Shukla's mortal remains weren't taken to his residence from hospital
It was earlier said that his mortal remains will make one final journey to his house in Mumbai, but then there was a decision change. So, Shukla's body was taken to the crematorium straight from the hospital. Heavy police deployment was seen on the way.

Post mortem report came out inconclusive, sample sent to forensics
Separately, the actor's autopsy report came out inconclusive. That's why his samples have been sent to the forensic lab for further examination. However, no external or internal injury was found. Dr. Sailesh Mohite, dean, Cooper Hospital, didn't say anything else. It seems Mumbai Police is treating this as a natural death, as they have not registered an accidental death report or an offense.
'His mother was present in the house at that time'
Shukla reportedly felt a pang in his chest around 3-3:30am yesterday. "His mother was present in the house at that time. He complained of uneasiness and after drinking water, he went back to sleep," said an officer. He again felt the pain in the morning, and a doctor was called by his sister. But by the time he reached, it was too late.
