A three-man board has conducted a fresh autopsy on the exhumed body of Raudha Athif, the Maldivian medical student and model who was found dead in her hostel room last month in Bangladesh.
According to the Daily Star news website, the medical board has handed over their findings from the second autopsy to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). The department had requested the court to authorise the exhumation of Raudha’s remains to further investigate her death after her family filed a murder case.
Raudha’s body was exhumed in the presence of Executive Magistrate Dr Raktim Chowdhury, CID Inspector Asmaul Hoque of Rajshahi and Raudha’s father Dr Mohamed Athif around 10 a.m. Monday morning. The fresh autopsy took around three hours and was headed by Associate Professor Amirul Chowdhury who is the head of forensics at Shaheed M Monsur Ali Medical College.
He told Bangladeshi media that the team could not find ligature marks in Raudha’s throat due to partial decomposition of her body.
“However, we found the coronary artery intact. We found nothing new in the X-Ray,” Dr Amirul said, adding that the team had taken samples of Raudha’s soft tissue, bones, hair and fingernails.
Whereas the first autopsy report had ruled Raudha’s death as suicide by hanging, Dr Amirul said they could not find anything conclusive yet as the results of the chemical report are still pending. He did not disclose any more of their findings to media.
