Victim’s body to be exhumed on Aug 29 for fresh DNA sample
SURANKOTE FAKE ENCOUNTER
Poonch, Aug 25: In a new twist to the Surankote fake encounter case, the police have sought permission from the district administration for exhumation of the victim’s body for collecting fresh DNA samples.
Official sources told Greater Kashmir that police has written a letter to the district magistrate seeking permission to exhume the body on August 29.
“We have been informed by the forensic labortary at Hyderabad that the samples sent to it for DNA verification were not in the proper form and no result can be extracted from it”, SP Poonch Ashkoor Wani said.
He said that fresh blood samples need to be taken from the body and for the purpose permission to exhume the body has been sought from the district magistrate. “We have requested for permission to exhume the body on August 29”, he added.
The district magistrate, Ajeet Kumar Sahu, on being contacted confirmed that the police has sought the permission. “I do not thing there is any impediment in grant of permission”, he said.
Dr Mumtaz Bukhari, Block Medical Officer Surankote, who headed the team of three doctors which had collected the samples earlier, said that the samples were sent as per the procedure. “The samples need to be kept in 428 degree temperature and it most likely that due to the change in temperature the samples may have become unfit for DNA extraction”, he said.
