The second post-mortem performed on A. Kugan shows he died from being repeatedly beaten. The post-mortem, which was conducted by Dr Prashant N. Samberkar, a pathologist attached to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), also shows that Kugan had multiple burn marks. These V-shaped burn marks are believed to have been caused by a hot iron.
The post-mortem also found 42 other marks, burns and contusions from the sole of his feet right up to his head. Dr Prashant declared that, based on the post-mortem, Kugan was beaten so badly his tissues broke down and his kidneys failed.
Dr Prashant also found that Kugan had suffered haemorrhaging in his trachea, chest, spleen, stomach, the back of his neck and spine, and there were also signs of haemorrhaging in his heart. The soles of his feet had many bruises caused by beatings and he also suffered blunt trauma to his skull.
