Dr Maha suicide case: Court rejects police request to exhume body for post-mortem
September 4, 2020
KARACHI (92 News) - Karachi district court rejected police request to exhume the body of Dr Maha, who committed suicide, for post-mortem.
Rejecting the request of police, the court remarked that Dr Maha was buried in Mirpur Khas, which does not fall under the jurisdiction of Karachi district court.
On the other hand, the SP Investigation South has written a letter to the District and Sessions Judge, Mirpurkhas seeking permission to exhume the body of Dr Maha Ali Shah, a lady doctor who had reportedly committed suicide in DHA last month.
In his letter, the police officer stated that the exhumation of the body is essential for conducting a post-mortem examination of the deceased afresh due to the flaws in the previous autopsy report.
A two-member investigation team today left for Mirpurkhas, where Dr Maha is buried, to exhume the body after court permission. The court will appoint a judicial magistrate to supervise the exhumation process.
