Delhi Police on Monday said no foul play was suspected in the >death of Jabalpur Medical College dean Arun Sharma at a city hotel on Sunday as per prima facie evidence.

However, Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said “nothwithstanding” the initial reports, a medical board has been constituted at the Safdarjung Hospital to conduct post-mortem of the deceased.

“Our crime team had inspected the site where the incident took place and a CFSL team had done the same. So no evidence went unnoticed,” Mr. Bassi told reporters.

He said the police was in touch with Sharma’s family as well for background check to make sure that there were no shortcomings in the investigation. CCTV footage was also being scanned, he said.
