The Police descended on the house of Maradona's private doctor because of the report making rounds that the football legend died of manslaughter.
Some set of prosecutors are keen to know whether the football legend was the casualty of medical negligence, according to Argentine news agency Telam.
According to television images and judicial sources, the agency reported that Policemen swooped Leopoldo Luque’s surgery and home in search of possible evidence that will nail him for medical negligence.
Diego's long term Lawyer and physician have berated Maradona's current medical care before his death.
Diego underwent a heart attack at his home in Buenos Aires, where he has been staying for the past two weeks after his brain surgery.
The probe erupted when reports carried it that he argued with Luque nights before his heart attack.
Luque is at his home while the search on the outskirts of Buenos Aires takes place.
Tv stations in Buenos Aires covered the search.
The arrowhead that led to the investigation was Maradona’s daughters Dalma and Giannina that gave opinions on Sunday and questioned whether the medication their father was receiving was suitable.
Luque is just been investigated at this time so cannot be charged for any crime unless if found guilty.
Diego's lawyer Matias Morla requested that Maradona's death should be investigated.
According to Morla, the first ambulance took more than half an hour to reach Maradona's house which is not supposed to be so. He called the delay a “criminal idiocy.”
Morla also said that Diego did not receive any medical check-up 12 hours before he died. This will mount more pressure on Diego's Doctor.
Today is a day of deep pain, sadness, and reflection, Morla added.
"I feel in my heart the parting of a friend whom I respected with my allegiance and friendship until his last days. I made my farewell with him in person and the wake should be an indivisible occasion.
Morla has been talking tough and urged the security personnel, to join hands to know if something is behind Maradona's death.
Alfredo Cahe, Maradona's long term Doctor also said that he doubted the decision of moving Diego from the hospital to his home after his brain surgery.
Cahe said that Diego wasn’t looked after as he should have been.
According to Cahe, Diego should have been kept in the hospital where there is enough medical equipment instead of been hurried home. He said he is still shocked they took him home with his state.
Cahe quickly channeled people's attention to when he suggested 30years ago that Maradona should be taken to Cuba for proper medical attention and after their stay there Diego gained his fitness back unlike now that he went home too early.
He also thinks that there is something fishy in Diego's death.
