In a major turnaround in the myterious death of Chetan Saini  whose body was found hanging at Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort with messages denouncing "Padmavati" movie scribbled on rocks nearby, the autopsy report clearly hints that it was not a suicide  case, but a planned murder. 

While the latest post-mortem report, exclusively available with India TV, mentions hanging as the cause of death, it also states that at the time of hanging, Chetan Saini was unconscious. 

The report also mentions the presence of several injury marks on Chetan’s face. 

It further states that there were two types of ligature marks found on Chetan’s neck whereas hanging causes only one  kind of ligature marks. 

Also, the neck bone of Chetan was not broken, whereas hanging from such a height breaks the neck bone first.
 
Based on the autopsy reports, even the police now seem convinced that Chetan’s death is not a suicide but a murder which continues to remain a mystery. 

On November 24, local residents had spotted Chetan’s body hanging from one of the walls of Nahargarh fort with messages against Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film ‘Padmavati’ scribbled on rocks nearby.

Police said that they mobile phone was recovered from one of his trouser pockets along with other things, including his wallet.

The message, written on stones near the fort wall adjacent to the body, read, "Hum putle nahin jalate....latkate hain" (we don't burn effigies, we hang them).

"'Padmavati' ka virodh karne walon hum kile par sirf putle nahin latkatea. Hum main hai dum. (Those protesting against 'Padmavati' don't just hang effigies from the fort walls. We have guts)".
