In the mysterious death of the Kanpur businessman Manish Gupta in Gorakhpur during a hotel raid, 6 cops have been suspended and booked for murder. The autopsy report has revealed serious body injuries on the right arm, wrist, middle of the head, and eyelid which raise everyone’s eyebrows over the story narrated by police.
As per the post-mortem report, the 5×4 cm injury in the middle of Manish’s head proved to be the most fatal one. There were stick marks on his right arm and injuries around his left eyelid. Other than the post-mortem report, it was claimed that the businessman’s wife found a blood-stained towel under the bed in their hotel room while collecting his luggage from there.
Police Claims About The Death Appears False
Phalmandi Police post-in-charge, Akshay Mishra who was among the six cops who entered the hotel named Krishna Palace late on Monday. He submitted that they raided the place as they have a tip regarding three suspicious persons staying in the hotel.
“When we entered the room, Manish was drunk and he fell on the floor. Later, he died,” said Mishra. But with every video coming out, witnesses narrating their stories, and most importantly the autopsy revelations, all their claims seem to be false. All the cops have been absconding.

I opened the door and there were five-seven policemen there along with the boy from the reception. They came inside the room and started asking us for IDs. I showed my ID and then woke up Manish.
