A month after Janeshwar Sharma (45), an employee of industrialist Anil Nanda was found dead at Friends Colony (West) bungalow, police said they expected the forensic report on Monday and further investigations would follow that.

Before his death, Sharma, in a letter and before a television channel, had claimed that he was doused in petrol and set on fire by Nanda and two others (Dheeraj Balani and Jeetendra Pandey) on June 9.

"The forensic report that will give us a clear picture of the entire episode," said Virendra Singh Chail, additional commissioner of police (southeast).

Delhi Police has so far not found any eyewitness who saw Sharma (45) being doused in petrol and set on fire. There were more than 20 people including Anil Nanda present in the bungalow when the incident took place on June 9.

"We have not come to any conclusion but it seems that he committed suicide. The forensic report is key to it and it would give us an idea whether the injuries were self-inflicted or not," said the officer.

Police said the scene of crime also suggested that there were no traces of petrol on the other walls and had congregated around his feet as if poured from above. Sharma had alleged Nanda was infuriated with him after he refused to participate in unnatural sexual practices.
