Doctors of the SSG hospital submitted a concluding medical report to the Vadodara police on Wednesday evening, after drawing conclusions from the findings of the Gandhinagar Forensic Laboratory. According to the report, Goswami died due to myocardial heart failure, arising out of excessive consumption of ethyl alcohol, the compound found in liquor.
