The 96-page report of Justice Bedi Commission was submitted to state Secretary G H Tantray at Jammu today, an official spokesman said.

On a cumulative assessment of the evidence on record, it has been found that the death of Yousuf was caused by myocardial infarction or a heart attack and that no suspicious circumstances can be spelt out, the Commission said in the report, excerpts of which was released to media today.

Yousuf was handed over to the IG, Crime Branch, by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on September 29 last year from the CM's camp office after he allegedly admitted to taking money from two workers for getting them favours from the state government. He died a day later.

Medical tests showed that Yousuf died of cardiac arrest and that there were no external injuries on his body.

The state government had on November 18 last year appointed the retired Supreme Court judge as the head of the Commission to probe the death of 61-year-old Yousuf in police custody.

The Commission observed that "the evidence also reveals that Yousuf had received proper treatment while in the hospital". (More)
