Earlier, Padmapriya's body was flown from Bangalore to Mangalore aiport. The body which landed in Bangalore on Monday night from New Delhi was accompanied by Bhat and Karwar MLA Suresh Kumar.
Meanwhile investigations into the incident continued with a team of the Bangalore police leaving for New Delhi. The Delhi police told the media that the responsibility of the probe was now with the Karnataka police. A police official from Karnataka before leaving for New Delhi told rediff.com that no arrests had been made as yet in the case. He also clarified that Atul Rao had not been arrested. Only further investigations will reveal the truth, the police officer added.
Padmapriya was found hanging at an apartment in New Delhi on Sunday. She had been missing from her residence in Udupi since Wednesday, but a complaint was lodged only last Friday. The autopsy report suggested that she had committed suicide by hanging and ruled out any foul play.
