Atul Singh, the brother of Sengar was arrested early today in connection with the killing.
Singh was arrested on April 5 under the Arms Act after he was allegedly beaten up by Anil Singh.
A doctor who was part of the post-mortem process said Singh's intestine was ruptured that led to infection.

A defiant Sengar, however, rejected the charge as a conspiracy by his opponents and said the complainant belonged to a "low class", even as six policemen were suspended and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath assured whosoever is guilty will not be spared.
Significantly, a case had been registered against four persons a few days back on a complaint by the deceased's wife that he was beaten up.
"The four accused -- Sonu, Baua, Vinit and Shailu -- named in the FIR registered on April 4, 2018 for beating up the deceased had been arrested," Superintendent of Police, Unnao, Pushpanjali Devi said.
The 18-year-old girl who is pleading for justice tried to immolate herself outside Adityanath's office two days ago.
Speaking to reporters outside the Chief Minister's Office in Lucknow, Sengar said the allegations against him were part of a conspiracy. He was summoned by CM Yogi Adityanath last evening.
"They belong to a low status family ('nimn star ke log hain')...This is a conspiracy by my opponents," Sengar told reporters, but refused to comment on speculation about he being summoned by the chief minister.
