Post mortem of three persons, including two teenagers, who died in the violence in Seelampur area of North-East Delhi on Wednesday, died of bullet injuries.
The autopsy of the fourth person, who has not been identified, is yet to be conducted, sources at the Guru Tegh Bahadur hospital said here.
The bodies of 16-year-olds Qasim and Mohd Ashraf and 31-year-old Wasiq, have been handed over to their relatives for burial at a graveyard near Seelampur, where large-scale violence was witnessed.
Earlier, the families of Ashraf and Qasim alleged that the police were not allowing them to take the bodies to their homes in Seelampur for performing the last rites. They said police asked them to take the bodies to the burial ground, saying they apprehend fresh outbreak of violence if the bodies are taken to their homes.
Meanwhile, large number of people had collected at Seemapuri graveyard to attend the funeral. A large posse of policemen, BSF and Rapid Action Force personnel are patrolling the streets of Seelampur to avert any untoward incident.
