Therefore the post mortem report and FSL (Forensic science laboratory) test have gained much importance in this investigation.

The quick pace of the investigation is known. An unnatural death case has been registered under CrPC (Criminal Procedure Code). The case has not been registered under IPC (Indian Penal Code).
