A postmortem examination had been conducted by a medical board. The PM report came out on Tuesday. The police headquarters (PHQ) has already suspended ASI Mohan Singh and sent to lines three constables for negligent in taking Akbar to hospital for treatment. ASI Mohan was leading the team that responded to a call to the police control room from a villager who informed about the lynching of Akbar by cow vigilantes. Mohan Singh first took Akbar to the local police station and kept him there for three hours. It is alleged that the delay in taking Akbar to hospital caused his death.
