Singh's brother, who came to AIIMS to receive the body, alleged that he was murdered and that he saw injury marks on his body and finger marks on his neck. "My brother was murdered. I have seen injury marks on the body and finger marks on the throat," the brother, who did not wish to be identified, alleged.

Singh was found hanging in his cell in Tihar Jail at around 5:30 am on Monday and the body was brought to AIIMS at around last evening after completion of various proceedings.

The post-mortem could not be conducted on Monday as the Delhi police could not submit the required papers to the hospital on time.
