Mystery continued to shroud the death of the chief postmaster general of northern circle, Krishan Lal Khanna, who was found dead at his Sector-30 residence on Wednesday morning. Khanna, nearing 60, died after he reportedly fell in the backyard, but his viscera samples have been sent for forensic examination to ascertain the exact cause. The report may take up to a month.

After the post-mortem examination at the Sector-16 Government Multi-Specialty Hospital (GMSH), officials said there was an injury mark on Khanna's head. The body was, meanwhile, handed over to the family who held the cremation.

As for any foul play, deputy superintendent of police (DSP), east, Vijay Kumar said, "There is no complaint by the family. Prima facie it appears that Khanna died after getting an injury after he slipped on the wet floor. But nothing can be certain till we get the viscera report."

Khanna's 28-year-old son Gaurav was at home at the time of the death, and had called an ambulance. When the ambulance got delayed, he had entered into an argument with driver, following which the police were called in.
