It was at 3 pm on Friday that the body of Jisha was brought to the MCH for post-mortem examination. The autopsy was conducted by medical officer (a final year PG student) Amjith E Kutty under the supervision of a deputy police surgeon, said MCH authorities. It took three hours to complete the medical examination. The internal organs and blood samples of Jisha were sent to Chemical Examiner’s Laboratory and Forensic Science Laboratory in Thiruvananthapuram for detailed examination and DNA test, the authorities said.

In the examination, it was found that there were 38 injuries, including some deep wounds in her vagina. Scratch marks of fingers were found on both her shoulders. It can be suspected as a sign of rape. Her vagina had suffered deep injuries and blood was found clotted in her internal organs. But reports of the lab are required to confirm rape, the report says.

Meanwhile, an MCH doctor on condition of anonymity said there was nothing wrong in the postmortem carried out at the MCH. In medical colleges, even major surgeries are being handled by PG students under the supervision of senior doctors. In the Forensic Department, the PG students are doing the autopsies under the supervision of a police surgeon.
