Mr Kular’s death is being treated as unexplained at this stage and an inquest into his death was opened on Friday.
The inquest heard that Mr Kular was working at the time of his death and was laying industrial pipe work.
He entered a trench that then collapsed inwards.
A post mortem found severe skull fractures and crush injuries to Mr Kular's chest.
The inquest will continue at a later date.
Officers from Suffolk police are continuing working with colleagues from the Health and Safety Executive to establish the circumstances leading up to his death.
