The DVR of the CCTV footage at the Vinayaka Lodge in Madikeri, where Ganapathy was found hanging, was sent to a laboratory in Hyderabad and the report has been received.

Justice Keshavanarayana said that the enquiry report will be prepared after going through all the statements and the scientific evidence available.

He said that George and the two IPS officers have not yet been summoned for enquiry.

"The statements recorded so far and the contents of the FSL reports have not evoked the requirement of taking their statements. A final report will be submitted to the government based on the statements of witnesses and also on the FSL report,'' Justice Keshavanarayana said.

The Commission sources said that the CBI has not approached them seeking any material in connection with the case so far.
