Mangaluru Police have confirmed on Monday that the forensic report on the death of Cafe Coffee Day owner VG Siddhartha corroborates the suicide theory. Water was found in Siddhartha's lungs and his death was due to drowning, said Mangaluru Police Commissioner P S Harsha. "We have received the FSL report. It corroborates the suicide theory," the commissioner added.
Siddhartha had gone missing from the Netravati river bridge near Ullal in Mangaluru on July 29 evening and two days later, his body was found floating in the river. On the way to Mangaluru, Siddhartha got down from the car at Ullal bridge on the swollen Netravati river and asked his driver to wait for him as he walked on the bridge alone on the rainy evening without an umbrella. Two days later his body was found.
