Post-mortem reports of the dead animals point to the presence of an organo-phosphorous compound (thiophosphate), 1ppm (parts per million), in their livers. Water samples collected from the horses' trough at the institute indicate the presence of 1 ppm of nitrite and 0.3 ppm of ammonia.

The Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University team which conducted the autopsies says the animals died primarily due to "intake" of thiophosphate.
