Police seeks exhumation, family refuses
Varmul, Mar 6: Police have decided to exhume the body of a 10-day old infant for autopsy, who was killed during stone pelting incident in this north Kashmir district last month.
“Police have approached Deputy Commissioner Varmul to seek permission for the exhumation,” sources told Greater Kashmir on Saturday. Sources said the doctors have revealed that the baby was suffering from septicaemia and hypothermia and had no external injury except bleeding in nose. “Mother of the new born had informed the doctors that the baby had refused to accept her feed since morning, which is an indication of serious ailment. His heart rate was just 20-25 and was gasping when he arrived in the hospital” said one of the doctors who had examined the victim.
When contacted the Deputy Commissioner Varmul said, “I have no information about police approaching my office for exhumation as I was not there.”
Meanwhile the parents of the infant have refused to allow the autopsy. “It will hurt us emotionally,” said Ghulam Rasool, victim’s grandfather.
Meanwhile, the remand of the six accused, arrested in connection with infant’s killing was extended till 11 February.
