1. Salman’s wife Samira was also an actress. Salman was unsatisfied with his wife. There are many reasons behind it. The night before his death, he called his uncle-in-law and told him, he wants to divorce Samira. It was the first clue to make a suspicion towards Salman’s death.

  1. Salman was hanged by a rope with a ceiling fan. But, the rope which was found with his throat was different from the rope found with the fan. This makes clear evidence that, someone may murder him with that rope and tied another rope with the fan to make it believable as a suicide case.

  2. Salman’s body was brought down with the help of a long ladder. It was quite impossible to arrange a long ladder like that over a short period of time in that high rise apartment.

  3. A particular brand of cigarette was found on the floor of Salman’s room on that day. Salman was also a smoker, but it was not his brand. It makes another strong suspicion that someone else was present on that room when he died.

  4. Salman’s body was buried quickly. Later, post-mortem was done on his body. The doctor who did the post-mortem was sure that it was a murder case. But, he was threatened by some people. So, he did not express those in court.
