Udupi: It is official now. All the rumours regarding murder angle of Shiroor Swamiji has come to an end. Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) at Mangaluru, in its report, concluded that the Swamiji's death was caused by natural causes. Sources said that the report mentions that no traces of poison were found in the body of Swamiji.
The police have handed over the said report to experts of forensic science laboratory at KMC Hospital Manipal, who have already issued post-mortem report. It might take a few days for the doctors to compare the findings of the two reports and come to a final conclusion, it is learnt.
Experts of FSL feel that the suspicion expressed by KMC hospital's medical superintendent Dr Avinash Shetty on July 19 about the presence of poisonous substance in the Swamiji's body might have been caused because of an error in translation. There is chance of undigested food turning poisonous because of the rupture of the liver, and finding of small traces of poison arising out of this development would have been
wrongly translated as ingestion of poisonous substance, it is felt. It may be noted that as per post-mortem report and also the FSL report, no poisonous substance was found during the tests.
