When asked about who all from SSR’s family were present during the post-mortem, team said, “A 3: We don't remember who all from the family were present during the post-mortem. Police came with Sushant Singh Rajput's sister's signed statement and requested the post-mortem. It was later on that Sushant Singh Rajput's brother-in-law, ADG Haryana Police (OP Singh) and sister reached the post-mortem centre.” Replying to Vikas Singh’s question of not mentioning time of death in the autopsy report, team told India today, “The Mumbai Police had raised questions regarding the time of death and it was mentioned in the next detailed report that it was 10 to 12 hours before the post-mortem.”
