According to PB Desai, inspector at Navrangpura police station, a postmortem was conducted on Sunday. “The report stated head injury as preliminary cause of death… Prima facie, we are treating this as a case of accidental death as the victim might have fallen in the lift gap and an accidental death case has been filed. Thakor was yet to be paid Rs 9,000 as salary for March and he was there to receive that. How-ever, his former manager was on leave on December 22 he couldn’t collect his dues.
