HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh government on Monday submitted before a division bench of the Hyderabad High Court the postmortem report of all the 20 victims of the Seshachalam encounter. Further, the government sought time for submitting the report of the re-postmortem of six victims which was done as per the court’s order.
When the matter came up for hearing, the government informed the court that the re-autopsy of six dead persons was done in Tamil Nadu and the Andhra government was awaiting the reports. After perusing the first autopsy report of the forensic doctors at Ruia hospital, who conducted the post mortem of 20 victims, the Bench, comprising Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta and Justice PV Sanjay Kumar asked the AP State advocate general about the reports of the second post mortem examination.
When AG P Venugopal sought time for submitting the reports of the second postmortem, the Bench granted time till Wednesday.
It may be recalled that the Bench last week had ordered for re-postmortem of the six dead persons - A Sasikumar, Murugan, Murthy, Mahendran, Perumal and Munusamy - while hearing petitions filed by relatives of the deceased.
The dead bodies were preserved at the district headquarters hospital in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu.
