Jaipur: The man whose body was found hanging on the ramparts of Rajasthan's Nahargarh Fort with anti-'Padmavati' scribblings nearby was not murdered, the forensic report has confirmed.

FSL officials said the final report submitted to police confirms that Chetan Saini's death on November 24 was a suicide, IANS reported.

They claimed that the FSL conducted a thorough examination of the evidence and submitted five separate reports, which included viscera report, in the final submission.

The death of Saini had added to the controversy over the protests over Bollywood film ‘Padmavati’, as there were "inflammatory" scribblings, written by charcoal, on many stones near the body.

These scribblings also referred to the "Padmavati" movie protest. One of the slogans read ‘Padmavati ka virodh (Opposing Padmavati), while another read ‘Hum putle nahi jalate, latkate hain’ (we don’t burn effigies, we kill).

The police officials were not available for comments on the forensic report.

The Rajput Karni Sena, which was spearheading the Padmavati protest, had said the outfit did not have anything to do with the death. “This is not our way of protest. I want to tell people not to resort to such methods,” a member had said.
