Parveen Yadav — a resident of Sector 37, who collapsed following a case of road rage on September 2 —had died of “natural” causes, states a report submitted by the medical board of Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32.
Colonel Manvir Singh Bains, who is currently in judicial custody, was booked for Yadav’s murder following the incident on the road dividing Sectors 34 and 35.

What postmortem report states:

No external injury

Heart enlarged, significant fat deposition

Pre-existing coronary artery disease

Both lungs congested

The defence has used the report as grounds for filing a bail plea for the colonel. It will be taken up on Monday, said defence counsel AS Sukhija. 

According to Yadav’s postmortem report and the report compiled by Dr Mandhar Ramchand Sane and Dr Abhishek Dhirwas of the GMCH, which has been submitted to the Sector-34 police station house officer (SHO), Yadav died of “acute coronary insufficiency in a case of pre-existing coronary artery disease. A natural cause”. 

The postmortem report clearly states that there were “no external injuries on body” of the deceased and that no abnormality was detected during the examination of any such external injury.

However, it was pointed out that both lungs of the deceased were congested and a portion had been sent for the histopathology examination.  It refers to microscopic examination of a tissue to study the manifestations of disease. As for other components of the internal examination, the postmortem report states the “heart was enlarged with significant fat deposition…”, adding that “all coronary arteries were hard and cord-like”.

It has also been mentioned that the “lumen of left anterior descending coronary artery was narrowed up to 90% by atheromatous plaque, 2cm from its origin”. The heart has also been preserved for histopathology examination. Also, 100cc of a brownish fluid was present in the stomach and mucous was congested, which the doctors stated had been sent for chemical analysis.  The postmortem report concluded that “no definite cause of death could be given at this stage since viscera was preserved for chemical analysis and histopathology examination”.

Yet, the report submitted by the medical board stated how the cause of death was natural. 

No reply on B-class facility 

Meanwhile, police on Friday failed to submit a reply in court to the revision petition for providing B-class jail facilities to the army officer. B-class facilities include separately cooked food, more newspapers and magazines, permission for more visitors and wearing of private dress. The matter was adjourned to September 26, when the arguments in this regard will take place before the sessions court. 

The 48-year-old resident of Phase 7, Mohali, was arrested after being booked under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on the evening of September 2. According to police, the colonel thrashed Yadav following a minor mishap. A local court had refused to hand over the colonel’s custody to the army.
