Dear Bhupendra,it is really sad that you have lost your near & dear to an illness.
As you have mentioned that he was suffering from urine infection ,it is safe to conclude that he developed severe infection in the blood called 'Sepsis' which also caused Kidney failure.Regarding kidney being reported as normal by Radiologist simply is a finding on USG but inside of kidney may still be abnormal or may become abnormal later.I can only opine this much based on input you have provided.
