Dalit boy Ilavarasan, whose body was found near a railway track on July 4 in Dharmpuri, died of head injury, the three doctors team of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi said in their report.
“After thorough post-mortem examination of the body, the board is of the unanimous opinion that the cause of death in this case is extensive cranio-cerebral damage (head injury) caused by impact of heavy blunt object. The head injury as well as other injuries are antemortem in nature and will result in instantaneous death. The injuries mentioned inlcuding fatal injury could be caused by the impact of a running train,’’ Dr DN Bhardwaj, Dr Sudhir Kumar Gupta and Dr Millo Tabin have said.
“There was no evidence of torture/physical violence on any part of the body of the deceased. The time since death is consistent with first post-mortem report,’’ the report added.
The report said that the body was extensively examined for torture signs on whole of the back, buttock, thighs, calf muscles, soles and the hands by giving multiple incisions. No such injury is detected on any part of the body. The toxicological analysis established consumption of alcohol in quantity sufficient to cause a person under influence of alcohol,’’ the doctors observed in their report.
