To find if the football legend Maradona’s death by any chance was a result of involuntary manslaughter, Argentine police on Monday searched office and home of one of the attendee doctors, gathering medical records and other items.

Maradona’s personal physician and Neurologist Leopoldo Luque told media that he had handed all medical records, both physical and digital copies of Maradona’s treatment.

Luque defended his treatment of the great, who succumbed to a heart attack last Wednesday. Luque also mentioned he was not Maradona’s chief physician, but a part of the late footballer’s medical team.

 “I know what I did. I know how I did it … I am absolutely sure that what I did the best for Diego, the best I could,” Luque said on Sunday.

Prosecutors in the affluent Buenos Aires suburb Sam Isidro requested a search warrant. This was signed by the local judge according to the statement issued by the prosecutors.  
“Yesterday the investigation and substantiation of evidence continued with the taking of statements from people including direct relatives of the deceased,”  the prosecution told media. “By virtue of the evidence that was collected, it was considered necessary to request searches at the home and office of doctor Leopoldo Luque,” it added
