Recently, the family lawyer of late actor, Vikas Sngh, had stated that the delay by CBI to convert the case from abetment to suicide to murder is frustrating.

Senior advocate Singh took to his unverified Twitter account to express his opinion. He added that an AIIMS doctor, who is part of the medical team probing the actor's death, had told him long back that Sushant's death happened by strangulation and not by suicide.

"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," Singh tweeted on Friday.
