A day after some photographs about the X-ray and City Scan of the body of Srinagar youth went viral, authorities Friday said that it will take at least a week to prepare autopsy report about Shabir Ahmed Mir whose body was exhumed on Thursday on the directions of Supreme Court of India.
Shabir Ahmed Mir, a mason by profession and a resident of Tengpora Batamaloo according to his family members was allegedly killed by a police officer at his residence on July 10.
Chief Medical Officer Srinagar Dr Bashir Ahmed Malik said that a team of experts after preparing the autopsy report will submit it before the Principal and District Sessions Judge. “It will at least take a week’s time,” he said.
“Let me clear it we have not made the autopsy report public. It will take a week’s time and we will only handover the report to the Principal and District Sessions judge,” he said.
Worth to mention here that the team of doctors who carried the autopsy compromised Dr Riyaz, Dr Arsalan, Dr Zahid, and Dr Zaffar.
The Supreme Court had last week directed that the body of the youth be exhumed for conducted autopsy.
The directions came after state government challenged the order of Jammu and Kashmir High Court which had upheld the order of Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar, directing police to file FIR against the Dy SP.
“We direct the State Authorities to proceed in the matter in accordance with the provisions of law and to submit the Post Mortem Report, in a sealed cover, on or before 5th September, 2016,” SC division bench comprising justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy had said.
Meanwhile, various media reports said that the initial autopsy reports of slain Tengpora youth Shabir Ahmad Mir suggest that “hundreds of pellets were found inside his body”.
The autopsy was done at Government Medical College Srinagar on Thursday morning under the supervision of Principal District and Sessions judge.
“There was a small entry wound on his body near the renal area on the left side. When we opened his body for autopsy, we found hundreds of pellets inside. The pellets had damaged all his vital organs. His liver was shattered with pellets while other organs like heart, lungs, kidneys and stomach were also perforated with pellets,” a doctor, who was part of the expert team, told Rising Kashmir.
The doctor said that the detailed report would be prepared after closely examining his Viscera including liver, heart, spleen, lungs and stomach.
