"As per the preliminary report, there are no injury marks on the body to indicate strangulation or assault. But, to ascertain the exact cause of death we are awaiting the detailed opinion of the doctors on whether he suffocated or had a heart attack," said DCP (Zone 7) Akhilesh Kumar Singh. According to cops, Suresh's wife and children had gone to their hometown for the summer. Suresh owns a transport business and had spoken with his brother and wife two days back.
