Digital Desk, Mumbai. The post-mortem report of Mansukh Hiren, owner of a Scorpio car, found near the house of Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries, has not yet given any reason for the death. DCP Avinash Ambure said that the cause of death has been kept in reserve in the post-mortem. Currently, Visra’s samples have been sent to the Kalina Forensic Lab for examination. The family claims that Hiren cannot commit suicide. He has been killed. Demanding a high-level inquiry into the case, he said he would not perform the last rites of Hiren until his questions were answered. But after a lot of persuasion by the top police officers, they agreed and cremated Hiren. At the same time, after getting the responsibility of investigating the case, the Anti-Terrorism Squad has started investigating. On Saturday, ATS officials took stock of the site where Hiren’s body was found from the Gulf.
The family claimed murder
Hiren’s wife Vimal said that her husband cannot commit suicide. Policemen were questioning him for the last several days. On Thursday also at eight o’clock he told that he was called for questioning by a person named Tawde of Kandivali Crime Branch in Ghodbunder Road premises and they left the house. When he did not return till 10 o’clock in the night, the family tried to call him but his phone was switched off. If he did not return till one o’clock in the night, he was reported missing in the police station. The next day, his body was recovered from the Gulf at Mumbra. Vimal demanded an inquiry into the entire matter. Hiren’s elder brother Vinod also said that his brother cannot commit suicide. If he had any problem, he would have given information about it. He said that Mansukh was a good swimmer. He also taught swimming to others and could swim for hours in water, so that he could not die by drowning.
Questions arose from a handkerchief stuck in the mouth
President of Thane Merchant Federation Devi Lal Jain expressed apprehension that Mansukh had been killed. He said that at the time when Mansukh’s body was found, a handkerchief was inserted in his mouth, how can anyone believe that he has committed suicide. He said that action should be taken against the culprits after conducting a high-level inquiry into the matter.
