MADURAI: The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court ordered exhumation and repostmortem examination on the body of a 20-year-old man — Ramesh of Saptur — upon learning that the first autopsy was not performed by forensic experts and was not videoed properly.

Justice G R Swaminathan ordered that the repostmortem examination should take place today (Friday) at the burial site. Earlier, an expert had submitted in his affidavit that though it was mentioned in the autopsy report that the hyoid bone was fractured and the internal organs were congested, the video footage neither shows the examination nor the dissection of the aforesaid organs.

Ramesh was found hanging from a tree on September 17, a day after he was summoned by Saptur police in connection with the case of a missing girl. Ramesh’s family allege that he died due to custodial torture.
