The two doctors who conducted post-mortem on deceased senior IPS officer MS Ahlawat, who fell from the fourth floor of a condominium, have ruled out consumption of alcohol.

According to the doctors, the injuries suggested that he died due to excessive bleeding as his vital organs had punctured. Head injury was not the cause of death, the autopsy revealed.

The doctors have also ruled out the possibility of foul play, and said it may have been suicide since the body bore no marks of resistance or scuffle. Dr Hajari Lal, one of the doctors, said the deceased’s lungs, kidneys and liver were punctured due to the fall, causing death.

“He died around 9pm on Saturday when he was being taken to hospital. He didn't die on the spot. He fell on his feet, due to which his right leg suffered major fracture. His vital organs such as ribs and lungs took severe damage,” said Dr Lal.

The second doctor, Dr Deepak Mathur, said, “There was no chances of someone pushing him from that height, as the person would then fall head first. If it had been foul play, the head would have struck the ground. Landing on the feet happens when somebody jumps intentionally,” added Dr Mathur.
