“The NCST has demanded that the probe by the Crime Branch into the case be completed as soon as possible… Even the post-mortem report has not been released yet,” Sai told PTI on Sunday.

“It’s not clear yet whether it’s suicide or murder. The matter is under investigation. Let the post-mortem report come out,” he added.

Earlier, the doctors who were accused of allegedly abetting the suicide of the medico; were arrested by the police and the case was handed over to the Mumbai police Crime Branch.
