of truth.
