However, when the police tried to stop him they were alleged to have been stopped by the volunteers who had gathered at the AAP rally at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi.

The autopsy report

In the autopsy report it is stated that the death was caused due to hanging. The hanging causes asphyxia as a result of which Singh passed away, the report also states.

There was confusion over whether the death of Singh was caused due to hanging or falling down from the tree. As per the account given by the Delhi Police in its first information report, Singh was instigated into climbing the tree by the volunteers.

Once he was on top of the tree, he pulled out a cloth and tied it around his neck. When the Delhi Police called in help from the fire services and tried to bring him down the volunteers refused to allow them.

The volunteers then got on top of the tree and tried to free him and all this was done in such an unprofessional manner that Singh ended up losing his life, the investigations had shown.

What led to the suicide?

What exactly led to Singh committing suicide is a subject matter of investigation. The preliminary investigation clearly indicates that Singh had no intention of committing suicide. He was instigated into staging an act.

Moreover, the suicide note left by him was not his and could have been written by someone else the police also noted. Further verification on this aspect is on.
