The body was hanging outside the wall over a ditch, while within the ramparts, some notes have been found scribbled on stones with coal, purportedly against those protesting the movie's release.
"We have received post mortem report today which indicates death due to ante mortem hanging and the injury and abrasion marks found on the right side of the body can also be due to hanging, the report said", Deputy Commissioner of Police, North, Satyendra Singh told media. "We are examining whose handwriting it is and who wrote the slogans", he said. Chetan Kumar Saini was 40 years old. The deceased's Aadhar card was found in his pocket. One of the messages read, "Padmavati ka virodh karne walo, hum kile par sirf putle nahi latkate".
Mahipal Singh Makrana, president of Rajasthan unit of Shri Rajput Karni Sena, said, "When other states have banned Padmavati then why Haryana can't". On November 19, BJP leader Suraj Pal Amu doubled the bounty on Bhansali and Deepika's head to Rs 10 crores.

He affirmed his confidence that Egypt is capable of winning the war against terrorism and eradicating it, a spokesman said. Our condolences & prayers are with the victims & their families.
While probing, the police also found a threat note on the rocks at the fort, which seem to suggested that the death was linked to the row over Padmavati.
The film has been in the eye of the storm following protests from conservative groups over alleged tampering with historical facts, a contention which filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has denied repeatedly. The Karni Sena assauled Mr Bhansali and vandalized his set while he was shooting "Padmavati" in Jaipur in January.
While the Karni Sena has called for a "Bharat Bandh" on December 1 to protest against the film's release, the hanging of the body over the historic Nahargarh Fort has added a horrifying chapter to the ongoing issue.
