Will Rizwanur's body be exhumed? CBI in a fix

October 24, 2007 19:44 IST

A decision on whether or not to exhume the body of Rizwanur Rehman, the computer graphics teacher of Kolkata who married the daughter of a Hindu industrialist, would be taken after a team of experts studies the post-mortem report, the Central Bureau of Investigation sources said on Wednesday.

The agency, probing the death of Rehman, will approach the Director General of Health Services (DGHS) for constituting the team of experts that would examine the post-mortem report.

CBI sources said since AIIMS Doctor P D Dogra had been suspended by the health ministry it was now going to approach the DGHS for constituting a team of doctors for examining the autopsy report.

Dogra was preferred by the investigating agency because of his quick examination in Nithari (Noida) serial killings and identification of victims. But now the DGHS will have to provide the agency with a fresh panel of experts which would go into the report and advise whether a fresh postmortem was required, they said.

Exhuming of Rizwanur's body would be beneficial right now as even the soft tissues within the body of the deceased would be intact, a CBI official, attached with the probe into the death, said.
