Indore : The postmortem report of woman industrialist Akansha Rathi revealed that she died due to strangulation. However, it is yet to be ascertained whether it was suicide or murder, one of the doctors who did the postmortem said on Saturday.
"Whether she had strangled herself or it was by someone else is a matter of investigation," Komal Singh, head of the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya hospital's doctors panel ,which conducted the post mortem, said. Asked whether any drugs had been found in Akansha's viscera, he said: "It is yet to be examined."
On Thursday, a team of doctors of the hospital and police officers visited Akansha's parents' house in Dwarka here where she was found dead in mysterious circumstances on October 23. The team collected samples of anti-depression drugs she was taking.
"The samples of the medicines and her viscera were sent to the Rohini Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL). The report will take some days to come," Promila Gupta, hospital medical superintendent said. The postmortem report will be handed over to police on Monday, Gupta said.
Preliminary investigations indicated that Akansha had committed suicide by hanging. She apparently went into depression after her husband's death in September. Akansha then filed a dowry harassment complaint against her in-laws.
