A histopathology will be done and only after that the cause of death will be clear

Hours after his death, the autopsy of Indian television and film star Sidharth Shukla was completed on Thursday at a Mumbai hospital, when no injury marks were found on his body, sources said.

However, a viscera analysis will establish the cause of his death, they added on Friday, reports NDTV.

The 40-year-old’s sudden death, reportedly after a cardiac arrest, shocked his fans and had the entertainment fraternity grieving the loss of a hugely popular star.

A team of three doctors carried out the post-mortem, which was recorded on video. Sources say "no external or internal injuries were found".

The viscera samples have been sent for a chemical analysis. "A histopathology will be done and only after that the cause of death will be clear," said the sources.

Sidharth Shukla was brought to Mumbai's Cooper Hospital around 10:30 am on Thursday by his family. He was brought dead, said the hospital.

Initial reports suggested a heart attack but doctors said the autopsy report would establish the cause of death.

According to his friends, Sidharth Shukla had complained of uneasiness on the previous night. He took something to eat and drink and went back to bed.

When he did not wake up in the morning, the family doctor was called; the doctor advised the family to take him to hospital immediately.
