Samples of her body have been obtained for DNA and forensic testing. A chemical examination would reveal whether she ingested poison, the report added.

The police surgeon at the Civil Hospital, Dr Bansi Lal, verified the initial report, noting that it had been handed over to the police. The final one, however, would be released once the DNA test was completed.
